To all my readers past and present, have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year 2012.

Over here in Cornwall, United Kingdom, as I write there is no hint of frost, snow or anything remotely resembling the trappings of a festive atmosphere. The weather is mild and full of upside down sunshine - lots of rain and intermittent showers! Bit unusual compared to last year where snow tumbled down on our streets and houses. But that isn't going to dampen our spirits.

Climate change or not, snow, rain, wind or shine - where ever you are on this earth, what ever you're doing - take care and keep healthy.

Lots of love and happiness

Jason and Randi at Elixir Health Foods
Wadebridge, Cornwall, United Kingdom.

Quest Odourless Liquid Garlic - Great Antifungal Properties

This is a popular product in-store and over our website, especially because it's in a liquid form, for fast absorbtion into the body and because it's odourless. Garlic is a powerful antioxidant with so many applications. It's one of the few supplements or foods which is anti-fungal and therefore offers great versatility in its use.

How Quest Garlic is manufactured - allicin or no allicin?
There are two schools of thought on garlic. Those who demand "allicin" based garlic and those who prefer garlic manufactured by a "cold-aging" process, which is Quest's preferred method.

Once garlic is cut or crushed the chemicals in it react together to produce "allicin", which is considered to be the active ingredient that give garlic its cell-killing, germ-destroying power. The problem is, allicin is quite unstable and if in the process of making garlic supplements the allicin is cut or crushed and left to stand, even for a short time, the allicin quickly disappears, producing a supplement which isn't so effective.

Quest, on the other hand, understanding the short-lived lifespan of allicin have another method of extraction, which I personally support.

How do they do it?
It involves taking the highest quality organically-grown garlic, slicing it without acid or heat, and placing it in large stainless steel tanks for twenty months! During this cold-aging period, allicin is converted to "extremely valuable compounds that do not naturally occur with traditional /commercial processing methods." Finally the garlic is extracted to harvest mainly water and some oil soluble compounds.

An extra bonus is that the end product is completely odourless.
