Garlic And Herpes - Natures Virus Killer?
Garlic contains an active ingredient called allicin. This ingredient has been proven in laboratory tests to have excellent anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Studies have also shown that garlic lowers cholesterol, blood pressure, lessens the chance of colds and flu, and may even reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.
The daily dosage of garlic considered to be beneficial is said to be 2 to 3 cloves per day, crushed in food or raw! For those that don't want to permanently smell of garlic, the other option is a garlic supplement capsule equivalent to the same amount. Garlic can also be applied directly to a herpes outbreak. The best way is to crush a clove of garlic with a little olive oil and apply the mixture directly to the affected area.
Garlic is an excellent way to boost your immune system, and combat the herpes virus.
