Why Garlic is so good for youSometimes traditional practices are still the best. Garlic has been used since the beginning of recorded history, and it’s one of the earliest documented examples of plants used to support health. Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, China and India all used garlic for its medicinal properties.

Today, garlic is used to support circulation and cardiovascular health. Garlic has wide-ranging benefits that include supporting healthy circulation and blood pressure, maintaining cholesterol levels already within a normal range, providing antioxidant protection, and enhancing immune system function.

To get the health benefits of garlic, the general recommendation is to eat at least one whole clove of garlic per day. But there’s nothing wrong with eating more like two to twelve cloves daily. Of course, the best source is always diet, and I encourage you to try to get your intake through whole food sources. In everyday cooking, garlic is an easy addition. I add fresh garlic to sauces, sautés, fish, stir-frys and a number of other dishes.

But the fact is that many of us don’t have time to cook every day. When I travel, it’s especially difficult to make sure I’m getting plenty of garlic in my diet. That’s why I recommend Mega Garlic Plus, since each tablet supplies the powerful benefits of one whole garlic clove.*

Mega Garlic Plus supports healthy circulation and heart health, and it’s designed to release active ingredients once through the stomach for full absorption.* It’s also enteric-coated for absorption where needed and provides antioxidant protection for the body.* And the coating helps reduce odor, since garlic can cause bad breath.

While our ancestors didn’t have the scientific advancements of today, they did recognize the powerful health benefits of garlic. They knew that eating garlic is an important part of supporting heart health and total wellness. Today, we are lucky enough to have products to help ensure we’re getting the benefits of garlic—even if we don’t have time to eat it every day.

How do you make sure to get plenty of garlic in your diet?
