Not only is Allium sativum, commonly known as garlic, one of the world's favorite and most widely used culinary herbs, but it is also a potent anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory agent. Garlic contains a strong antioxidant compound called "allicin" and can aid the immune system in fighting off bacterial and fungal infections, and ward off cardiovascular disease by relaxing vascular smooth muscle, dilating blood vessels, lowering blood pressure, and reducing inflammation and cholesterol. BioPure is now offering certified organic freeze-dried garlic in convenient capsules, each one providing a stable and generous 5.4 mg of allicin. This is twice the amount of bioactives in our old formula, and you get more capsules per bottle, at less cost per serving. Another idea: give your salad dressing or smoothie a super immunity boost by adding a half teaspoon of BioPure's loose freeze-dried powdered garlic. A liquid option of raw organic garlic in electrolyte solution is also available.
