The history of human consumption of garlic goes back over 7,000 years. It is known for its pungent odor and its ability to add delicious flavor to many culinary dishes.
Garlic is native to Central Asia was used as a food flavoring staple in the Mediterranean, Europe, Africa and Asia for centuries before coming to the united States. Garlic has also been used in spiritual ceremonies as it is believed to ward off evil spirits.

There is a legend that garlic cured the beloved Yellow Emperor, Huang-ti, of an accidental poisoning. With its antimicrobial/antibacterial powers, garlic has been used by healers world-wide to treat infections and cleanse the body of pathogens.
But, while garlic's amazing healing properties were well-known by ancients, only recently has research begun to show that the ancients were right! Garlic has been proven to help prevent cardiovascular disease by reducing high blood pressure, relaxing the arteries, and reduce cholesterol.
Allicin, the compound in garlic that gives it that pungent taste and smell, is the healing force behind garlic. Because allicin is released when garlic is crushed, the very best way to make use of those awesome healing powers is through eating it.
