      North American Herb & Spice - Garlex - 1 oz.

      North American Herb & Spice's Garlex is the ultimate cold-pressed garlic oil available. Because it is cold-pressed, the garlic is raw, retaining more of its natural properties. In addition to the garlic, the potent spice extracts of coriander, basil, and oregano P73 are added.

      Garlic
      Parts used and where grown
      Garlic has been used since time immemorial as a culinary spice and medicinal herb. Garlic has been cultivated in the Middle East for more than 5,000 years and has been an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The region with the largest commercial garlic production is central California. China is also a supplier of commercial garlic. The bulb is used medicinally.

      Historical or Traditional Use
      Garlic is mentioned in the Bible and the Talmud. Hippocrates, Galen, Pliny the Elder, and Dioscorides all mention the use of garlic for many conditions, including parasites, respiratory problems, poor digestion, and low energy. Its use in China was first mentioned in A.D. 510. Louis Pasteur studied the antibacterial action of garlic in 1858.

      Active constituents
      The sulfur compound allicin, produced by crushing or chewing fresh garlic or by taking powdered garlic products with allicin potential, in turn produces other sulfur compounds: ajoene, allyl sulfides, and vinyldithiins. Aged garlic products lack allicin, but may have activity due to the presence of S-allylcysteine.

      Many publications have shown that garlic supports the cardiovascular system. While earlier trials suggest it may mildly lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood, more recent trials found garlic to have minimal success in lowering cholesterol and triglycerides. Garlic also inhibits platelet stickiness (aggregation) and increases fibrinolysis, which results in a slowing of blood coagulation. It is mildly antihypertensive and has antioxidant activity.

      Garlic’s cardiovascular protective effects were illustrated in a four-year clinical trial on people 50–80 years old with atherosclerosis. It was found that consumption of 900 mg of a standardized garlic supplement reduced arterial plaque formation by 5–18%. The benefits were most notable in women.

      In test tube studies garlic has been found to have antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal activity. However, these actions are less clear in humans and do not suggest that garlic is a substitute for antibiotics or antifungal medications.

      Human population studies suggest that eating garlic regularly reduces the risk of esophageal, stomach, and colon cancer. This may be partly due to garlic’s ability to reduce the formation of carcinogenic compounds.

      How much is usually taken?
      People who wish to consume garlic and have no aversion to its odor can chew from one to two whole cloves of raw garlic daily. For those who prefer it with less odor, enteric-coated tablets or capsules with approximately 1.3% allin are available. Clinical trials have used 600–900 mg (delivering approximately 5,000–6,000 mcg of allicin potential) per day in two or three divided amounts. Aged-garlic extracts have been studied in amounts ranging from 2.4–7.2 grams per day.

      Are there any side effects or interactions?
      Many people enjoy eating garlic. However, some people who are sensitive to it may experience heartburn and flatulence. Because of garlic’s anti-clotting properties, people taking anticoagulant drugs should check with their doctor before taking garlic. Those scheduled for surgery should inform their surgeon if they are taking garlic supplements. Garlic appears to be safe during pregnancy and breast-feeding. In fact, two studies have shown that babies like breast milk better from mothers who eat garlic.

      North American Herb and Spice Mission
      North American Herb and Spice is not only to educate the public on the powers of raw whole foods, but to create a morale standard for the way we nourish our bodies. Our beliefs intertwine with movements across the globe that advocate the conservation of our natural resources and maintain the delicate balance of nature. For this we align ourselves and support causes that set a high morale standard for the respect of nature and our health. We are opposed to the use of genetically modified organisms in our food. We believe in the power of raw foods, and the power that uncooked vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and enzymes posses. We believe that nature intended for our bodies to depend on natural-source vitamins and minerals, not synthetics. It is these among other ideals that have fueled our pursuit for a happier and healthier human race.

      Wild handpicked spices such as the oregano we use in Oreganol P73 are the cornerstone of our product line. The phenolic compounds found in these spices have been revered since antiquity for their powerful effects. These whole, raw spices are steam distilled using the same processes used for generations, capturing the concentrated essential oil at often astounding ratios. These concentrated spice oils are then emulsified in extra virgin olive oil at the perfect ratio for power and palatability. Through this proprietary process invented by our founder Ms. Gray, the spice extract market in the United States was revived after problems with adulteration hindered its growth in the early 1950s. The end result was the purest, most powerful spice extracts made from the purest ingredients free from pesticides, chemicals, and solvents.

      Wild oregano is handpicked by villagers in the most remote mountainous regions of the Mediterranean. This ensures the impeccable purity and quality of the essential oils we provide. When the wild spice and herbs are steam distilled to extract the powerful essential oils, it is done with pure, underground spring waters. This is a technique used by the indigenous peoples of the region for centuries. After the steam distillation process is complete, the essential oils are then tested to ensure the phytochemical markers are within our expectations. When the essential oils are emulsified, it is in organic extra virgin olive oil, which by itself possesses powerful nutritive properties. We never adulterate our products with fillers, chemicals, or solvents. North American Herb and Spice’s early challenges have led to the development of not only the most unique variety of products in the world, but also a standard for quality second to none.

      North American Herb and Spice History
      North American Herb and Spice was founded in 1999 by Judy Kay Gray, MS with the idea that nourishment from raw whole foods is the key to maintaining optimal health. Today those founding ideals serve as the foundation for more than 130 unique products, formulations that are highly nourishing and naturally powerful. Throughout the years North American Herb and Spice has exemplified quality in all the ingredients used to formulate its products. From the remote mountains of the Mediterranean to the valleys of the Amazon rainforest, North American Herb and Spice has sourced the finest fruits, herbs, and spices in the world. Wild handpicked spices such as the oregano we use in Oreganol P73 are the cornerstone of our product line.
