Garlic is a naturally rich source of zinc and sulfur. It has a 5,000 yr. history as an infection fighter. During the middle ages, it was used along with apple cider vinegar to stop the plague. Legend tells us that during the bubonic plague, four thieves drank a potion of vinegar and garlic and would rob the graves of the dead. They believed the garlic and vinegar mixture protected them from the plague. Garlic has been reported in some studies to be more effective than the anti-fungal drug Nystatin in killing various strains of yeast and fungus. Several studies have shown that garlic inhibits viral replication (1).
Dr. Edward Delaha of George Washington University showed that garlic inhibited many acid-fast bacteria, including tuberculosis (1). Dr. Lou reported in his book, "Garlic for Health," that he and his students were testing various drugs for their anti-microbial activity. He stated:
"Upon returning to my laboratory, I prepared diluted garlic extract, introduced it to several of the cultures, and stuck them in the incubator overnight. The next day I was astounded to find that the diluted garlic extract did indeed stop the growth of those cultures, more effectively, in fact, than some of the potent drugs we were testing at the time."
A medical student working with Dr. Lou reported that the HIV virus did not grow well in the presence of garlic in tissue cultures (1). Garlic has been reported in several studies effective against several forms of cancer. The antimicrobial spectrum of garlic by in vivo and in vitro studies include Herpes, Cryptocci, Candida, Histoplasma, Mycobacteria, Salmonella, and Entamoeba. Garlic has increased platelet counts in some studies.
Mark Abbruzzese, M.D. of Washington, recently tested fresh raw garlic in his lab against various pathogens like Tuberculosis and various strains of yeast and found that raw garlic killed them all. The same anti-bacterial effects were not found from over the counter garlic pills.
