Garlic is a popular natural remedy for a wide array of conditions, including viral infections.
Garlic possesses remarkably effective powers not only to the digestive system but it may also help maintain normal cholesterol levels in the circulation, when part of a healthy low fat diet.
In a study in 23 adults with warts caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), applying garlic extract to affected areas twice daily eliminated the warts in all of them after 1–2 weeks.
Additionally, older test-tube studies note that garlic may have antiviral activity against influenza A and B, HIV, HSV-1, viral pneumonia, and rhinovirus, which causes the common cold. However, current research is lacking.
Animal and test-tube studies indicate that garlic enhances immune system response by stimulating protective immune cells, which may safeguard against viral infections.
Garlic has long been used to support a healthy respiratory system as well for the digestive system and as a natural insect repellent. The component responsible for many of garlic’s properties is allicin, which is a useful source of organic sulphur, but garlic also contains key vitamins and minerals which have powerful antioxidant properties.
Garlic Supplement contains natural garlic oil which provides a higher proportion of allicin than some supplements made from the dried garlic residue left once the oil is extracted. The potent garlic oil is combined with a nutritious base to create an easy to use powder that mixes and keeps well all year round.
