so last night I was google around when I found this

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/3344325.stm

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj6C6aEyrYk

we talking about MRSA this is no joke!

Question is this too good to be true? I am trying to debunk it so far seem to be true! Not to over dramatize this, it like they found a cure for MRSA then forgot all about it? What the hell is going on here?

more links "garlic is 100 times more effective than two popular antibiotics at fighting the Campylobacter bacterium" http://news.wsu.edu/pages/publications.asp?Action=Detail&PublicationID=31554

here is a new article I found, It's the sun do not judge me. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/woman/health/article1279834.ece

Yes, that is correct. If you completely mash garlic, like in a mortar and pestle, you have destroyed all the cell walls separating the alliinase from the alliin, maximizing the amount of allicin generated.

Don't get your panties in a bunch, did I say that I was opposed to using allicin/allicinmax/garlic to treat disease? NO. Why does it work on MRSA and nearly every other simple microorganism? Because it's an inherently toxic compound, no hippy-dippy-ness necessary to talk about toxicity.

If I wanted comments like this I would have posted it in 4chad. PLEASE by all means debunk it. And I don't known the process in which they make it you look here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj6C6aEyrYk seemed to have cured people with MRSA using that allicinmax. By the way "toxic" when you use that word make you sound like a hippy. Here the wiki link you should read the 3 most common type of toxic entities.

Wikipedia states that allicin decomposes quite rapidly at room temperature. I suspect while they're may be some allicin in your supplement, it's mostly junk.

hey man I bought some allicinmax leaflet you get with it says "government approved test show that as many as 777 capsules in one does could be taken without detrimental effects"you only get 90 in a box.So I think I am safe, so far I taken 6 and feel fine. If I would take 777 antibiotics I don't think I would be typing this right now.

Nice find! Knew about garlic anecdotally, but hadn't seen this article.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=garlic+mrsa

Looks like just a few studies so far. Bottom-line, like most herbal or food-based remedies there is no $$ in in for the pharmacological companies.

To my chemist eye, allicin looks pretty darn toxic! Not surprised it's killing bacteria and other small organisms.

Here's another nifty study for ya: "Preventing the common cold with a garlic supplement: a double-blind, placebo-controlled survey".

"One hundred forty-six volunteers were randomized to receive a placebo or an allicin-containing garlic supplement, one capsule daily, over a 12-week period between November and February...volunteers in the active group were less likely to get a cold and recovered faster if infected. Volunteers taking placebo were much more likely to get more than one cold over the treatment period. An allicin-containing supplement can prevent attack by the common cold virus".

psilocybe semilanceata (the liberty cap 'magic' mushroom mostly native to europe) is also known to strongly inhibit MRSA growth*

theres also anectodal evidence around the web, in one case a girl with an MRSA sore took magic mushrooms with friends then woke up the next day with the sore dramatically healing

I just went through about a month of my wife thinking she was dying from MRSA (thanks doctors that dont do any tests and just tell the patient "hey, your gonna die" anyways, found the same info out on garlic, and allicin. I hear it will never become resistant, mrsa that is, to allicin, bc the process which it kills mrsa is different from antibiotics? I dunno. We did try it with her, and the "mrsa" she had seemed to react quickly, to the addition of the smashed garlic. Took garlic baths also and seemed to hold off whatever she had, from getting worse thats for sure. They say the longer you wait after you crush it, the more allicin builds up. Who knows if it really does, but wouldnt shock me. I really dont know if she even had mrsa, but hey, learned a lot about it during the period that my wife was off her rocker thinking it was her time to go =P

Good news. Always better to have more tools.

Now waiting for Allicin resistant staph.

Is still an antibiotic. What does it do to the other biopics?

Pharmaceutical companies exist to make money. They don't pretend otherwise. Maybe for categories of drugs with little profit incentive, like antibiotics, the discovery should be undertaken by the public sector (i.e. mine and yoursis monies).

Just one of many things that kill MRSA. http://www.worldhealth.net/news/cannabinoids_kill_hospital_superbug_mrsa/

Cannabis being another.

There's no adaptation in western medicine. It will take many years before anything non pharmaceutical is implemented on any sort of large scale.
