Odorless garlic has been used primarily for hardening of the
arteries (atherosclerosis) and high blood pressure (hypertension).
As a side note, garlic has also been used to prevent tick bites.
Studies completed with one particular garlic supplement prior
to 1993 were mostly positive. In fact, the results from these
positive studies were the main reason garlic supplements have
been allowed in Germany and in the U.S. to refer to cholesterol
lowering activity. However, studies published since 1995 have
failed to show a consistent effect in lowering cholesterol.The
studies showing a positive effect of garlic and garlic preparations
are those that deliver a sufficient dosage of allicin.
Since allicin is the component in garlic that is responsible
for its easily identifiable odor, some manufacturers have
developed highly sophisticated methods in an effort to provide
the full benefits of garlic - they provide "odorless" garlic
products concentrated for allicin because allicin is relatively "odorless" until
it is converted to allicin in the body
Garlic preparations taken orally, even "odorless" products,
can produce a garlic odor on the breath and through the skin.
Gastrointestinal irritation and nausea are the most frequent
side effects. Beware of the propaganda on the dangers of allicin.
