Composition of Garlic
The compound known as allicin is found in garlic. Allicin enters the body from the digestive tract and travels all over the body, where it exerts its potent biological effects. Garlic also contains Manganese, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Selenium and decent amounts of calcium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, iron and vitamin B1.
Garlic also contains trace amounts of various other nutrients. In fact, it contains a little bit of almost everything we need.
We now know that most of the health effects are caused by one of the sulphur compounds formed when a garlic clove is chopped, crushed or chewed. Check with a qualified practitioner for advice about taking herbs containing sulphur and iodine which might cause an allergic reaction in some people.

Research on garlic’s preventive and therapeutic benefits continues to grow. It now appears that garlic can keep levels of the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacterium in check. An overgrowth of the H. pylori bacterium can contribute to the development of stomach ulcers.
Liver and Gallbladder
Garlic can reduce the incidence of cholesterol gallstones and helped shrink existing gallstones. Garlic appears to work by reducing the concentration of cholesterol in bile. Garlic helps reduce cholesterol gall stone formation.
Probably the most amazing characteristic of garlic is that it’s been shown to literally reverse early heart disease by reversing plaque buildup in arteries. Aged Garlic can help slow the progression of atherosclerosis and reverse the early stages of heart disease.
Garlic works as a remedy for kidney and bladder issues because of its antimicrobial properties. Garlic contains allicin, which has been proven to act as a broad-spectrum anti-bacterial agent. This means that ingestion of garlic can help resolve bacterial infections in the kidneys and the bladder. Its infection-fighting properties have been studied by the scientific community, who have confirmed its effectiveness.
Researchers have found that ‘allicin’, a compound found in garlic can kill bacteria that triggers life threatening lung infections. Garlic is also extremely useful in cases of respiratory diseases. Namely, it is truly amazing for preventing and curing , pneumonia, catarrhs, bronchitis, chronic bronchial catarrhs, lung congestion, asthma, and whooping cough.
We have used the Hayflick system of cellular ageing in culture in order to test garlic for its anti-ageing effects on long-term growth characteristics, morphology and macromolecular synthesis of human skin fibroblasts. Our results show that an addition of garlic extract into the normal cell culture medium can support serial subculturing and that this treatment has some youth-preserving, anti-ageing and beneficial effects on human fibroblasts in terms of maximum proliferative capacity and morphological characteristics.See product…..
Garlic is widely used by patients for its blood pressure lowering effects. Researchers of a review study published in 2008 in BMC Cardiovascular Disorders concluded that the higher the starting blood pressure, the greater the reduction in the blood pressure after treatment with garlic. All of the beneficial effects of garlic are attributed to its sulfur-containing compounds: allicin, diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulfide, and others.
Garlic lowers the clotting properties of blood.. Allicin has been well documented to inhibit the formation of cholesterol in several laboratory studies. The main reason high cholesterol poses a threat to the human body is the close relation it has to heart health.
Garlic contains chemicals that aid in destroying bacteria, fungal or virus infections. It is widely used to clear this bacterial infection by killing it and thus treats the infection. Garlic is a natural antibiotic, which can help to kill the bad bacteria as well as protect the good bacteria. It is excellent for treating sinus infection and its symptoms.

A team of University of Missouri researchers has discovered that another nutrient in garlic offers the brain protection against aging and disease. The finding provides more understanding of how garlic may prevent age-related neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Garlic contains antioxidants that protect against cell damage and ageing. Garlic has been shown to enhance memory function. Evidence also shows that garlic administration affects brain serotonin levels.
