There are many scientific benefits to taking garlic supplements. But what motivated me the most was that these garlic capsules create an immunomodulatory effect in the body, which causes an increase in defense cells, which act by fighting infections caused by bacteria, viruses and fungi. The main responsible for this effect is allicin, which inhibits the growth and multiplication of these microorganisms.

Take with largest meal once a day and to boost your immune system. Seems to keep me in overall energetic state. Also take powder out of capsule and put a quarter of it in my nasal irrigation routine. I do a second rinse just with salt to lessen the smell which remains over a day if you don't. Capsules are high quality as well as the attractive plastic bottle.

I’ve monitored my blood pressure for several years. It’s been a challenge to keep it anywhere near high-normal (135 to 145) systolic. Most of the time it tends toward the 150 to 160 range. I’ve tried any number of other solutions like Hawthorn, Curcumin, Ubiquinol, Saw Palmetto and of course dark chocolate. They’ve helped perhaps ever so slightly. However, when I started taking these Optimized Garlic Capsules, along with Lake Avenue Serrapeptase my Blood Pressure plummeted 35 to 40 points. I’ve only been taking these things for a couple weeks but my BP is now routinely 125/80 and still dropping. If I stop taking one or the other, my BP goes back up 10 to 20 points (135 to 145 Systolic). The two things in combination are remarkable. It even got rid of my headaches. Have no idea if this will work for others but it’s worth a shot.

Simple yet one of the greatest immune and cardiovascular systems boosters around. I used to eat raw garlic every morning but the after taste and burps weren't nice. I take this product along with others like grape seed, celery and Gingko to counter some nasty side effects from COVID.

Really a huge bottle. Garlic smells in a proper way, any digestive/stomach problems haven't appeared while consuming. Hope it helps to support the immune system.

Obviously there are interesting studies concerning the potential antibacterial effects of garlic, but the studies that indicate the effect garlic/allicin may have on different Heat Shock Proteins are interesting as well. This extract is standardized for its allicin-content.
