Serious garlic gels
Reviewed in the United States on August 19, 2018
At 5000 mg, these are some serious garlic gels, so you'll probably want to take them with a little bit of food to get the best absorption and least amount of upset (garlic burps, etc.). I take them to help with my blood pressure and also to help combat the voracious mosquitoes we have had this summer. It seems to be helping on both counts. Although my PCP says that garlic isn't much help with blood pressure, there's no denying that my BP has gone down significantly since adding garlic to my daily med list. I haven't had my cholesterol checked since I started taking garlic again, but I know that when I was taking it regularly years ago, my levels were great, especially for someone who didn't mess around reading labels or watching what I ate. I do not take the recommended 6X daily dose, as I think that could get pretty overpowering pretty quickly. I take one in the morning, and sometimes one at night, and always with at least a little bit of food. I have not noticed (or heard any complaints about) having a garlic odor at this dosage, but imagine it would definitely be possible with higher levels. These bad boys are strong (and that's a good thing)!
