What is BioActive Garlic?
BioActive Garlic contains tablets with highly concentrated garlic. One tablet contains 300 mg of dried garlic powder with a standardized content of the alliin. BioActive Garlic is produced in a way that preserves the active ingredients and their enzyme activity that is known from fresh garlic.
When alliin comes into contact with the enzyme alliinase they form allicin. Allicin is what gives garlic its characteristic odor. Alliin and allinase are contained in different parts of the garlic clove. They mix if you cut, slice, chop or chew the clove.
The tablets in BioActive Garlic are coated to prevent them from dissolving in the stomach. The tablets remain intact and do not dissolve until they reach the small intestine. Here, alliinase and allicin react and are converted into allicin. Because of the delayed action, their content of alliin and alliinase is protected against the stomach acid. Also, it reduces significantly the risk of garlic breath.
Ingestion of 2-3 tablets of BioActive Garlic per day is equivalent to ½ -1 clove of garlic or 1.8 - 2.7 g of fresh garlic
BioActive Garlic may be used by pregnant and lactating women.
What is garlic?
Garlic (Allium sativum) is a bulbous plant that originally comes from Central and South Asia. It has been used as food and as a medicinal herb for thousands of years. Garlic contains a wide variety of active substances in the form of active sulfur compounds, volatile oils, fatty acids, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and many more.
About the heart and blood pressure
When the heart beats it creates pressure that pushes blood through the blood vessels. The blood pressure is a result of two forces. The first force occurs as blood pumps out of the heart and into the arteries. This is called the systolic blod pressure. The second force is created as the heart rests between heart beats. This is called the diastolic blood pressure. A normal blood pressure at rest should ideally lie somewhere between 100-140 (systolic pressure) and 60-90 (diastolic pressure).
About the immune function
The immune system consists, among other things, of white blood cells, antibodies, and the lymph system. The immune system has also affiliated organs such as the thymus, the spleen and lymph nodes, the tonsils, and the appendix.
Our immune system has several functions in the body. One of them is to protect us from harmful microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Another immune task is to neutralize cells that have developed abnormally.
Stress is changes in our body and brain triggered by the release of stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. Stress is caused by stressful feelings and thoughts. For example, stress can be triggered by relationship issues or work-related problems. It is primarily long-term stress that strains your health. Actually, stress is a completely natural body reaction to sudden danger. When primeval man was suddenly faced with a life-threatening situtation such as the approach of a fierce animal, the body released large amounts of cortisol. This resulted in a rapid increase in heart rate and blood pressure and intensified breathing. Biologically speaking, this reaction (also known as the fight-or-flight reaction) prepared the body to fight or run. Modern stress is the same process. However, because job-related stress or emotional stress lasts substantially longer and may even be chronic in some cases, it is harmful rather than potentially life-saving.
A safe product
Garlic has a long tradition as a folk medicine in many countries.
BioActive Garlic is a very safe product and is generally well tolerated. Because the tablets dissolve in the small intestine, the problem with garlic breath has been eliminated. In case there is slight garlic odor from the mouth or skin, chewing gum, chlorophyll tablets, or fresh parsley may come in handy.
As a precaution, it is recommended not to take garlic preparations 1-2 weeks before surgery. This is because of garlic's effect as an anticoagulant.
