Re: to those of you who eat raw garlic cloves...

First off, raw garlic doesn't form allicin unless it is CRUSHED!!!! Cutting a raw clove or swallowing it whole probably isn't doing anything for you. As far as garlic pills or capsules go, my understanding is that the garlic MUST be specially freeze dried to be fully effective. Allicin forms in the presence of moisture when the garlic is crushed. Allicin starts to degrade very radiply after it is formed. For an effective pill, the clove is carefully peeled. It is then freeze dried, which removes all the moisture. The clove is then crushed into powder and put into a pill, but since it is absolutely dry no allicin forms. When the pill is swallowed, the moisture in the stomach activates the allicin.
