Since the beginning of recorded history, garlic has been one of the number one natural remedy choices for preventing and treating illnesses. Revered throughout the ages and many cultures for its healing properties, garlic is an antimicrobial powerhouse that makes a great natural medicine. Scientific study upon scientific study have shown that garlic reduces inflammation; fights bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites; helps keep the cardiovascular system healthy; and even kills cancer cells.
Garlic is one of the number one plants to use to treat infections too, often a superior natural antibiotic to pharmaceuticals, due to its complexity. Garlic naturally contains 33 sulfur compounds, 17 amino acids, and multiple other components, with many of its therapeutic benefits coming from a sulfur compound called allicin. Raw garlic doesn't contain allicin, but rather two ingredients that create it when they come in contact: alliin, a sulfur-rich amino acid, and alliinase, a protein-based enzyme.
These two compounds are physically separated in the whole clove, but when garlic is crushed, minced, or otherwise broken, the physical barrier is removed and the alliinase enzyme begins to convert alliin into allicin. Allicin is the compound that gives garlic its antimicrobial properties because it has the ability to inhibit RNA synthesis and DNA polymerases. It disrupts the bacterium’s entire enzyme system responsible for cell replication. Since bacteria can’t overcome the complicated barrier produced by allicin, they can’t develop resistance to it.
In contrast, pharmaceutical antibiotics generally aim to disrupt one metabolic pathway—a problem bacteria can usually overcome with a single gene mutation. Garlic has also been shown to be effective against viruses, fungi, and parasites. According to Stephen Buhner, an expert in herbal antibiotics, “If only one herb could be used to combat an epidemic spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, garlic would be it.”
To avoid the side effects and hassle of eating raw garlic use Allimed with allicin, the heart of garlic for prevention and treatment of what ails you.
