I have been using Kyolic Garlic for probably 40 odd years, and swear by it. I really wish you would get Liquid Kyolic Garlic, gets straight into ones system. Have 1x wee bottle in fridge watered down 1third waterx 2thirds Liquid Kyolic, whenever I wake with nasal blockage, Tilt head back - 1x eye drop down each nostril, into the shower, steam loosens phlem, enables big 'snort' and spit down the drain. Sounds gross but it works. Meantime always have the capsules on hand.
