Abstract

When garlic extract containing 8 p..M of allicin was administered intragastrically to albino rats, a maximum of 0.4 ,....M In the intestine and 2.4 p.. M in caecum was detected aft« a period of 4 and 6 hr respectively. About 50 to 60% reduction in microltora was observed in intestine after 4 hr of administl1ltion, but no such change was observed in caecum even after 6 hr. However, a 5 fold decrease In mlcroftora was seen in caecum only at the end of 8 hr. The gradual decrease in allicin ronlent While passing through the gut is perhaps due to reducing agents in tbe gut, natuml instability of allicin, antagoni~-m by food materials and absorption in the intestine. Genemlly, tbe aerobes were more susceptible to allicin coocentration In the gut than the anaerobes.
