Garlic is most well known for its uses in cooking. But many have begun to realize that the popular plant could have some beneficial medicinal uses as well. It's in the bulb of the plant where the medicine for garlic supplements‚ like Progressive Labs'‚ are derived from.
The main chemical in garlic is called allicin‚ an organic compound that contains sulfur. Allicin is responsible for garlic's distinct smell and taste‚ which is actually a defense mechanism against predators. Raw garlic‚ like the kind found in Progressive Labs' garlic supplements‚ also contain many additional nutrients such as essential B vitamins (thiamine‚ riboflavin‚ niacin‚ folate)‚ as well as some integral minerals like calcium‚ iron‚ magnesium‚ phosphorus‚ potassium‚ sodium‚ and zinc. Garlic is also believed to have a high vitamin C content.
Of all the conditions that garlic (and garlic supplements) may treat‚ those relating to cardiovascular health‚ like high blood pressure and high cholesterol seem to be the most prominent. Some studies have suggested that garlic may even slow the progression of atherosclerosis‚ the hardening of arteries. Some studies and reports have also put forth the possibility that allicin might inhibit platelet aggregation‚ the clotting of blood.
Garlic supplements could also help support a healthy immune system‚ stave off symptoms of stress and fatigue‚ and promote healthy liver function. Garlic has also been used to alleviate certain symptoms like coughs‚ fever‚ stomach aches‚ congestion‚ and more. Some people apply garlic oil topically to treat certain fungal infections and warts.
Progressive Labs' Garlic Supplement features garlic bulb that has been completely dried. Even in this dried state‚ the garlic supplement will still contain the essential vitamins and minerals it had before.
Progressive Labs has been a family owned manufacturer and distributor of nutritional supplements for 40 years. Progressive Labs has supplied over 25‚000 customers with professional grade vitamins‚ herbals‚ and dietary supplements.
