Garlic Info

Garlic is the common name of the plant Allium sativa, closely related to onions, shallots, leeks and chives. Originally from central Asia and with a history dating back 6000 years, its culinary and medicinal use spread to the ancient cultures clustered around the Mediterranean, such as Egypt and Greece, centuries ago.

With a distinctive pungent odour due to its many sulphur compounds, garlic has a reputation as ‘nature’s antibiotic’ and is a highly effective broad spectrum anti-microbial against bacteria, viruses, worms and fungi.

Garlic Benefits

Garlic was used by the ancients to treat intestinal, digestive, respiratory and low energy complaints. Modern research confirms its significant immune boosting and cardio-protective effects. With high concentrations of the trace mineral selenium, garlic is also a potent antioxidant.

Specifically, garlic reduces the risk of blood clots by inhibiting platelet aggregation in arteries and thinning the blood, increasing its flow. It helps the body maintain normal cholesterol levels and regulate blood pressure.

Garlic’s strong immune protective action helps control most microbial outbreaks including colds, flu, ENT infections, genital herpes, candidiasis and tinia. Studies also indicate an anti-neoplastic effect with garlic intake contributing to decreased risk of some cancers.

Garlic Side Effects

Garlic’s pungent smell can be obvious on the breath, skin and sweat when consumed in large amounts. Parsley is nature’s answer to ‘garlic breath’, neutralising the smell when they are consumed together. Consuming large amounts can cause gastrointestinal upsets. Raw garlic applied topically has caused allergic dermatitis, burning and blisters in some reported cases. Caution is needed if taking anticoagulant medication because of garlic’s anti-clotting action. Culinary quantities are safe to consume and supplements taken as directed are also safe.

    Like many people I used to get an upper respiratory tract infection at least once every year and they were getting progressively more severe becoming deep set bronchial infections. I have bee taking this supplement for several years now and have not had an URT since I started. I am really happy with it and have recommended it to many friends.

    I have been taking these capsules for a wee while now and being at the Dr just a few days ago she told me I have the blood pressure of an 18 yr old (am 65), My sister had been taking these capsules for hopefully bringing down her high blood pressure and cholesterol and suggested I should try them. I know that her blood pressure has dropped considerably to what it was. If there has been this much improvement in such a short time for us both then this product is well worth taking.

    I normally suffer really bad sinus where I usually have a persistent cough and blocked nose but since taking a tablet a day I have had no sinus especially at this time of year. I also did not catch any colds off my kids when they had them. A real winning product.
