Garlic has been valued for centuries for its multi-faceted benefits. It has antioxidant action and can boost the level of natural glutathione, an important cellular detoxifier. The compounds allicin and oligosulfides found in garlic support healthy platelet function. Garlic may also act as a chelator of iron and other heavy metals that can accumulate in the body.
Published studies demonstrate garlic’s immune-supporting properties and numerous other health benefits. Garlic is reported to stimulate immunity, including macrophage activity, natural killer and killer cells, and lak cells. It has also been shown to increase the production of IL-10 and to decrease the production of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), IL-1alpha, IL-2, IL-6, and T-cell interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma). Clinical studies show that as much as 5–10 grams of garlic extract is effective in enhancing human immune responses.
Life Extension’s Optimized Garlic supplements contain allicin, a key health-promoting component of non-aged garlic. In fact, studies have highlighted allicin’s involvement in immune response and oxidative stress.
