Antimicrobial effects of garlic ( Allium sativum L . )

  title={Antimicrobial effects of garlic ( Allium sativum L . )},
Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is a plant from the family of arcs (Aliaceae). It is a herbaceous plant with height of 20-40 cm, a bulb of strong odour and pungent taste. Sulphur compounds in garlic are responsible both for its strong smell, and for its medicinal properties. The undamaged plant contains alliin (S-allyl-L-cysteine sulfoxide). Allin is a soluble, crystal, odourless compound. It is a cysteine derivative and has antimicrobial properties. Standardized garlic powder contains 1.3% of allin…
