Antibacterial potential of garlic-derived allicin and its cancellation by sulfhydryl compounds
Allicin (allyl 2-propenethiosulfinate), an antibacterial principle of
garlic, has drawn much attention, since it has potent antimicrobial
activity against a range of microorganisms, including
methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
ImaDiallylthiosulfinate... Kills human lung pathogenic bacteria, including MDR Strains, as a vapor
Garlic (Allium sativum) has potent antimicrobial activity due to
allicin (diallylthiosulfinate) synthesized by enzyme catalysis in
damaged garlic tissues.
Allicin from garlic strongly inhibits cysteine proteinases and cytopathic effects of Entamoeba histolytica
The ability of Entamoeba histolytica trophozoites to destroy monolayers
of baby hamster kidney cells is inhibited by allicin, one of the active
principles of garlic.
Antiviral potential of garlic... a systematic update of pre-clinical and clinical data
Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is a common herb consumed worldwide as functional food and traditional remedy for the prevention of infectious diseases since ancient time.
Effects of supplementation levels of Allium fistulosum L. extract on in vitro ruminal fermentation characteristics and methane emission
Ruminants release the majority of agricultural methane, an important
greenhouse gas. Different feeds and additives are used to reduce
emissions, but each has its drawbacks.
