Yes, no doubt, it is the garlic, the natural medical chest ever available in the Pharmacy of Mother Nature! Dating back to millions of years, garlic is being studied in thousands of laboratories even today with great expectations of finding an unfailing elixir for most of our diseases!

An unfailing companion of health

Garlic is a poor man's unfailing asset of health. The benefits of garlic in treating various diseases are really wonderful. Garlic contains stimulating and pain relieving properties. We use garlic in India as an ever ready medicine for every disease. It is a natural antibiotic and builds up immunization power in our body to resist any disease.

A magic medicine during the Second World War

Garlic was found to have excellent powers of curing and it was used profusely during the Second World War for various diseases. As a result of using it, in 1942, it was discovered that allicin, a strong smelling element, contained in the garlic, has a lot of anti bacterial properties. Even today garlic is the current focus of many studies to find out the possibilities of treating various bacterial and viral infections, including cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

Healthy builder of metabolism

Recent studies have found out the ability of garlic for promoting metabolism. Garlic contains a substance called scordine, which is effective for increasing stamina for helping our body recover from fatigue and for promoting metabolism. It also contains a great deal of many other nutrients like proteins, minerals, fats and even amino acids that play essential part in building up metabolism.

Antibacterial weapon

Garlic has the antibacterial and antiviral properties which have been established by recent laboratory findings. Even in the cases of epidemics like small pox, garlic was applied in Europe with great success.

Antiseptic properties

Garlic was used as an antiseptic during wars especially during the Second World War. It was widely used to control suppuration in wounds caused in wars. It was also externally applied to disperse hard swellings. Garlic is also known to be a very powerful insect repellant, especially for biting insects like mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and chiggers.

A fighter against diseases

Flu and cold

Garlic is very effective for treating cold and flu as it has the diuretic properties which encourage expulsion of fluids from the body. It can also cure flu caused by infection. It is stated that during an outbreak of infectious fever in London, early last century, the French priests used garlic and escaped from the complications of the disease.


Syrup of Garlic has been very effective for treating asthma, chronic bronchitis, coughs, hoarseness, and difficulty in breathing. It acts as an expectorant and helps break up nasal and chest congestion enabling good breathing.

Ear ache

Applying warm garlic juice with oil into the affected ear can relieve ear ache. A mixture made with oil and the boiled bulb can also be applied into the ear.

Controller of cholesterol

Garlic has the wonderful ability to reduce elevated serum cholesterol levels since it reduces the tendency of blood platelets building up clots that can block arteries. In this way it can control high blood cholesterol and help to keep cholesterol in healthy balance.

An elixir for solving impotence

It may be surprising fact that it was used for enhancing male sexual strength. It was the handy cure for impotence profusely used by the Babylonians, Greeks, Egyptians, Romans, Indians and Chinese. It was also known as the aphrodisiac which can improve blood circulation significantly. Now, it has been found out that an enzyme called nitric oxide synthase is primarily responsible for the mechanism of erection in male. Recent studies have shown that garlic in certain forms can stimulate the production of the above nitric oxide synthase, especially in individuals who have low level this enzyme.

Even against cancer

Garlic has proved to be a promising ally in the fighting even against cancer. It helps the body in neutralizing potent carcinogens. Researchers have found out that garlic does this by using allicin to interrupt the toxic effects of cancer causing substances while promoting the immune cells of ones body in destroying them. Recent studies have shown that garlic works as an anti carcinogen in both prevention and treatment of cancer.

Health benefits associated with garlic are innumerable. From ancient days, it has been a great boon to humanity and its successful journey still goes on showing new vistas of cure and healthy life!
