Garlic has been used worldwide for thousands of years for nutrition and health. Nu-Health garlic oil contains true oil of garlic extracted from whole fresh garlic bulb. It is a convenient way to receive the benefits of garlic in concentrated form.
Garlic and its key constituents have been the subject of hundreds of scientific studies. As far back as the first century A.D., a Roman physician wrote of garlic's ability to "clear the arteries." In Europe, garlic has come to be seen as an all-around intervention for preventing atherosclerosis, the cause of heart disease and strokes. Garlic can lower total cholesterol levels. Garlic also appears to improve high blood pressure. Garlic preparations have been found to slow hardening of the arteries in animals, reducing the size of plaque deposits. Raw garlic can kill a wide variety of microorganisms by direct contact, including fungi, bacteria, and viruses. A study in 1999 found that a cream made from garlic was just as effective for fungal skin infections as the most commonly used drug.
