What separates healthy stem cells from cancer stem cells?
Alliin and Alliinase mechanizm: When Alliin encounters the Alliinase, the resulting reaction turns the normally inert alliin molecules into lethal allicin molecules, which penetrate and kill the tumor cells. Due to the precise delivery system, neighboring, healthy cells remain intact.
