One of the most ancient testimonials about garlic as a medicine was found in the Ebers Papyrus dating back to the 15th century BC. This is an Egyptian archeological artifact listing 22 medicines that include garlic. Other ancient writings from Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, India, China, and Phoenicia reveal that garlic has had an important place in people’s knowledge of medicine, herbs, and spices in old times.
Most medical benefits related to garlic are found in more than 100 chemical elements containing sulfur. When the garlic cloves are being squashed or chewed one of these elements – alanine – transforms into allicin which is a chemical element responsible for the odor and pointed as one of the main healthy components. Garlic active ingredients (allicin and alanine) show anti-contagious effects against bacterial and fungal infections. Analyses prove that in nations consuming high quantities of garlic the risk of cancer diseases is lower.
