The medicinal powers of garlic have been used and celebrated around the world and throughout recorded history. Over the past few decades, scientific research has methodically validated garlic's traditional reputation, unravelling the mysteries of how garlic enhances human health.
Cardiovascular disease is associated with multiple factors such as high levels of cholesterol, excessive blood clotting, and high blood pressure. Numerous in vitro studies confirm garlic's ability to reduce these risk factors. These findings have also been confirmed in clinical trials. Garlic extract protects against atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular disorders by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, inhibiting platelet aggregation, improving circulation, and retarding progression of coronary-artery calcification.
Garlic extract can also modulate the immune system and help bring it back into balance when it has been depleted or overactive. Garlic is a potent, broad-spectrum antimicrobial that is can be effective against many bacterial and fungal infections including candida (Candida albicans) (candida).
Natural Factors GarlicRich is made from the whole bulb of garlic to ensure its synergistic complexity. The garlic is grown without pesticides and the bulbs are hand-picked and stored in cool temperatures away from light and air to preserve the enzymes and other compounds that make garlic so beneficial. The bulbs are gently processed without ethanol or other solvents. A processing method called EnviroSimplex, which ensures potency and protects precious actives, exceeds industry standards and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines.
The garlic in GarlicRich is concentrated 10:1. Each highly potent and odourless 500mg softgel equals eight cloves of whole garlic.
