Thanks to S-allylcysteine, a stable and odorless derivative of amino acid cysteine, Allicys® prevents oxidative stress, cell damage and the risk of developing certain types of chronic disease like coronary heart disease through the scavenger activities of ROS and RNS.
SAC contributes to stimulate the production of the vascular hydrogen sulfide and enhance the regulation of endothelial NO, with smooth muscle cell relaxation and vasodilation. Allicys® also have ACE inhibitory activity by mproving arterial compliance.
Allicys® increases also the levels of enzymatic antioxidants and inhibition of pro-oxidant enzymes. Allicys helps to reduce cardiovascular risk factors. The antioxidant action proves effective against the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, promotes the formation of glutathione, an important endogenous antioxidant.
