Garlic is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world. Affectionately called "the stinking rose" garlic dates back over 5000 years, is native to central Asia, and has long been a staple in the Mediterranean region. Worshipped by the ancient Egyptians and consumed by Roman soldiers going into battle, this pungent little bulb also packs numerous therapeutic benefits. Over the millennia garlic has become indispensable in many cultures for both its culinary and medicinal properties. More recently it has gained increased popularity as researchers continue to scientifically validate its numerous health benefits.

Also known as Allium sativum, a diet rich in garlic may help lessen the incidence of several types of cancer, including cancer of the stomach, colon, breast and cervical. Research is also demonstrating that garlic may lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, may be helpful in the prevention of free-radical damage and in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. It has also been used to fight infections, treat colds and rid the body of parasites. Simply put, garlic is a potent disease-fighting food.

As with most foods, consuming them the way nature intended is usually best. If you don’t like the taste of garlic but would like to enjoy all the health benefits it has to offer try a garlic supplement such as AIM Kyolic® Aged Garlic Extract™.
