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.

  • Excellent product

    star

    I have been using this for about one year. In the past when I was not taking this tablet I would become sick
    every 3 months but now I feel good and do not have to miss work. I have recommended the product to my
    friends.

    I have been taking Go Vir-Defence for 4 years now and I have my husband and my daughter on Go -Vir-Defence as well. I take it all year round. I live in Sydney and travel back home to NZ regularly and Go Vir-Defence makes a huge difference with my health. At 67 years I need all the help I can get. Plus you can order it from Australia though Healthpost and no other website compares in price.

  • Worth every penny..

    Took these overseas with us and made sure we took one tablet each day. Everyone on our tour came down with a dreadful cold and cough (including tour guide and the driver!) but hubby and I cruised through illness free. I'm forever thankful for that as it was our first foray overseas.
