    What is Bio-Garlic?

    Bio-Garlic consists of tablets with highly concentrated, garlic. One tablet contains 300 mg of dried garlic powder, standardized for content of the amino acid alliin Bio-Garlic is produced in a way that preserves the active ingredients and their enzyme activity from the fresh garlic.

    When alliin comes into contact with the enzyme alliinase, the substance allicin is formed, which gives garlic its characteristic odor. This process takes place already in your mouth when you chew on fresh garlic.

    The Bio-Garlic tablets are coated which means that they do not dissolve in the stomach. Only when the tablets are ingested and fully disolved in the intestine, the garlic enzyme alliinase is activated and converts the alliin to allicin, hereby reducing the risk of garlic breath significantly. Furthermore the delayed dissolution of the tablet means that the alliin and alliinase content are not broken down and inactivated in the stomach.


    Ingestion of 2-3 tablets of Bio-Garlic per day is equivalent to ½ -1 clove of garlic or 1.8-2.7 g of fresh garlic.


    Bio-Garlic may be used by pregnant and lactating women.

    About heart and blood pressure

    When the heart beats, it creates pressure that pushes blood through the blood vessels. The blood pressure is a result of two forces. The first force occurs as blood pumps out of the heart and into the arteries. This is called the systolic blod pressure. The second force is created as the heart rests between heart beats. This is called the diastolic blood pressure. A normal blood pressure will, at rest, lie between 100-140 (systolic) and 60-90 (diastolic).

    About the immune function

    The immune system consists among other things of the blood, white blood cells, antibodies, and the lymph system. The immune system has also affiliated organs such as the thymus, the spleen and lymph nodes, the tonsils and the appendix.

    Our immune system has several functions in the body. One of them is to protect us from harmful microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi. Another of the immune system's tasks is to neutralize abnormal developed cells.

    About stress

    Stress is changes in our body and brain as a result of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. Stress is triggered by stressful feelings and thoughts. Stress can for example be triggered by relationship problems or work-related problems. It is primarily long-term stress that strains health.

    A safe product

    Garlic has a long tradition as a folk medicine in many countries.

    Bio-Garlic is a very safe product, and is generally well tolerated. In some cases the odour of garlic may pervade the breath and skin but might be masked with gum, chlorophyll tablets or parsley.

    As a precaution, it is recommended not to take garlic preparations 1-2 weeks before an operation. This is due to an anticoagulant effect of garlic.
