Why is benecin better than other garlic products?

A powerful garlic supplement should contain a high volume of allicin. The production of allicin requires two garlic components – alliin and the enzyme allinase. When fresh garlic is cut or crushed, these 2 released components will form allicin.

It is difficult for allicin to form in the body from non-stabilized dried garlic powder and that affects bioavailability.

 Alliin + Alliinase = Allicin

benecin DEFENSE is a revolutionary, all-natural supplement produced through a patented process of extracting allicin from heads of garlic. It contains 100% allicin ready for absorption by your body, which means it is a stronger product compared to others.

Commonly known garlic supplements made with garlic oil, aged garlic extract or garlic powders do not contain allicin. Allicin still needs to be formed in the stomach after consumption of these products. This however, cannot happen because alliinase will be destroyed in the acid environment of the stomach. Several clinical studies showed that these common garlic products do not even reach a fraction of the claimed allicin amount of 0.6% - 1%.

On top of bioavailable stabilized allicin and its breakdown products, benecin DEFENSE also contains black aged garlic which provides S-Allyl Cysteine (SAC) and polyphenols. Both compounds are strong anti-oxidative agents that help to maintain a healthy immune and heart function, which adds to the efficacy of this product.

What is Stabilized Allicin and how is it different from Standardized?

benecin DEFENSE is the result of a patented process, and is produced in a GMP & FDA certified facility, with high quality measures in place to deliver a premium quality product, at all times. 

As for the active ingredient Xaludicin®, very carefully selected garlic bulbs are grown in specific areas and weather conditions to optimize the yield of Allicin and the full spectrum of the garlic’s bio-active compounds. These garlic bulbs go through a proprietary method of processing, coupled with stringent quality control to ensure the standardization of the bio-actives and meeting all its specifications. 

With stabilized Allicin encapsulated within benecin DEFENSE there is no better garlic supplement for bioavailability and efficacy!

When other garlic products say they are standardized it merely means they have consistent active ingredients – when rehydrated with water in a testing environment. Allicin still needs to be formed in the stomach after consumption. The powder gets re-hydrated in the stomach, allowing for the reaction between the Alliin and the Alliinase – unfortunately during that process alliinase gets destroyed in the acid environment of the stomach, significantly reducing the allicin delivered to the bloodstream.

Stabilized allicin is the Gold Standard of allicin products.

Does benecin have a strong garlic smell?

No, during the extraction and drying process we also deodorize. You will smell a mild garlic odor when opening the bottle but you will not experience garlic breath after taking benecin.
