Allimax Allimed belongs to the unique line of dietary supplements based on garlic, characterized by premium quality. The preparation contains pure, stabilized Allisure® AC-23 allicin extract, which is obtained by the unique extraction method from fresh, raw garlic. The highly concentrated active substance is enclosed in small, vegetarian capsules that allow rapid absorption.
The supplement effectively supports the immune system and the cardiovascular system, and can also bring benefits while treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) or MRSA infection.
Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is a plant that has been used in medicine for centuries. Due to the strong antibacterial and antiviral and antifungal activity, it is often referred to as a natural antibiotic. Garlic also has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system - it optimizes blood pressure and lipid profile, and also has anti-inflammatory and anti-aggregating properties.
Allicin - the most important ingredient of garlic
The main bioactive component of garlic is allicin. It is an organosulfur compound that is not only responsible for its specific taste and smell, but also determines a number of health-promoting properties. However, it should be noted that allicin is not a ‘solid’ component of garlic. To make it happen, the garlic head has to be mechanically damaged (for instance through cross-cutting or crushing). Then, allium contained in it is transformed into allicin, under the influence of an enzyme called allinase.
Unfortunately, the allicin formed as a result of this reaction is very unstable. It quickly converts to other compounds, which significantly reduces or even completely eliminates the health-promoting effect of fresh garlic on the body. However, this product uses a patented extraction technology, which allows it to maintain the full potential and durability of allicin, which definitely distinguishes it from the widely available products on the market.
Documented antibacterial and antifungal properties
In many scientific publications regarding garlic, its outstanding antimicrobial activity (both against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria) and antifungal are underlined. It has high activity against strains such as Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Escherichia and Salmonella. What is more, the activity of garlic also includes bacteria that colonize the digestive system, including Helicobacter pylori, which is the etiologic agent of inflammation of the gastric mucosa and peptic ulcer disease. These benefits result from the presence of the allicin described above, which has the ability to penetrate the interior of the cell and directly affects the cytoplasm and enzymes.
Unlike traditional antibiotics, bacteria do not become resistant to allicin. What is more, it has even been shown that garlic is active even against certain strains resistant to antibiotic therapy. This includes, among others, MRSA, or methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus. In a study conducted on animals, a reduction in the number of live MRSA bacteria was observed after using the garlic extract.
The results of the study also confirm the antifungal action of garlic against yeast-like fungi of the Candida, Saccharomyces and Pichia genus.
The multidirectional effect on the circulatory system
It has been shown that garlic has a great impact on the functioning of the cardiovascular system. It has been confirmed that garlic-based extracts contribute to the reduction of blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and also have anticoagulant, anti-atherosclerotic and hypoglycemic properties. Therefore, garlic can be a natural complement to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
In summary, Allimax Allimed is a dietary supplement with a wide spectrum of health-oriented properties. In connection with the antimicrobial and immunostimulatory effects, the preparation is recommended in particular during the period of immunity decline and increased susceptibility to infection. It can also be helpful in the prophylaxis and therapy of cardiovascular disorders (atherosclerosis, hypertension, thrombosis).
According to the manufacturer's information, if necessary, the dose can be increased to 8 capsules a day. It is worth adding, however, that one capsule can be enough to obtain health benefits and improve well-being.
The product is not recommended for children under 3 years of age, because their immune system is not fully developed. For older children, supplementation should be consulted with a GP.
Allimax is a company specializing in the production of dietary supplements containing allicin (a substance present in garlic). Due to the lack of allicin in fresh garlic and the formation of this compound in the enzymatic reaction, it was necessary to learn the appropriate method of obtaining allicin.
In the course of the research, specialists cooperating with Allimax developed a patented process of deriving this substance from garlic, thus obtaining a bioactive and stable standardized extract.

Allicin (dialysyl thiosulfate) is a chiral compound that contains a sulfur atom. It is produced in garlic (Allium sativum); it is responsible for its characteristic, sharp smell and antibiotic properties. The precursor to allicin is alliin, found in garlic. The process of allicin formation takes place with the participation of the alliinase enzyme, which is activated after damage to garlic cell walls (for example by crushing the cloves).
Allicin has strong antimicrobial properties. It destroys harmful Gram-positive and Gram-negative, aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, with efficacy comparable to that of broad-spectrum antibiotics. In addition, it combats viruses, fungi, and parasites. Allicin has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system. By limiting the production of thromboxane, it prevents excessive platelet aggregation and protects against clot formation. It may also lower cholesterol and reduce oxidation of the LDL fraction.
Preparations with allicin are a valued element of general-health prophylaxis. They are recommended to improve immunity, they can also be used as part of the prevention of cardiovascular and circulatory diseases.
