In this 2020 letter to the editor, the researchers of Khubber et al. describe in great detail the reasons garlic with all of its active phytochemical is the perfect daily food or supplement for viral infections, including SARS-CoV-2.
This important article has been featured in 18 different journals and editorials.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is the current major health crisis in the world. A successful strategy to combat the COVID-19 pandemic is the improvement of nutritional pattern. Garlic is one of the most efficient natural antibiotics against the wide spectrum of viruses and bacteria. Organosulfur (e.g., allicin and alliin) and flavonoid (e.g., quercetin) compounds are responsible for immunomodulatory effects of this healthy spice. The viral replication process is accelerated with the main structural protease of SARS-CoV-2. The formation of hydrogen bonds between this serine-type protease and garlic bioactives in the active site regions inhibits the COVID-19 outbreak. The daily dietary intake of garlic and its derived-products as an adjuvant therapy may improve side effects and toxicity of the main therapeutic drugs with reducing the used dose.
Garlic offers a broad-spectrum antimicrobial for GI pathogenic infections from bacteria to viruses to yeast/mold and Protozoa (i.e., giardia, Cryptosporidium, amoebae, H. pylori, and more). Take 1-2 capsules once or twice a day. Each capsule has five garlic cloves.*
