Wink Garlic Uses and Benefits

Garlic has been used worldwide throughout history. It is well respected and recognized as the most anti-microbial plant available, known for its action on bacteria, viruses, and alimentary parasites. It combines well with echinacea for microbial infections.



Volatile oil is the effective agent of Garlic that is largely excreted via the lungs. It is therefore valuable when used for infections such as chronic bronchitis, recurrent colds, influenza and other respiratory problems. It's also a popular treatment for whooping cough and bronchial asthma.

Garlic is extremely beneficial for infectious conditions related to both the digestive and respiratory systems. To aid digestion, it supports the development of natural flora, while also killing pathogenic organisms. Forms that can be used are fresh, dried, freeze-dried, oils or extracts.

This herb is used by many to lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels. It improves the general condition of the cardio-vascular system. It has been helpful to cancer patients in easing the side-effects of chemotherapy such as fatigue and lack of appetite. It also aids in the healing of heart and intestinal damage resulting from chemo agents.

Externally, when used as a poultice, it can be applied to the spinal column and chest of infants suffering from pneumonia. It can also be applied to the skin for treatment of ringworm.

Extracts of garlic as found in products like Allemed can cure MRSA infections.
I once talked with a woman who cured her MRSA infection by eating about 6 raw cloves of garlic a day. It took several months. I would think that the Allimed is easier to take but she said she did it because she had no money for Allimed.

Allicin is the active ingredient that combats infection. Garlic must be eated raw to optain this particular benefit, except for especially processed garlic in products like Allimed, designed to preserve the allicin in an active form. Most garlic products you purchase in capsule do not have active allicin and therefor are not effective in active infections

Most people benefit by the complex sulfur compounds found in garlic to boost the immune sytem, lower blood pressure and other effects typical to garlic... it is also the source of garlic bad breath.

The variations in garlic are determined by the genetic type of garlic that is grown. There are very hot garlics and very mild garlics. Garlics developed to grow in cold climate and in warm climate. There are variations in size, color, number of cloves, weather tolerance and how hot the cloves are...all based on its genetic strain.

I would not say that garlic grown in china is bad. That would have to be proven that they do something weird in the agricultural or processing end. Garlic is pretty easy to grow with simple fertilizers.

You cannot compare China garlic to USA organic garlic unless you are comparing the same type of seed.

All I am saying is grocery store garlic is not as good as whole foods garlic. Big difference.
