Garlic extract

Garlic grows in many parts of the world and is a popular ingredient in cooking due to its strong smell and delicious taste. The garlic plant has long been considered beneficial to health and has multiple medical uses.

Allicin is the substance that gives garlic its specific odor and is known for its many health benefits. It can inhibit the growth of both bacteria and fungi, and it can destroy antibiotic-resistant strains.

The antimicrobial effect of allicin is due to its reaction with various enzymes, it can be used to fight various pathogens such as Helicobacter pylori, S. aureus, E. coli and various types of pathogenic yeasts such as Candida albicans. Thus, the inclusion of garlic extract in Bio-Kult Candéa helps to support a healthy natural intestinal flora.
