Allium sativum

by Jill Rosemary Davies

Garlic is known for its delicious flavours in cooking and lineage for healing worldwide.  Its familiar smell derives from its sulphur constituents which also gives it its medicinal properties, (which if crushed release allicin and then diallyl disulfide).  Garlic juice was used in World War I for soaked bandages before the presence of anti-biotics.  Nowadays it is used for overall immunity enhancement, digestive help, anti-fungal support, for lung support to include bronchitis, pneumonia and more.  It can also help more diverse issues like adrenal gland support, as it increases monomine oxidase enzymes in the adrenal glands.  It makes fascinating reading and explores the history and medicinal properties of this household plant.
