GarlicRich is made from the whole bulb of garlic to ensure its synergistic complexity. It is grown without pesticides, hand-picked and stored in cool temperatures away from light and air to preserve the enzymes and other compounds that make garlic so beneficial. The bulbs are gently processed without ethanol or other solvents.
Each odourless 500 mg softgel (concentrated 10:1) equals eight cloves of whole garlic and contains highly potent, stabilized allicin. Preparations of standardized allicin provide the greatest assurance of quality. A majority of studies showing a positive effect of garlic and garlic preparations are those that deliver a sufficient dosage of allicin.
