Garlic was already valued for its antibacterial properties in ancient times. For centuries, it was cultivated in central Asia, India and in China. Although in many countries nowadays it is used mainly as a spice, garlic has also become an important material in the manufacturing of natural food supplement products.
Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is a plant with one of the broadest ranges of activity on the human body. Its efficacy has been thoroughly researched and documented. The oldest records of garlic applications go back 3,000 years BC. Since then, garlic has been used for centuries as a spice and food preservative, but also as a remedy for infectious conditions and parasitic infections of the digestive tract. Modern scientific research has not only confirmed garlic’s disinfecting, bacteriostatic and anti-parasitic properties but has also proven garlic’s numerous other, previously unknown qualities. Of most significant among these is its comprehensive circulation improvement action.
