15. Fighting Sickness and the Common Cold

Since we know that garlic supplementation is known to boost the function of the immune system, it is not surprising that one 12-week study concluded that a daily garlic supplement reduces the number of colds by 63% when compared with placebo.

 

And those who received garlic and got colds had benifits.  They found that the average length of cold symptoms reduced by 70%, from 5 days in placebo to just 1.5 days in the garlic group.

 

Another controlled study concluded that a high dose of garlic extract (2.56 grams per day) can reduce the number of days sick with cold or flu by 61%.

 

Chronic colds sufferers take note, adding garlic to your diet could be very helpful.

 

I wonder was it the chicken soup or the garlic that they put in it.

 

16. Blood Pressure

Researchers say that the Active Compounds in Garlic Can Reduce Blood Pressure.

 

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is one of the most important drivers of strokes and heart attacks.

 

There is one study in which it was found that aged garlic extract at doses of 600-1,500 mg acted just as effectively as the drug Atenolol at reducing blood pressure over a 24 week period.
Supplementation must be high to have these desired effects. The amount of allicin needed is equivalent to about four cloves of garlic per day.  It is not tasty this way but if you have a juicer add a clove to your juice several times a day.  It is not about taste it is about health.  It is not that bad.   Fresh is always better.

He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions. His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics. He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today. As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations. Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes. Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality. Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective.
