Garlic is considered by some to be the world's most healing food. Boasting more than 100 sulfur compounds, the unmistakable smell and flavor of garlic is due to a phytonutrient called allicin.
The "stinking rose" is a natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent and has been used as far back as the time of Hippocrates as a medicine.
Along with allicin, garlic also delivers phytonutrients including allicin, ajoene and sulfides.
