There is an old adage, " An apple a day keeps the doctor away." But in light of modern research findings, that might be better revised to, " A clove a day keeps the doctor away."
The clove, of course is from the lowly garlic bulb, and a daily dose may well keep your visits to the doctor at a minimum. With a medical history spanning thousands of years, garlic's reputation is well known, so the question is no longer whether to take Garlic, but "how" to take garlic.
In the past, those desiring the health benefits of garlic merely cracked a clove from a bulb and ate it raw, giving notice to the world that you were healthy, if not socially desirable. These days you can get your garlic in a tablet or capsule with the promise of little or no garlic after odor. While many of the available supplements are very similar to garlic, retaining the valuable sulfur compounds and the allicin, many are not. Steam distilled oils can lose much of their efficacy, and aged garlic extracts are allicin-free.
Then there's the question of potency. Just how many capsules or tablets must we take a day to equal the magical amount of garlic in one whole clove? Some brands instruct us to take their tablets three times each day to get the recommended dosage, and with others, no amount will provide the allicin system inherent to raw garlic.
All of those factors can create quite a dilemma; unless you're taking Garlic Time from Arizona Natural Products. Garlic Time is the original One-A-Day, time released garlic supplement. Arizona Natural has applied over two decades of garlic expertise to bring you a simple to understand, simple to take odorless garlic product that concentrates nearly two grams (the magical "one clove") of raw garlic into a single tablet. Just one tablet in the morning slow releases odor controlled garlic so you can enjoy the benefits all day long. In fact, one Garlic Time is equal to between two and six of the other popular garlic products at a fraction of the cost.
If you know about the scientific evidence and want to include a garlic supplement in your diet, there is no better time.
