Garlic - common in home remedies
Healthwell Garlic contains as much as 2% allicin, which is the active ingredient in garlic.
Garlic is a popular ingredient in most kitchens, but not just for its delicious and flavour-enhancing properties. The herb is traditionally a common ingredient in many home remedies, especially those that are usually taken to help with colds. For example, it is common to mix garlic cloves with honey and then take them together. The herb is also said to keep ticks at bay and is therefore extra popular to take during tick season.
What is garlic good for?
Garlic contains several important vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium, calcium and zinc. In addition, the herb has a high content of sulfur compounds, which is what is believed to be what gives garlic its many health benefits. The active substance allicin is one of these sulfur compounds.
In recent years, garlic has been popular to study in several different contexts. Among other things, there are several studies on the antiviral potential of garlic and its possible effect on the immune system (1, 2). The herb has also been highlighted in several studies and articles regarding cardiovascular health (3, 4). Allicin is also thought to have several antimicrobial properties (4). In addition, garlic has been studied as a repellent against ticks and a possible effect has been demonstrated (5). However, all studies show some differences in terms of results and certainty, and therefore more research is needed on the health effects of garlic to be able to say anything certain.
