Garlic is odiferous, tasty, and medicinal. The first medical textbook known to have discussed the use of garlic in medicine was the Collection of Commentaries on the Classic of the Materia Medica (Ben Cao Zhing Zhi Ju), written over 1,500 years ago.
Garlic was used by the ancient Greeks and Romans for its health supporting benefits. As early as the 1800s there was scientific evidence that bacteria died when they came in contact with garlic and recent research shows that garlic can strengthen the immune system and kill illness causing viruses and bacteria.
Great, especially during cold and flu season!
