Garlic contains all the essential amino acids and a large number of chemical compounds protecting cells.
Allicin is the first and major volatile sulfur compound of garlic. Many of the beneficial claims made for garlic are ascribed to allicin which have been studied widely. Allicin shows direct antioxidant activity by trapping radicals.
