- Plants of the genus Allium are known for their production of organosulfur compounds, which possess interesting biological and pharmacological properties. Among these, garlic is considered one of the most important herbal medicines, with widespread antimicrobial properties and immune boosting and anti-inflammatory effects (1). The chemistry of garlic is complex. It contains more than 2000 biologically active substances, including volatile, water-soluble and oil-soluble organosulfur compounds, along with essential oils, dietary fiber, sugars, flavonoids and pectin(2).
The Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD) of Health Canada has published a monograph recognizing the traditional use of garlic bulb in Herbal Medicine at 0.5-12 g/day to help relieve the symptoms associated with upper respiratory tract infections and catarrhal conditions, as well as to help reduce elevated blood lipid levels/hyperlipidemia and maintain cardiovascular health in adults(3). Additionally, the WHO Monograph on Allium sativum recognizes its use in the treatment of respiratory and urinary tract infections, ringworm, and rheumatic conditions. The herb is also recognized for its traditional use as a carminative for dyspepsia(4). Garlic bulb is a recognized source of antioxidants in the form of organosulfur compounds that help protect against the oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
