Garlic (allium sativum) is one of the world's best and oldest herbs for cooking and traditional medicinal use. A close relative of the onion, shallot and leek, garlic is native to Asia but now grows worldwide. It was used by ancient civilizations for health and wellness and was recorded in Indian, Roman, Greek and Chinese medical texts. It was even found buried in pyramids and temples. Although these civilizations did not come into contact with one another, their use of garlic is amazingly similar. Even as recent as WWI and WWII, garlic was regularly used on the battlefield for wounds. Garlic also has a spiritual and folklore reputation. Most of us are familiar with the tradition of wearing garlic to ward off vampires, but garlic hung from window or rubbed on chimneys served the same purpose. In Hinduism, garlic was believed to warm the body, while Buddhist tradition cautions that garlic's stimulating potential may actually be detrimental to quiet meditation. ¿
Modern science discovers the power of garlic as far as modern health benefits, science has now isolated a component within garlic, called allicin, that gives this herb its power. Interestingly, allicin isn't found in fresh garlic, but is created when the garlic clove's defense mechanism is triggered by potentially harmful substances. ¿
Since the first discovery of allicin in 1944, further meta-analysis of this surprisingly complex herb, shows garlic delivers naturally occurring trace amounts of various nutrients. This includes B vitamins such as thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and folate along with vitamin C. Minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and more. Plus 33 sulfur compounds and 17 amino acids... all thought to help support a strong immune system function. Cholesterol Support: Recent research suggests garlic has great potential for the heart, specifically in helping to maintain cholesterol levels already in the normal range. This is especially true when taken for longer periods of time. Due to these findings, garlic oil supplements or garlic oil softgels are commonly found today. Problem is, its pungent aroma!
All the heart benefits, none of the "garlic breath." Anyone who enjoys garlic bread or garlic seasoned pasta knows about "garlic breath." There's a reason why garlic has been called "the stinking rose." If the aroma seems to emanate from your pores, it is! Garlic contains a large number of sulfur compounds which cannot be digested in the usual manner, but instead are carried into the lungs and skin where they are excreted. That's why the garlic smell can linger for a day or longer. But all that's changed with our odorless garlic supplement. Each softgel delivers 500 mg. of high-quality garlic, the equivalent of 500 mg. of garlic bulb, with no tell-tale aroma!
