EuroPharma - Terry Naturally GarliMed 275 mg. - 30 Vegetarian Capsules
EuroPharma GarliMed provides the benefits of garlic without the odor. EuroPharma GarliMed is the solution to that problem. GarliMed is a fresh garlic extract in an all-natural, food-grade enteric coated vegetable capsule that passes through the stomach to dissolve fully in the small intestine. This ensures that the beneficial compounds in garlic (especially alliin) are not weakened by exposure to stomach acid, and eliminates the possibility of garlic breath or odor. When the fresh garlic reaches its destination, it releases its nutrients in the optimal location for activation and absorption. The alliin is converted to allicin, which in turn provides a myriad of health benefits.
Garlic is one of the best known and scientifically proven herbs in the world. With wide ranging benefits such as heart health, cholesterol balance†, immune defense and critical cellular health, garlic is a powerhouse of nutrients that can make a real difference in your life. However, it has been a problem to get the full 4 grams of fresh garlic recommended by the authoritative German Commission E for optimal health daily.
EuroPharma GarliMed - How It Works
Garlic (Allium sativum) is known worldwide as a culinary ingredient and for its abilities to promote heart health. Recent meta-analyses have concluded that garlic supplementation can provide benefits for the cardiovascular system. However, the primary compound in garlic, allicin, is only viable for a short time. It is formed by the combination of alliin and allinase when garlic is crushed, but because it is quickly oxidized. Therefore, supplemental forms must protect the components of allicin until they arrive in the intestines, so that this valuable compound can be absorbed and used by the body.
GarliMed uses hand-harvested white garlic (harvesting by hand keeps the delicate nutrients in garlic from being damaged and oxidized) and provides the extract in a food-grade enteric-coated capsule. It easily passes through the acidic environment of the stomach and dissolves in the intestines. In this way, each once-daily serving of GarliMed equals 4 grams of fresh garlic – the amount recommended by the German Commission E. It is standardized to more than 4% alliin (11 mg), one of the key compounds of allicin.
EuroPharma GarliMed Frequently Asked Questions
Why is alliin important?
Alliin is one of the "co-creators" of allicin – the key compound found in fresh, not aged garlic. Allicin supports overall heart health, acts as an antioxidant, and supports the immune system.
Along with allinase (an activating enzyme), alliin combines and forms allicin. This is the same reaction that is responsible for the characteristic smell of garlic that occurs when a clove of fresh garlic is crushed. When exposed to oxygen, the way garlic is during a meal, allicin is not particularly stable.
That's why the best way to design a garlic supplement is to make sure that these two elements don't create allicin until they get into the intestine. For that reason, GarliMed uses a food-grade enteric coated vegetarian capsule that bypasses the acidic environment of the stomach and reaches the small intestine before it opens and releases its contents in the ideal location.
What's the difference between aged versus fresh garlic?
Aged and fresh garlic extracts are very different. They are processed differently and contain different components. Aged garlic extract contains S-allyl mercaptocysteine (SAMC). Interestingly, fresh garlic does not contain any SAMC, while aged garlic doesn't contain any beneficial yield of allicin. The majority of published research has been on fresh garlic and allicin.
Can I open the GarliMed capsule and sprinkle it on my food?
No, GarliMed is enteric coated and designed to remain intact until it reaches the intestines. This is to assure that allicin is not created prematurely. Alliin and alinase come together to create allicin. By assuring that allicin is created in the intestine, we not only improve absorption levels of this volatile compound, we avoid garlic breath as well. If the capsule is opened, both these advantages are lost and the product's efficacy may be reduced.
Can GarliMed be used for things other than heart health?
Absolutely! There have been published studies on garlic and blood sugar balance, lung support, every day immune health, as well as critical cellular health. GarliMed is an excellent once per day herbal product that provides a multitude of health benefits.
