Often considered by some as a purely food-oriented herb, garlic has a generous history in medical Herbalism. Other than having its pungent taste and smell that some love and others hate, garlic is known for its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and detoxifying properties.
Found as far back as pre-medieval medical texts, there are recipes found where garlic has been used historically for serious maladies such as sepsis and other severe infections. Even the first female physician Hildegard von Bingen mentions its many uses in the 9th century. Garlic was widely used in ancient Sumer, and thus is considered to be one of the most ancient herbal medicines.
Whether you love garlic, or hate it, this medicinal herb is a pungent and thorough healer.

I love that you talked that medical Herbalism included garlic as one of the most important herbs. Last night, my sister told me she was planning to start her healthy journey. She asked if I had any idea what would be the best option to consider for choosing nutritional supplements. Thanks to this helpful article, I'll tell her she can try the dietary nutritional supplements laboratory as they can help with her journey.
