Alliin (S-allyl cysteine sulfoxide), first identified by Stoll and Seebeck in 1947, is considered the main specific principle of garlic since that time [16]. Alliin can be found in intact garlic and its reduced form; S-allyl-cysteine is the major component of aged garlic extract (AGE), together with other derived organosulfur compounds [12, 13]. It is absorbed in the intestine via the amino acid transported for cysteine [17], exhibits an hypoglycemic effect, and also increases blood insulin concentrations [18], and its antioxidant activity has been widely studied [19].
