Therapeutic properties of garlic.

Garlic is a food that can be considered nutraceutical because it has many health properties thanks to the substances it contains.
In particular it is a natural antibiotic thanks to allicin and other active ingredients. We can talk about natural antibiotic when we have a product containing substances that have the ability to fight the aggression of many microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. In nature we find several natural antibiotics and among these garlic is certainly among the first places for its effectiveness.
In fact garlic can be used in all those cases in which microorganisms produce inflammation and infection to the human body.
We can therefore think of garlic as a natural medicine to prevent infections in general and to combat many seasonal ailments such as coughs, colds and flu. Allicin is the substance that has this strong antibacterial and anti-infective power. In addition, the garlic has a very strong antiseptic action against numerous pathogenic germs and is a strong antibacterial thanks to the presence of garlicina that in fact manages to be very useful in all the diseases in which bacteria harmful to the human body are present. Finally garlic is not only useful to our body but when garlic is grown close to other horticultural plants it is able to protect them from the attack of harmful insects and removes some harmful diseases for plants.
Garlic contains many nutritional substances such as mineral salts (magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iodine and iron), vitamins (B1, B2, A, C and PP) and some active ingredients used with beneficial health effects.

Allicin is not present directly in the bulb but it is released when a clove of garlic is crushed or cut: it is in this moment that the typical comes out aroma composed of 70% allicin, resulting from the enzymatic reaction between cysteine sulfoxide and the enzyme alinase during the contusion of the bulb.
In addition to allicin there are other active substances such as enzymes and similar hormones that give to the garlic many healthy properties.
