was already an established and trusted remedy when the Greek physician
Hippocrates included it in his list of favorite herbal medicines. In fact,
ancient records indicate that the pungent herb was one of man's earliest
medicines dating back some 5,000 years. Through this long period of
history, a pattern of effective uses emerged which served to guide modern
researchers in the 20th century. For example, the Greek physician
Dioscorides, who lived in the 1st century AD, wrote of Garlic: "It doth
clear the arteries." Science has now validated this claim by proving that
Garlic does indeed lower cholesterol and triglycerides as well as help to
reduce clot formations (thrombi) in the blood. Numerous studies done within
the last 20 years verify numerous main activities or modes of action for
In order to produce a high quality garlic product, one must start with a
high quality raw garlic. We do at LifeSource Vitamins! We go to great
lengths to provide the best, always! Fresh garlic contains an enzyme called
“allinase” and “alliin”, which are contained in different parts of the
garlic plant. This unique structure is designed as a defense mechanism
against microbial pathogens of the soil. When fungi or other soil pathogens
attack the cloves, the membrane of those compartments is destroyed, and
within 10 seconds, all the alliin is converted into a new compound called

Why do we crush our Garlic?
When raw garlic is crushed or chopped, alliin reacts with the enzyme
allinase. Garlic was designed so that the alliin and the allinase were in
different parts of the garlic plant. They are meant to react and protect
the garlic plant when it was crushed. Together the action of the enzyme
allinase with the amino acid, alliin produces allicin. Allicin is what is
responsible for the amazing health benefits of raw garlic. If you were to
eat raw garlic whole without crushing it, you would miss the good benefits
of it! So always crush the garlic or chop it fine to get the benefits. It
is best to use garlic as fresh as possible as allicin starts to diminish
quickly after it’s produced.*
, once thought to be so unstable that nothing could stop its immediate
degradation to inactive compounds, is actually more stable than originally
thought. In fact, dry powdered Garlic has Allicin-producing potential.
Allicin is an extract that is extracted from garlic. It accounts for the
majority of the good things about garlic. In concentrated form, it can have
many health benefits. It also is being employed as an immune system
stimulant. Garlic has known heart benefits. Many people are finding benefit
for colds and flu prevention. It is being tested for use against antibiotic
resistant infection. There are many studies conducted with allicin and
cancer. Some are targeted at prevention. In addition there are studies,
where it is used to kill cancer cells.*
Aging a Garlic product to reduce or eliminate odor appears to rob
Garlic of its most valuable properties. We don’t do this at LifeSource
Last but not least is the discovery that Garlic consumption is inversely
proportional in producing benefits to wellness. In other words, the more
Garlic one ingests the lower the risk of serious illness. This is one of
the best arguments for Garlic supplementation as a regular part of the
daily diet. Most of us won't eat enough Garlic in our food to deliver the
protection we desire, so choosing a Garlic supplement for the whole family
is being "pill-wise."

Allicin is physiologically active in microbial, plant and mammalian cells.
In a dose-dependent manner allicin can inhibit the proliferation of both
bacteria and fungi or kill cells outright, including antibiotic-resistant
strains like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Furthermore, in mammalian cell lines, including cancer cells, allicin
induces cell-death and inhibits cell proliferation. In plants allicin
inhibits seed germination and attenuates root-development. The majority of
allicin's effects are believed to be mediated via redox-dependent
mechanisms. In sub-lethal concentrations, allicin has a variety of
health-promoting properties, for example cholesterol- and blood
pressure-lowering effects that are advantageous for the cardio-vascular
