Garlic has been used for centuries for health and longevity in many different cultures. Its used for protection against infections- bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal infections. The enzyme allinase converts allin in garlic to allicin. Allicin has a natural antibiotic effect.
A whole clove of garlic is essential for getting all its active factors, some of which include allicin, methyl allytrisulfide and sulfur. Each of these plays an important role in the body. Methly allytrisulfide acts by dilating blood vessel walls and also thins the blood by inhibiting platelet aggregation. Sulfur, found in hemoglobin and other body tissues partly protects the body against antibiotic-resistant strains of staphylococcus, proteus and pseudomonas, etc. In a clove of organic garlic, there can be about 20mg of naturally occurring sulfur. Garlic is also very effective against microbes such as herpes and candida.
The goodness of Garlic provides general cardiovascular support, respiratory/ lung and immune support.
