A member of the same group of plants as the onion, Garlic has been discussed in history as early as the 15th century and studied by herbalists since the 16th century. Used medicinally for over 5000 years for various ailments, garlic has shown to be effective in the prevention and remedy of some of today's most fatal diseases. In 2004, cardiovascular diseases claimed 871,500 lives. 550,270 died from cancer. Garlic is a natural herb that nature has provided to protect and heal us from the illnesses and diseases that are responsible for taking many lives each year.

Garlic protects against and helps to heal the damage caused from cardiovascular disease by lowering bad cholesterol levels while also healing and protecting the arteries from dangerous cholesterol. As a natural blood thinner, Garlic protects against heart disease much like aspirin. The anti-clotting compounds in garlic also help to prevent clogged arteries by decreasing the tendency of blood to clot. Studies have also shown that Garlic aids in lowering blood pressure, a precursor to cardiovascular problems.

Scientific studies and the resulting evidence indicates that Garlic is effective in slowing and preventing the growth of cancerous cells. These studies show that Garlic may be helpful in the prevention and remediation of any cancer types within any area of the body but seems to be especially helpful with prostate and stomach cancers. When garlic is cut or crushed, the components alliin and alliinase are released and interact, releasing antioxidants. Antioxidants are a natural weapon, destroying free radicals that contribute to tumor growth. In addition, garlic is also a natural source of selenium, a cancer fighting mineral. The sulfur found in garlic also supports the bodies detoxification process, aiding in the elimination of carcinogenic chemicals.

Anti-inflammatory, Anti-viral, Anti-fungal, and Anti-bacterial Herb

As a natural anti-biotic, Garlic is the only known herb that can protect the body against poisons that are causing an infection while also killing the virus or bacteria that is actually causing the infection. The blood of a garlic eater alone is enough to kill off dangerous bacteria before an infection sets in. Garlic is one of only nine herbs that show anti-fungal properties and is especially effective against Candida and candidiasis. The sulfur rich components in garlic increases the activity of natural killer and T helper cells, stimulating the immune system and becoming a potent anti-inflammatory agent.

Considered a miracle food, garlic offers prevention and healing benefits to a wide variety of diseases ranging from the common cold to deadly diseases. In past decades, garlic was even used to treat the once common and seemingly returning disease of tuberculosis. Americans once commonly referred to Garlic as the 'Poor Man's Treacle'. Today, garlic is now being known for being nature's wonder drug. For hundreds of years, garlic herb has been performing medical miracles throughout the world.
