What is Allicin?
Allicin is found in garden onion. Allicin is isolated from garlic (Allium sativum). Nutriceutical Allicin is an organic compound obtained from garlic. It is also obtainable from onions, and other species in the family Alliaceae. It was first isolated and studied in the laboratory by Chester J. Cavallito in 1944. This colourless liquid has a distinctively pungent smell. This compound exhibits antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Allicin is garlic's defence mechanism against attacks by pests.

Health Benefits of Garlic Extract
Allicin, the active ingredient in garlic, has long been known to lower serum cholesterol, and a significant number of studies of garlic in various forms have demonstrated modest reductions in LDL cholesterol. Although it is claimed that odorless preparations of garlic are effective, most successful studies use garlic with the distinctive odor that is easily apparent on the skins of garlic eaters. In two studies, 900 mg of garlic and 9.6 mg of allicin were reported to lower LDL cholesterol by 14.2% and 6.6%, respectively. However, several studies have also shown garlic to have no effect on serum lipids and lipoproteins in humans. Garlic has not been reported to have any side effects of note, apart from the odor that many people find offensive in garlic eaters. Therefore, garlic may fit into the cholesterol-lowering diet, especially in countries with a high proportion of garlic eaters.
Use and Dosage
Garlic supplements with high allicin content are marketed for their ability to fight bacterial, fungal and viral infections. A typical dosage as detailed by the UMMC is two 200-milligram freeze-dried tablets taken three times per day, with tablets standardized to at least 0.6 percent allicin. Some supplements are standardized to contain 10 to 12 milligrams/Gm alliin and 4,000 micrograms of total allicin potential, which may be listed on the label as TAP.
