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.

  • Doing the trick so far!

    star

    Started on these around the first week of June due to having a horrendous sinus infection leading to earache and almost complete deafness. I'm not really one for herbal supplements but I've been taking 1 tablet morning and night religiously and haven't had anything more than a few sniffles (I should add I have a 3 yr old who brings home germs from daycare), I'll keep final judgement till the cold season is over for this year but things are looking really good so far, I'd would recommend trying them to anyone with littlies who like to share their germs :)

  • Too easy

    star

    I love these garlic supplements for my kids - so small and easy for the kids to take them but still potent. Definitely keeps the sniffles away. Whenever my kids start to look like they are getting a cold I give them a few of these garlic pearls- my son says "oh I love these!" They really don't get sick often and I definitely think it's because they take these little gems regularly.

  • GREAT PREVENTATIVE

    star

    I love this product and recommend it to anyone. I have not had a cold or sniffle in the last 2-3 years (even though I've been through lots of stress!). At the first sign of anything 'snotty' I tell the kids to take it and usually gets rid of any symptoms very quickly.
