GARLIC: NEW RESEARCH PROVING ITS BENEFITS
At a recent international symposium that brought together some 200 delegates from around the globe, presentations covered studies on the health benefits of garlic in a range of fields, from liver injuries, cardiovascular diseases and memory to dental and pet care.
One study demonstrated that the common gum disease gingivitis could be effectively treated through the daily consumption of aged garlic extract, or AGE.
AGE, is made by aging and extracting compounds from garlic: aged for 20 months in ethanol.
While scientific research on the health benefits of garlic is relatively new, the use of garlic as an herbal medicine goes back at least 5,000 years.
