Garlic can be said to be a food we are very familiar with, but do you know what allicin is?
In fact, allicin is garlic extract, which contains at least 33 kinds of sulfide organic compounds. These sulfides are not only the source of pungent odor, but also the main part of allicin's medicinal and physical and chemical effects.
Allicin is difficult to extract
The structure of allicin is not stable, and it can be completely decomposed at room temperature for a long time, and it decomposes faster when heated, so it is very difficult to prepare and store allicin. At present, the methods for extracting allicin mainly use steam distillation, solvent leaching and supercritical CO2 (CSF-CO2) extraction. Although the first two methods are low in cost and simple in equipment, the purity and extraction rate of allicin produced are very low.
In order to solve these problems, Chiti adopts the supercritical CO2 fluid extraction method. This technology is a new type of extraction and separation technology. It has the advantages of no solvent residue and better retention of active ingredients in raw materials.At the same time, this preparation method can obtain the allicin with the highest efficiency, and meanwhile, the quality and stability of the allicin are the best.
In this regard, Chiti also tested the extracted allicin, and the results show that the extraction rate of our method can reach more than 92%, and the purity of allicin is about 84%, which is far better than other products on the market.
The role of allicin
The extraction of allicin is so difficult, but it is still loved by people, which is enough to prove that allicin has extremely high value.
1. Effects on the digestive system - prevention of gastrointestinal diseases
Studies have shown that Helicobacter pylori infection is the main cause of peptic ulcer, and allicin can effectively inhibit the colonization of Helicobacter pylori, reduce the proliferation of macrophages and promote the proliferation of gastric mucosal cells. More clinical reports pointed out that allicin has not only been used in the treatment of Helicobacter pylori-associated peptic ulcer, but also has the physical and chemical effects of allicin in the prevention and treatment of gastritis. The above functions can promote gastrointestinal digestion, discharge toxic substances, and benefit gastrointestinal health.
2. The impact on cardiovascular and blood system - prevention of cardiovascular disease
On the one hand, allicin can inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol, promote the decomposition of triglycerides in serum and liver, on the other hand, it can prevent fat deposition in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular, increase fibrinolytic activity, and block lipid peroxidation. Ultimately achieve the effects of reducing plasma concentration, relaxing blood vessels, regulating blood pressure, inhibiting thrombus formation and preventing arteriosclerosis.
3. Anti-tumor and bactericidal effect - improve immunity
The sulfide in allicin itself has a very strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect, and can inhibit and eliminate a variety of cocci, bacilli, fungi and viruses. Studies have shown that allicin can also induce tumor cell apoptosis through anti-oxidation, thereby blocking the synthesis of carcinogens, and finally achieve the purpose of anti-tumor. There are also scientific data confirming that some sulfides in allicin have a strong killing effect on Gram bacteria, so they have a significant effect in preventing and treating colds.
Chiti Allicin can be eaten anytime, anywhere
Many people choose to eat garlic to supplement allicin, but this approach has no effect. Because allicin is very unstable, it is easy to destroy the active ingredients, and it can also affect the breath, so it is not widely selected in the daily diet.
In fact, you can directly choose the purified Chiti allicin, which has stable structure and function, remarkable effect, and will not produce irritating odor. It can even be applied to cooking any food, and nutrients can be obtained anytime and anywhere.
Welcome all supplements to inquire!
