garlicA member of the onion family, garlic is high in Vitamin B6, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium and has been used throughout recorded history for both culinary and medicinal purposes. The Bible and the Talmud, Hippocrates, Galen, Pliny the Elder among others all mention the use of garlic for many conditions, including parasites, respiratory problems, poor digestion, and low energy.

In addition to preventing and fighting the common cold, garlic has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties and is alleged to help regulate blood sugar levels, prevent heart disease and stomach and colon cancers.   Garlic was used as an antiseptic to prevent gangrene during World War I and World War II  and early in the 20th century, it was sometimes used in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis or phthisis.
