Why does concentrated garlic make my stomach/digestion feel better?

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've dealt with stomach problems for almost 7 years now, just last year i found out that taking a concentrated garlic supplement called Allimax, started relieving alot of stomach issues and symptoms i deal with, don't know if it's bringing down inflammation in my stomach or if its keeping a stomach bacteria at bay.

    Garlic has anti inflammatory oroperties which can aid digestion and inhibit the growth of certain stomach bacteria such as h pylori.

    Very likely as has good antibacterial properties, especially if you take the allicillin. just be aware it does have anticoagulant properties. x

      Yes i was aware of the anticoagulant properties, i was just trying to boil down the variables of WHY it is helping my stomach, because i cant seem to find alot of research on garlic supplements and it helping the stomach, so i dont know exactly how its helping me.

    garlic is very strong, have you ever chewed raw garlic? one little piece of garlic makes me go to the bathroom if i eat it raw.

      You wouldn't ear it raw, however if you have a mouth ulcer or on of those white pimples on your tongue, dab raw garlic on it - it will hurt like f*ck but you will be rid quick.

      Go to google scholar - then put in garlic and mrsa. Or head to Cochran Library and enter the same.

      On a side note - I take garlic gel capsules every day - must have allicillin at as near to 2mgs as possible, and it will ward off cough and colds If you do get ill up to 10 capsules a time and you will feel better quicker..

      I have terrible chest infections that last at least two months after coming back from holiday every year. Maybe I should be taking them too.
