- Garlic, Allium Sativum, has an amazing history dating back 5000 years.
- There is much historical evidence that garlic was revered by the Egyptian’s who gave it to the slaves who were building the pyramid to maintain their strength. It is documented in ancient Chinese texts dating 4000 years ago. The Romans gave it to their soldiers.
- There is no other plant in history that has as many applications as this powerful, pungent plant... More Info
The use of garlic whether as a food, spice or medicine has more than tripled since the 1990’s. Based on a report from the Department of Agriculture in 1989 the average person consumed 1 pound of garlic compared to 3.1 pounds per person in 1999.
Garlic today is rated as only second to Echinacea in sales worldwide for its medicinal properties.
Garlic is also one of the most
Garlic as a fresh food is well known for its powerful sulfur odor but, there is so much more to this awesome bulb then just its pungent smell. Garlic contains 0.1-0.36% volatile oils which based on much research is responsible for many of the powerful properties of garlic. It is known to have about 33 sulfur compounds, 17 amino acids as well as minerals and enzymes.
Of all the foods in the allium family, garlic has by far the highest concentration of these sulfur compounds. Allicin is known to be one of the more biologically active compounds in garlic which was first isolated and studied in the 1940’s to support the body’s ability to ward off viruses, bacteria, fungi
Interestingly more recent studies have shown some very different facts about garlic and why using the fresh stuff may not be the only way to get the benefits. While allicin has been thought to be a key player in the medicinal properties of garlic, a study did show that it’s ability to work as a single agent is not as powerful as once was thought. A study was done where people consumed 10 cloves of garlic daily. When blood was taken between one to twenty-four hours later, there was little or no detectable sign of allicin in the blood or urine. In fact, the allicin was shown to be almost completely metabolized by the liver. The conclusion that was drawn from this study is that even if the allicin could make it to the bloodstream and delivered throughout the body, it is most likely going to convert into other compounds causing them to lose the ability to carry oxygen.
