What Garlic herb Is:

If garlic didn't exist, the great pyramids might not exist. The pungent bulb supposedly imbued Egyptians with the strength to erect those mammoth structures. And without garlic, the world would have been overcome by vampires long ago. The plant, which has long, flat, pointy leaves and pinkish white flowers, is native to Europe but now grows naturally in the central United States. It also thrives in Gilroy, California, the "Garlic Capital of the World," and in any garden that enjoys a lot of warm, sunny weather.

A cousin of onion, leek, chive, and shallot, and a more distant kin of lily and aloe, garlic has been employed since ancient times as both food and medicine. Given the bulb's blow to that "ol' factory" in your nose, some herbal authorities theorize that it worked in the past simply because it maintained a good arm's length or two between the wearer and everybody else. We now know better. Garlic is potent medicine, arguably one of the best that nature has to offer.

Used medicinally for 5000 years, garlic has many well-researched effects. It is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and anti-inflammatory. It boosts immune function, helps digestion and has also been shown to have anti-cancer effects.
