The most dominant mineral of garlic is sulphur. About 80% of garlic oil is in the form of sulphur elements. They are a natural antibiotic and they promote the elimination of toxins from the lymphatic system and organs.

Many of our soldiers cut up garlic and onions (they are members of the same family) and put them in their marching boots to prevent infection from broken blisters.

Garlic oil is most effective in clearing mucous from the respiratory system. A lot of our processed foods like refined bread, milk, cheese and drinks as well as smoking and environmental pollutants cause a build up of mucous in the body.

A cold is often a warning that the body needs to eliminate excess mucous toxins. People often get worried if they eliminate mucous but the more mucous that is eliminated from the body the better we will feel.
