Mar 09, 2018
Garlic seed( Allium sativum L.) is a perennial herbaceous bulbous plant of the lily family with flat linear leaves with small flowers collected in umbrellas. The curative properties of this plant were known to the Sumerians, which for about 2300 years BC.began to be used to relieve heat, treat tumors and poisoning. The ancient Egyptians widely used it to prevent and treat infectious diseases in slaves engaged in building pyramids. Legionnaires and gladiators of ancient Rome actively used it to increase strength in combat campaigns and gladiatorial battles, and Claudius Galen, using garlic in his balm, sought the full recovery of wounded gladiators.
Avicenna considered it a remedy for all diseases. Western medicine also drew attention to the medicinal properties of garlic. But a truly scientific study of the healing properties of garlic began only in the seventies of this century.
The name of garlic reflects all the taste characteristics: "burning", sharp. The characteristic sharp taste and strong smell caused by essential oil, determine the food use of garlic. In addition to the essential oil consisting of sulfur compounds, the garlic contains nitrogenous substances, glycoside, alliin, phytosterols, metal salts, vitamins C( 10 mg%), B, B, PP, E, A, a multitude of trace elements, of which the most important for the bodyzinc, selenium, germanium. And the most powerful components are found not in fresh, but kept in the cold garlic. On the useful properties of garlic, see here.
Healing properties of garlic are known to man since ancient times. Garlic was tried to treat all known diseases - and it must be said that in quite a large percentage of cases this brought a certain result.
Say, if you do not have a completely healthy heart, any doctor will prescribe medications containing potassium, vascular disorders - vitamin-mineral complexes, catarrhal diseases, anemia - iron.
It is enough to return to the previous section to see: all these substances are contained in garlic.
But we should start with another: garlic is the strongest disinfectant that affects viruses, carriers of diseases, no matter how it gets into the body. Moreover, the disinfecting effect of sulfides( sulfur compounds) is enhanced by the presence in garlic of allicin, which, as already mentioned, can be considered a rather strong antibiotic.
Among the other beneficial effects of garlic on the human body, the following should be mentioned first:
Already in ancient manuscripts we find recommendations to consume garlic in heavy physical exertion and for the speedy recovery of health after a serious illness.
Simultaneously, garlic positively affects the composition of blood and the state of blood vessels, saturates vitamins and salts of rare metals, that is, the action is complex.
Perhaps, for this reason, pediatricians recommend garlic preparations for weakened children who suffer from dysbacteriosis. In children, by the way, very often gastrointestinal diseases are cured with garlic alone.

Recall that cholesterol plaques in atherosclerosis are the main reason for narrowing the lumen of blood vessels and serious blood flow disorders that can eventually lead to such serious diseases as myocardial infarction, stroke, etc.
