Allimax delivers real bioactive, stabilized allicin from garlic. Allimax works to boost your immune system with one of the most potent immunity enhancers available, and has been shown to be able to reduce instances of the common cold and hasten its recovery.
What Exactly is Allicin?
In fresh garlic, there are two precursor chemicals: alliin – a sulphur compound; and alliinase – an enzyme. When the garlic is subjected to stress, such as when it’s cut or crushed, these chemicals come together and a reaction starts, which begins by forming a compound called allicin. This also generally happens when the garlic is being attacked by a fungus, or virus, or bacteria, and may even be triggered by a parasite or an insect.
It turns out this allicin may be what is responsible for many of the biological properties attributable to garlic.
Although allicin is unstable in fresh garlic (quickly changing into a series of other sulphur-containing compounds shortly after it is created), researchers learned how to capture and stabilize allicin for study about 15 years ago, which has enabled them to discover exactly what it can do. Allicin has an amazing range of biological activity, being able to kill funguses, viruses, bacteria, and parasites. It’s also good for the immune system, and for the cardiovascular system, as well. All of this has been confirmed by controlled, clinical evaluations and proper trials.
The Common Cold Study was a breakthrough in garlic research. In it, 142 patients were recruited – 73 of whom had one capsule of Allimax per day, and the remainder had a matching placebo. There were 60% fewer colds in the Allimax group and more importantly, the number of days that they were infected was dramatically different. On average, the placebo takers took five days to recover from a cold, so Allimax showed genuine antiviral activity. But more importantly, it was also able to prevent a reinfection, so we now know that Allimax is both a preventative and a treatment.
Each capsule of regular Allimax contains:
Medicinal ingredients: Approximately 54 mcg Allicin, from 180 mg of Allisure powder.
Allimax is free from artificial colouring, artificial flavours, salt, gluten and preservatives. Allicin garlic pills are suitable for vegans or vegetarians.
Regular Allimax: Take one capsule daily with meals. Do not chew — swallow capsule whole.
Children: Not recommended for children under the age of 3.
Keep out of reach of children. Do not use if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or prior to surgery. Consult a health care practitioner if you are taking blood thinners or fish oil; or if you have a medical condition such as diabetes, skin disorders or if you develop persistent gastric or abdominal distress; or if you are taking protease inhibitors. Hypersensitivity (e.g. allergy) has been known to occur; in which case, discontinue use.
