Garlic. The mere mention of the name revives memories grandma’s and mama’s kitchens. Truth is garlic is one of the best health foods available.
Most people associate bad odor with garlic. Here’s a little “factoid” for you – aged garlic reduces body odor.
History shows that garlic has been used since 1500 B.C. Ancient cultures valued its medicinal properties, not just the flavor.
Garlic is beneficial for/as:
- Reducing cholesterol and high blood pressure
- Increase circulation and energy
- Preventing blood clots
- Antibiotic, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-parasitic, antifungal, anti-arthritis
- Immune booster
- Antioxidant and detoxifier
- Increases memory and protects nervous system
These are just a few garlic benefits. The list goes on and on.
Not all garlic supplements are created equal. Numerous odorless garlic products are available but preserving the integrity of natural garlic and eliminating the odor is not that simple. Aged garlic extract is up to 300% more potent than oil-only kind.
Allicin is widely considered to be one of the most significant biologically active constituents of garlic. Ajoene in garlic appears to lower the risk of harmful blood clotting. Scientific research reveals that it is not a single compound responsible for garlic’s super food status but the garlic as a whole.
During the aging process the concentrated, active compounds are mellowed and the harsh, irritating, odorous compounds are converted to dozens of valuable, stable, safe and odorless ones. Natural aged garlic contains all the nutritional benefits and the most concentrated food you can take.
For someone needing to eliminate body odor and cleanse the arteries, Aged Garlic Extract, may be an excellent choice. There are some brands that have combination formulas for convenience. If you already take a garlic supplement you may consider trying a combination. For those not using garlic it is easy to include.
