    Default Garlic Beats Drug In Detoxifying Lead Safely From The Body

    Garlic is used the world over as a culinary spice, but recent research indicates that among its 100+ medicinal properties it is far safer and more effective than a commonly used chelation drug in pulling lead out of the human body.

    A remarkable study published in the journal Basic & Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology revealed something very special about garlic: it is a natural detoxifier of lead and is not only as effective as a common chelation drug known as d-penicillamine at pulling this metal out of the body but is also much safer.
    The study was titled, "Comparison of therapeutic effects of garlic and d-penicillamine in patients with chronic occupational lead poisoning," and sought to confirm previous research in animals that showed garlic (Allium sativum) is effective in reducing blood and tissue lead concentrations.[1]

    This is surprising, not only for the power of garlic but also for the 60% who suffered severe side effects from the chelation drug. I use a lot of both garlic and ginger in main dishes; think I'll kick that up a notch!

    Usually, I crush 2 or 3 cloves, let sit for about 20 - 30 minutes, and then sprinkle over my greens, or salad, etc. Sometimes, I put chopped garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil, let sit for 30 minutes, and then sprinkle over food. Yummy. I understand that if you add garlic to cooked dishes the garlic should be added as late in the cooking process as possible to retain the maximum nutritional benefits of the allicin.

    Just how long does it take for the allicin to develop? I always understood 10 minutes, but maybe that's just the minimum.

    You're absolutely correct. It only takes about 5 - 10 minutes for allicin to form. I give it 30 minutes to ensure maximum pungency and potency.
