The medicinal effects of Garlic have been well known for literally Thousands of years. The Codex Ebers or Ebers Papyrus dating back to 1,500 BC is one of the earliest recorded medical texts detailing the uses of plants by the Egyptians. They listed Garlic for skin diseases, poisoning, heart problems and tumors. Well preserved cloves of Garlic were found in the tomb of King Tutankhamen. Medieval Europeans used “the stinking rose” to ward off Evil as well as the plague. It was used during World War I in the trenches in a similar fashion to help soldiers resist respiratory infection and infection from wounds. The historical uses could fill many volumes. Garlic remains one of the most widely used medicinal herbs in the world and is one of the most well researched plants on the planet.
