Garlic

Garlic (Allium Sativum) has been used for thousands of years as an important part of traditional medicine. The garlic bulb is the part of the plant which is used medically.

Garlic provides support to the cardiovascular system and the circulatory system, and also provides support for healthy blood lipid levels. Garlic is also a strong antioxidant which helps reduce free radical cellular damage in the body and provides support to the immune system.

Garlic contains a sulphur product called allicin which produces other sulphur compounds ( allyl sulphides and vinyldithins.) Aged garlic products lack allicin, but their activity is thought to be due to the presence of S-allylcysteine.

Garlic is useful to provide valuable support for the circulatory system, the immune system, the digestive system, and also supports the liver.

If you are taking anticoagulant medications, including warfarin or aspirin,clopididrel, or others,antihypertensives,insulin, oral hypoglycaemics,you should check with Doctor before taking Garlic.
