Frequently Asked Questions about Allimed

Allimed, Allicin, Alliin, Allinase, Allisure... what do they all mean?

When fresh garlic is cut or crushed, a compound called Alliin combines with an enzyme called Allinase and a chemical reaction starts. The first compound that is formed is Allicin which is very unstable and quickly breaks down into other compounds.Through a new, patented process, British scientists have discovered a way to stabilize Allicin, producing Allisure.

Allimed is the most potent and bio-available brand of Allisure available which is why we at Optimal Health USA proudly distribute it.

What is in garlic that makes it so powerful?
We're not exactly sure where garlic lies on the food chain, but it has developed its own natural defenses against fungi, viruses and bacteria. Allicin is the result of this process, and it is the substance that possesses garlic's incredible anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
How is Allisure made?

Chemist Peter Josling, scientist Norman Bennett and collaborators have recently come up with a completely new, patented approach to producing a garlic supplement containing real Allicin. At a high concentration, Allicin is an oily unstable substance that quickly decomposes. However, in a unique, temperature and pressure-controlled process, water is used to continually flush Allicin from a reaction vessel as soon as it’s formed, yielding a diluted water solution of Allicin which is further diluted and freeze-dried onto a maltodextrin-matrix to produce stable Allicin powder. These controlled conditions maintain Allicin's potency and bioactivity. This sophisticated refinement process has, for the first time, captured garlic's active component Allicin, and delivers it directly to where your body needs it.

Allicin is not garlic, but the powerful, active component of garlic in concentrated form, never before available.  It has broad spectrum properties coupled with strong, immunity-boosting and immunomodulating capacities. This makes stabilized Allicin a highly significant clinical agent, especially in today’s world of widespread epidemics.
Does Allicin taste like garlic?
Initially yes, Allicin does taste like garlic for a short time, but the taste and odor do not linger as long as you might otherwise experience with other garlic products, or by simply eating garlic.
Is Allicin safe? Can I take it with my medicines?
Government approved tests show that several hundred capsules per day could be taken in one dose without detrimental effects (we don't recommend this, however.)

Research shows that Allicin can be taken with all medications with no adverse effects. However, it is advised that you check with your doctor if you are diabetic, on blood thinners or blood pressure medication. Always err on the side of caution - if in doubt, please check with your doctor.
