There is evidence of medicinal use as far back as 1,500BC in Ancient Egypt, Greece, India and China. History shows that Garlic was a method of payment and a staple part of the diet for workers building the pyramids. It was also used as food for soldiers in Greece and Rome as they believed it gave them strength.
Modern science has now dictated the real benefits and how these affect the body. The active ingredient is of Garlic is Allicin. Allicin is an organic sulphur based compound. The main property of Allicin is its anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal nature. This is incredibly beneficial to health as it regulates the pathogenic levels, between narrow limits within the body. This leads to promotion of immunity and balance of the healthy microbiota in the gut. In addition to this, Garlic is rich with antioxidant properties that lead to a decrease in cell damage and onset of disease.
The role of an antioxidant is complex, but it scavenges harmful particles called free radicals that attack tissue integrity via oxidation. There is also evidence to show the beneficial effects of Garlic on respiratory health, by regulating its function. Lastly, it has been linked with the therapeutic regulation of blood glucose concentration, promotion of insulin secretion and maintenance of healthy carbohydrate metabolism.
