Garlic is a popular herb not only for the kitchen but the medicine cabinet as well. A member of the onion family, this pungent herb is thought to strengthen the body’s defenses and promote healthy circulatory function. In addition, garlic has antioxidants which work to attack free radicals in the body. Experts also believe garlic offers cardiovascular benefits and may even help fight off illness such as colds and flu. The strong aroma of garlic is thanks to the powerful sulfide antioxidant called allicin.
The medicinal uses for garlic have been known since ancient Greek days when Olypmians preparing to compete chewed a clove of garlic to enhance their performance and endurance. Many people who want the health benefits of garlic go the capsule route rather than consuming large quantities of raw garlic. Taking garlic in capsule form is a great way to ensure you get the proper amount every day. Each Natures Sunshine garlic capsule contains 550 mg of garlic bulb.
