Garlic (Allium sativum) is a spice plant that is probably known to everyone and it is often referred to as a natural antibiotic. The sulfide compounds contained in the cloves (especially allicin) have a very strong antimicrobial activity – they fight bacteria and viruses, fungi and parasites. In addition, they have a beneficial effect on the lipid profile, prevent clotting and promote the regulation of blood pressure.
Preparations based on garlic are recommended primarily to people at high risk of cardiovascular disease, especially atherosclerosis. After consultation with a specialist, they can be used as a support in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia and hypertension. They will prove beneficial also in periods of reduced immunity and with the tendency to infections and colds.
Garlic is very popular and highly available, yet it is difficult to take full advantage of its pro-health potential. The biggest obstacle is its characteristic smell – not necessarily adored by everyone – that accompanies us many hours after eating the spice. A good solution is to use dietary supplements. In our offer, you will find a wide selection of garlic preparations that are free of its typical, sharp smell.
