It's no exaggeration to say that Garlic has been revered by almost every major civilisation in world history. The Babylonians, Greeks, Chinese and Romans all embraced this pungent smelling bulb for stronger immune system and superior cardiovascular health. Now you can too, with this handy daily capsule of Whole Garlic.
Seen by many as the essential culinary ingredient, Garlic has played a major role in the diet and therapies of almost every generation before us. Coming from the onion family, Allium sativum is a herb shrouded in history, mystery and even folklore.
Some of the first recorded use of Garlic was actually during the time of the Pharaohs, when it was given to the slaves building the pyramids to give them strength, stamina, longevity and even courage as they constructed those vast, towering monuments.There are still etchings on the pyramids that can be found, to this day, which testify to the prolific use of garlic as a means to protect the slave's ongoing health.
As testament to their belief in Garlic as people, Egyptian soldiers used the plant to boost their immune systems in times of war.
Perhaps the most famous and ultimately telling - use of Garlic is, to ward off those most menacing of night-dwellers; vampires. And while it might seem trite to highlight what is obviously a mythical use, it is the belief system surrounding that mythology which really tells us the most about Garlic. Seen as a protectorate from diseases (especially of the blood), Garlic has been used to prevent gangrene, ward off the plague and even mooted as a natural antiseptic.
Today Garlic has an altogether more sensible use. Believed to be helpful in preventing heart disease, it is a great way to bolster your body's immune system and see you through to a general body healthier lifestyle.
