Garlic (or alliums sativum) is a wonder plant and it’s a member of the Lily family and perhaps a cousin to onions and leeks.
Alliums sativum (garlic) may help to improve iron metabolism because the daily sulfides in it can help increase production of protein called FERROPORTION.
Garlic is what scientists call aseleniferous plant since it can uptake selenium from the soil even when the soil concentrations don’t favour this uptake.
The cardio-protective benefits of garlic may partly rest on the production of hydrogen sulfide gas, and it can also help to regulate the number of fat cells that get formed in our body. The unique sulfur compounds in garlic have along been recognised as having anti-inflammatory properties.
