Odour Free via Enteric Coating
Although Garlicin is not "odour free" (as such products have destroyed most of the active constituents of Garlic), it is odour controlled. This is due to the enteric coating, which protects the alliinase from destruction by stomach acid. Because the tablet does not dissolve until it reaches the intestine, there is little chance of a bounce-back of odour from the stomach. If any odour is noticed on the breath or through skin pores, ensure the tablet is being taken before a meal with a glass of water and/or spread a two or more tablet dose between the different meals.
