Product name:Garlic extract
Description: Allium sativum, commonly known as garlic, is a species in the onion family Alliaceae. Its close relatives include the onion, shallot, leek, chive, and Rakkyo. The garlic plant's bulb is the most commonly used part of the plant. With the exception of the single clove types, the bulb is divided into numerous fleshy sections called cloves. The cloves are used for cloning, consumption (raw or cooked), or for medicinal purposes, and have a characteristic pungent, spicy flavor that mellows and sweetens considerably with cooking. Garlic is widely used around the world for its pungent flavor as a seasoning or condiment. Garlic is grown globally, but China is by far the largest producer of garlic, with approximately 10.5 million tonnes (23 billion pounds) annually, accounting for over 77% of world output.
Garlic has been used throughout history for both culinary and medicinal purposes in many cultures for thousands of years, dating at least as far back as the time that the Giza pyramids were built. In ancient times, garlic was used as a remedy for intestinal disorders, flatulence, worms, respiratory infections, skin diseases, wounds, symptoms of aging, and many other ailments. To date, more than 3000 publications from all over the world have gradually confirmed the traditionally recognized health benefits of garlic.
The Garlic Extract used in dietary supplements is derived from the bulb of the plant garlic (Allium sativum L.).
