Nature's Way Garlicin® Cardiovascular Health -- 60 Enteric Coated Tablets

With Smart Release®. Exceeds clinically proven allicin release potency. 100% stomach acid protection. Rapid intestinal release. Odor-free Garlic. Enteric Coated Tablets. Scientific Research Shows Allicin is Essential for Garlic's Health Benefits.  . To Deliver The Clinically Proven Allicin Potency An Effective Garlic Supplement Must Have The Following:.  . High Enzyme Activity: Garlic is unique among herbs because its active compound allicin is not present until the special enzyme allinase is activated. This occurs when garlic is crushed or moistened. Garlicin® is made from a superior garlic powder specially processed to deliver maximum allinase activity.  . 100% Stomach Acid Protection: In only two seconds stomach acid completely deactivates allinase thus eliminating the potential for allicin production. Garlicin's proprietary enteric-coating provides over two hours of acid protection delivering the tablet and its allinase safely to the intestine.  . Rapid Disintegration: Once in the intestine the garlic tablet must rapidly disintegrate in order to fully activate the allinase enzyme and produce allicin - all in about 45 minutes! Only Garlicin® has been proven to disintegrate this fast and release its claimed allicin potency.  . Accurate Allicin Release Measurement: Simple dissolving crushed garlic tablets in water can produce a high allicin release. But when the same tablets are tested under gastrointestinal conditions according to U S Pharmacopoeia test method 724A their actual allicin release (as will be produced within the body) is significantly less. Using this more sophisticated test method Garlicin® is the only leading enteric-coated brand to meet its allicin release as stated on the label.  . The SmartRelease® Difference: Garlicin's proprietary enteric-coating provides 100% protection from stomach acid. Once in the intestine Garlicin® completely disintegrates in about 45 minutes providing maximum allicin release. Clinical studies show that 3600-5400 mcg of allicin per day is effective in maintaining cardiovascular health. This level is exceeded by taking two Garlicin® tablets daily.

"I get no after taste or odor after taking Garlicin. It is a good way to get the benefits of garlic without breaking the bank. Some of the other leading brands charge almost twice as much but don't even come close to giving you proportionately more benefit. I've used this for years and am happy with the health benefit I receive."

Oh my NOT Odorless
 July 18, 2010
"I got these for my kids because they were recommended as "great" chewable odorless tablets...This is not the case. You can smell the garlic just by opeing the bottle and my poor kids had stinky breath for 2 days (not just a stinky mouth, but a deep down stinky breath that mouthwash couldn't even hide!). We will go back to making our kids choke down capsules!"

"I tried other deodorized garlic before and I had heartburn and wake up during the night because of the supplement. This is absolutely tasteless and no burping of garlic at all. Great product!!"
