"Garlic is also known as the Stinking Rose" and has been used as food and medicine for thousands of years. The pungent odor or term "stinking" comes from the sulfur compound, allicin which is considered the most active ingredient in garlic.

BioGarlic® is a powerful garlic supplement that contains a high level of allicin, the most active ingredient in garlic. Also, it contains an array of other nutrients such as; magnesium, selenium, germanium and sulfur compounds. According to studies, garlic has been shown to have antibacterial and antiviral properties and the ability to enhance the immune factors in the body known as macrophages and T-lymphocytes, which are cells that strengthen the immune system. Garlic has been shown to reduce candida yeast infections within the intestines. It also naturally detoxifies the liver, which is important for cleansing the body of impurities and toxic materials that can build up and suppress the immune system. By taking BioGarlic® you can support the immune fortress in your own body.
