What Is It?
GarliActive high-allicin garlic is grown and gently dehydrated in a patent pending proprietary process to preserve key compounds while eliminating characteristic garlic odor. GarliActive contains a natural alkalizing matrix consisting of calcium, magnesium and potassium to protect allinase from degrading in the acidity of the stomach. Allinase is the key enzyme required to convert alliin to allicin, the compound associated with the health benefits of garlic. With this specialized alkaline base, enteric coating is not needed and allicin yield is optimized. Preliminary information suggests that when placed in an acid environment, the ingredients of GarliActive effectively buffer pH. The acid repression is rapid, ultimately achieving a pH of 6.5-7.0 and delivering allicin to the stomach and small intestine without stomach upset or irritation. A recent study revealed that the bioavailability of this preparation was comparable to fresh garlic and was well tolerated.*
