According to nutritionist David Wolfe, Garlic is one of the most powerful herb/food in the world. It contains impressive anti-viral/anti-bacterial properties and is powerful against candida and fungi. While synthetic anti-biotics effect friendly bacteria levels negatively, Garlic is found to be much safer and likely does not significantly effect them. It also is less likely to be resisted by pathogens, which often develop defenses against synthetic anti-biotics but not to natural alternatives like garlic. In short, Garlic is a great supplement for dealing with pathogens that are not effected by pharmacuitical anti-biotics.
Garlic also significantly improves overall immune function. In essence, it stimulates immunity by raising various immune factor effectiveness. For everyday type use, it is generally recommended to take aged garlic extracts, or odorless garlic supplements. This is because some of the less tonic aspects of garlic are either deactived or changed into a more appropriate type for daily use. Also, it does not carry the same odor aspect that raw garlic does. Still, for less than everyday use, raw garlic in small amounts mixed into food can provide great immune system protection and other benefits.
