Origins of Garlic
The public's opinion on Garlic has varied dramatically over the years, ranging from being fit as a gift to the gods, to only being suitable for hogs. The bulb has been used for over 5,000 years, including as a food source, medicine, an aphrodisiac, money and magic potions. Garlic is grown on a plant native to Asia, known as Allium sativum. This plant is part of the Lily family and thrives in areas of high water content, such as riverbeds. The plant reaches half a metre in height and develops bulbous roots which are used in Garlic extract.
Benefits of Garlic
Scientific advances have allowed us to discover the health benefits of garlic due to its active ingredient, Allicin. Allicin is a compound that reduces inflammation and offers antioxidative benefits. Fresh Garlic contains alliin, an amino acid that interacts with an enzyme to form Allicin. Because of the Allicin in Garlic, the bulb contributes to normal immune function. Garlic also aids the maintenance of cardiovascular health by helping to sustain both normal cholesterol and homocysteine levels. The antioxidative properties of Garlic mean that Garlic contributes to the resistance against temporary stress, both cellular and emotionally when our immunity levels are affected.
