Product Information

Let’s start with Garlic. Yes, it may ward off vampires and werewolves, but its also chock-full of many important vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Allium sativum, garlic’s botanical name, contains 33 sulfur compounds (including allicin, the compound responsible for garlic’s pungent odor) and 17 amino acids.

Many studies, including some from Pennsylvania State University, Tufts University School of Medicine and University of Alabama at Birmingham, offer compelling evidence that garlic helps support cardiovascular health. Garlic’s sulfur compounds have positive effect on the liver through supporting healthy balance of cholesterol.

Lastly, garlic is also a good all-around crusader for a healthy immune system. Dr. David W. Kraus of the University of Alabama noted recently in The New York Times, “People have known garlic was important and has health benefits for centuries. Even the Greeks would feed garlic to their athletes before they competed in the Olympic games.”
