When garlic is chopped or crushed it releases sulphur compounds which contain its health benefits. Allicin is the compound that is responsible for the odour of garlic but is unstable and only present immediately after the cutting or chewing garlic. The water soluble S-allyl compounds are found to have several medicinal benefits and are readily absorbed into the circulatory system.
Kyolic Aged Garlic
Not all garlic supplements are alike.
Kyolic Aged garlic is produced from organically grown cloves cold aged for 20 months to produce sulphur containing compounds including s-allyl cysteine and S-allyl mercaptocysteine.
Although garlic is soaked in alcohol for 20 months, there is no alcohol in Kyolic garlic supplements. 
Aged garlic is odourless because it does not contain the compound allicin.
