Allicin extract in Allium sativum has the following effects:
Hypolipidaemic: lower high LDL (low density lipoprotein) cholesterol and increase HDL (high density lipoprotein), and also found to have reduce weight in rats.
Anticoagulatory effect: melts or thins the blood for easy flow and circulation to all parts of the body preventing venous thrombosis (blood clot).
Flavonone (Citrus limon extract) prevents oxidation of cholesterol reducing stroke and heart attack.
Bronchodilator: maintains patent respiratory airways. Viricidal and bactericidal effects.
Ajoene in Allium sativum extract does the following:
Antioxidants: help slow ageing process, looking young and fresh.
Diuretic effect (urination) and help remove toxic chemicals from the body via the kidney
Anti-inflammatory: reduces pains and feverishness
HYPERTONE is rapidly absorbed and extensively distributed after ingestion. Binding to plasma protein is low. Metabolism of allicin (Allium sativum) in HYPERTONE is by hepatic enzyme (CYP2C19) and reducing sugars is by hepatic enzyme (CYPB5R2), and excreted by kidney in urine.
Numbness (peripheral neuropathy)
Enhances blood circulation
Easy fatigability (tiredness)
Dosage and administration
Four dessertspoonfuls (40mls) three times daily before food. Gastritis, GERD/GORD, and Ulcer patients should take DAPROF HYPERTONE after meals.
HYPERTONE is contraindicated in patients with clinically significant hypersensitivity to any of the components contained in the formulation.
Adverse reactions: Few reported cases of laxative (not purgative) effect in 10/10/13 since its presence in 2009. Palpitation and dizziness occur in some ulcer patients this was seen in very few women (1 in 1000). Ulcer patients who take it before food may experience gastritis or acid reflux or abdominal discomfort, therefore those with gastritis, GERD/GORD or stomach ulcer should take DAPROF HYPERTONE after meals.
Newly reported side effect is constipation in May, 2023 by a man. Making it the first ever side effect since 2009 when this medicine was FDA approved
Precautions: keep out of reach of children. Keep in a cool dry place. Shake well before use.
Use in pregnancy and lactation: no evidence of foetal mortality of HYPERTONE in pregnant women. No research has been done to establish its excretion in breast milk. HYPERTONE should be used in pregnancy and in lactating women only if the potential benefits outweigh the risks.
Treatment of overdose: drink a lot of water to dilute it in the stomach.
Interactions with other drugs: Fluoxetin and Fluvoxamine (antidepressants) moderately inhibit the action of cyp2c19 in the catalysis of allicin. Omeprazole 20mg daily metabolism may be reduced by allicin in people with CYP2C19*1/CYP2C191, *2 and *3. It may increase the effects of anticoagulants (example warfarin) and aspirin in the body.
Interactions with plants/foods: when in long use with Ginseng and Yohimbe extracts observe for bleeding spots. This is detected in the prothrombin/bleeding time. Allicin as an antioxidant in garlic may increase the effect of liver damage when taken with alcohol. Don’t take alcohol when taking DAPROF HYPERTONE.
