Health Benefits of Garlic

Enrich your life by adding garlic supplements

Garlic comes in many forms—including fresh cloves. Garlic is the bulb of Allium sativum and is a member of the onion family; it has been cultivated by humans for thousands of years, and wild garlic probably disappeared long ago. Pictured at left is a small sampling of garlic products available on the market, including, from top to bottom and according to the product labels: garlic oil capsules; a children’s multi-vitamin plus garlic; allicin-rich, odorless, concentrated garlic powder in capsules; organic, “wild,” odorless garlic powder capsules; enteric-coated, odorless garlic capsules; garlic oil capsules; and garlic powder sold in bulk at health-food stores.
