Garlic is a member of the onion family. Very low in fat, it provides an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. It’s high in thiamine (B1), pantothenic acid (B5), B6, calcium, manganese, iron, phosphorus and zinc.

Garlic has been thought to prevent the build-up of cholesterol, but to date, no studies on humans have actually proven this. It’s also regularly reported that it can prevent the common cold, but we don’t believe there’s been a convincing study to show that either. However, it has been shown to have an anti-bacterial affect and is used as a remedy for infections.

Other Garlic benefits are thought to include the enhanced absorption of thiamine (vitamin B1) which is thought to prevent cardiovascular and neurological diseases (or beriberi).
