Garli-Eze delivers similar effects associated with fresh garlic.
A study presented at the Annual Meeting of the American College of Nutrition indicates that a new proprietary garlic product developed by Nutra Products, Inc. (Reno, NV), Garli-Eze, delivers allicin, the key bioactive ingredient of garlic, to the body in amounts equal to that of fresh high allicin garlic macerate and yields no unsocial responses due to chewing fresh garlic.
Allicin is a very short-lived bioactive in garlic and thus requires sophisticated methods to measure its appearance. The study presented used a method developed by Dr. Larry Lawson, a world-renowned garlic researcher. This method employs a highly sensitive method of analyzing the breath after ingestion of garlic and unequivocally can determine if garlic was both delivered to the body for absorption, as well as its subsequent absorption.
The preliminary human study indicated that Garli-Eze could deliver large amounts of allicin directly to the upper gastrointestinal tract where it can be easily absorbed. Though it delivers as much natural allicin as fresh garlic, Garli-Eze does not contain offensive odors or discomfort. This new, all natural proprietary process is designed to eliminate the degradation of alliinase, which occurs when high potency garlic mixes with stomach acid. Garli-Eze activates in stomach acid yet doesn't use an "enteric coating," which typically employs a mix of synthetic chemicals designed to protect the capsule contents from stomach acid.
