Euromed garlic extract is an oily herbal extract of Allium sativum L. bulb, a small perennial plant cultivated in Spain.
Garlic medicinal effects are primarily due to allicin and its transformation products. This compound is a transformation product from alliin (S-allyl-L-(+)-cysteine sulfoxide),
Chief constituent of fresh undamaged garlic which is degraded by the enzyme allinase (S-alkyl-L-(+)-cysteine lyase) when the tissues are cut or bruised.
Other compounds found in garlic bulbs are carbohydrates(fructans) and saponins (furostanol glycosides: sativin, proto-erubin B, and more).
