Allicin - "Beyond Immunity"
Today Infectious Disease Ranks as the #1 Killer of Humans, World Wide!

Medical authorities are well aware that they are barely "one step ahead of catastrophe" - that is, a world essentially unable to defend itself against an onslaught of infectious diseases for which there remains little, if any, effective medical treatment. The truth is... we are losing the battle for our health.
Infectious diseases have returned to their former prominence. It is estimated that the number of bacteria, viral, and fungal pathogens to be found either in or around every human being is infinite. This is why, after 70 years of producing pharmaceutical antibiotics and prescribing them for many types of illnesses, mankind has to admit that, according to recent surveys, 90% of visits to doctor's offices are still "infection related".
Just as an example... Americans suffer with over 1 billion colds and flu every year. 125,000 will be hospitalized due to flu and pneumonia. And in an average flu season, nearly 40,000 Americans will die from influenza and pneumonia.
Why the apparent lack of progress in the fight against infectious diseases caused by those many microbial "bad guys"?
Over 1 million metric tons of man-made antibiotics have been dispersed into the biosphere in the past fifty years to cure these and other infections, half for human use and half for animal use. This means that the indigenous bacteria of all living species are richly populated with resistant bacteria that we cannot get rid of.
Is it any wonder that medical authorities, by their own admission, are frustrated and frightened?
Monsters called "Antibiotic-resistant Super Bugs" have destroyed any illusion that we have won the war against infectious diseases. Cases of antibiotic-resistance have been documented since the 1950s, but the fears of unconquerable bacteria were drowned in a steady stream of newer and more powerful antibiotics, like Methicillin in the mid 1970s.
But now... guess what? That stream is drying up! [Now the super-bug known as "Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus" or MRSA has evolved to be immune to Methicillin and is killing thousands of Americans every year.]
Many of these same scientists now admit that they are looking at natural alternatives to help bail us out. That's where allicin "the heart of garlic" comes in.
Great physicians, herbalists, and healers have suggested for thousands of years that something in garlic is good for human health. Garlic itself has been used by every culture the world over, dating back over 5,000 years. Egyptian slaves building the pyramids were provided rations of garlic, not only to improve the quality of their daily rations, but also to keep them free of disease.
Millions of mothers know that fresh garlic cloves produce healing results. Longevity studies conducted by Dr. Narain at the Public Health Department in Delhi, India, revealed that 98% of all "centurions" studied (people who live 100 years) consumed at least one clove of garlic every day. According to a recent study conducted by the National Cancer Institute, garlic and similar vegetables may be the reason why Chinese men have so little prostate cancer.
The latest developments in research indicate that garlic's primary active ingredient, allicin, may become a major player on the health scene.
Garlic's health benefits are truly legendary. But only now, in the 21st century, has garlic's potential to conquer modern-day health challenges been revealed. At long last, after 80 years of trying to release the "mother substance", researchers have made the natural allicin molecule available to assist mankind where modern medicine is failing us.
Over the past 20 years, many compounds that are formed from allicin as it degrades have been isolated, characterized, and experimented upon. An enormous amount of research has been published on the properties of these breakdown components that are formed when fresh garlic is cut, crushed, chopped, chewed, or processed.
Of these well-known and categorized sulfur-containing components, it's allicin itself that stands head and shoulders above the rest, exhibiting the most exciting, the most interesting, and the most beneficial properties. It's not just coincidental that this amazing compound contains exactly the same reactive sulfur group that sulfa drugs, the very first antibiotics, contained back in the 1930s.
Now, with the advent of exciting new technology, for the first time ever it's possible to produce stabilized allicin on a commercial scale. This sophisticated refinement process takes the finest raw garlic cloves and formulates allicin liquid, which is then carefully spray-dried to produce pure allicin powder.
Now you can receive all of the wonderful benefits of garlic - highly concentrated, and without the negative side-effects of garlic odor and taste.
The availability of pure, stabilized allicin has, in turn, led to even more research confirming the most incredible spectrum of activity against today's most pressing health challenges. These include, but are not limited to, multiple drug resistant and flesh-eating bacteria; viral and fungal infections; environmental toxicity; and microorganisms that have long been the scourge of modern man. Even low concentrations of allicin have been shown to kill tuberculosis, smallpox, and the bacteria that cause food poisoning, pneumonia, meningitis, stomach ulcers, bubonic plague, toxic shock syndrome, and many more threats to your health.
Allicin has been referred to as "Mother Nature's defender" or "The Heart of Garlic" - which happens to be the title of a recent book by Peter Josling, Director of the Garlic Centre in East Sussex, United Kingdom. And more recently, Peter Josling has written the book, "Nature's Antibiotic".
These descriptive phrases for allicin seem appropriate when you consider that years of research conducted at the Garlic Centre, the world's leading garlic research center, have proven the pharmacological activities of allicin in many areas, including... anticoagulation, antihypertensive, antimicrobial, antibiotic, antiparasitic, antimycotic, antiviral, antitumoral, antioxidant, anti-aging, antiplatelet, detoxifies heavy metals, fibrinolusis, humoral immunity (refers to antibody production, and all the accessory processes that accompany it), hypolipidaemic (lipid-lowering), and immune enhancer and modulator.
Medical researchers in America and in Oxford, England, have shown allicin to reduce total cholesterol levels by 12% to 40% when larger than maintenance amounts of allicin are consumed for a period of six weeks. Significant reduction of blood pressure was also experienced by the test subjects. John Hopkins Medical School reports that the most common cause of sinusitis is a fungal infection. Allicin is very effective with many fungi, including Aspergillus, Candida, Coccidioides, Cryptococcus, Histoplasma and Trichophyton.
John Hopkins Medical School reports that the most common cause of sinusitis is a fungal infection. Allicin is very effective with many fungi, including Aspergillus, Candida, Coccidioides, Cryptotoccocci, Histoplasma and Trichophyton. Antibiotic drugs are NOT effective against fungal infections, and that is why your doctor's usual treatment of sinusitis with antibotic drugs often produces disappointing results.
Recently, researchers in Pennsylvania have shown that by injecting an allicin compound called diallyl disulfide, tumors can be reduced by half. Allicin breaks down in the body to diallyl disulfide. By adding the sulfur compound, sallylcysteine, it can stop cancer-causing agents from binding to human breast cells. In Iowa, a large group of 41,837 women of ages 55 to 69 were monitored for cancer incidence for five years via the State Health Registry. The results showed that consumption of garlic was inversely associated with risk of developing colon cancer, similar to earlier studies done with vegetable and fruit consumption.
Currently, there are several National Health Service hospitals in the U.K. that use allicin to treat MRSA, a term used to describe methycillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus - a strain of bacteria that have become resistant to all penicillin drugs, like methicillin, oxacillin, and amoxicillin.
Why would they use allicin in those hospitals? Because allicin is highly effective against MRSA, that's why! According to the British Journal of Biomedical Science, 2004 61 (2), "Allicin is considered to be the most potent antibacterial agent in crushed garlic extracts."
Additionally, allicin has been found to successfully penetrate a "biofilm" - referred to by researchers as "slime cities". These are armored, defensive communities inside our bodies where many bacterial strains live together, reproduce, and connive together to avoid the chemical antibiotics your doctor prescribes. They can, and even do, hide from your own immune system!
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control, and Prevention estimates that "65% of all human bacterial infections involve biofilms. Bacteria living outside the biofilms are a thousand times more likely to be killed by antibiotics than bacteria living inside these slime cities."
But allicin is known to seek them out and kill them, giving rise to the expression in the title... "Beyond Immunity".
Allicin is far more powerful and beneficial than any commercial product tested. This is proven by the consistent failure of commercial garlic supplements in clinical and university studies. This is because the famous and well-advertised brands of commercial garlic products really contain little or no allicin. In truth, they only provide "allicin potential". They rely on your own body to be able to create allicin from the dried garlic once you have swallowed the tablet or capsule.
It is possible that a small amount of allicin can be produced, provided the environment in the gastric tract is perfect, and even that could take several hours and lead to an unwanted garlic odor. Even so, not one of these commercial products contain enough allicin to be medicinally effective. One of the problems with the garlic supplement approach is that the enzyme allinase in garlic which is essential to produce allicin is rendered inactive by stomach acid.
So forget about Garlique and Garlimax; forget about Kwai and Kyolic; forget about Pure Gar and Garlic Powder; because they only contain "allicin potential" or tiny amounts of allicin at best.
But there is one garlic product that does contain the real thing - and lots of it. That product is
The 300 mg. of allicin in Alli-C is already pure. It does not have to be potentially "produced" in the stomach - it has already been produced, stabilized, and dried into a pure allicin powder trade-named Allisure through a patented process.
With Alli-C you don't have to wait, or guess at the results. You just swallow one vegetarian capsule, and the allicin you need gets delivered in a medicinally effective dose.
This new "breakthrough" product is a combination of pure allicin and Vitamin C plus natural citrus bioflavinoids. It is the original "real, allicin-yeilding product". Each Alli-C capsule contains 300,000 mcg (micrograms) of pure, patented allicin powder, plus 75 mg. of Vitamin C.
The 300,000 mcg or micrograms (which is equal to 300 mg or milligrams) of allicin in each capsule of Alli-C provide the equivalent benefits of the allicin you might consume by eating 30 to 40 cloves of fresh garlic!
For the first time, garlic's active component has been isolated, captured, stabilized, concentrated, and through a patented process it can be delivered to where your body needs it.
And now you can get the health benefits from consuming garlic without the social risks produced by people-repelling "garlic breath"! Even though it is allicin which contributes the most pungent part of the odor from raw garlic when it is cut or crushed or chewed, the stabilized and dried allicin powder in the Alli-C capsules does NOT produce the odor of raw garlic, neither as garlic breath nor as little "garlic burps" from your stomach.
Vitamin C has proven to work synergistically with allicin, dramatically improving the performance of either one standing alone.
Isn't it time that you treated yourself and your family to the tremendous health benefits available from Alli-C?
Even if you already look good and feel well, you'll notice a difference when you take Alli-C regularly. Within a few weeks, your system will be detoxing, and you should notice an improvement in your general health and well-being.
You'll be buying into "protection and prevention" - and anyone knows that prevention is always better than treatment.
Nothing in this article should be construed as making claims that allicin or Alli-C will treat, heal, or cure any disease or any person, any more than a doctor "heals" a broken arm or leg. While the physician may set and immobilize the broken limb, if healing occurs it is the body itself that does the healing. We do know that the body has the amazing ability to repair, rebound, and even recover when we give it the correct "medicine" - whether it be drugs, nutrients, exercise, massage, herbs, or even pure water.
