ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Garlic (Allium sativa), is a plant with long, flat glasslike leaves and a papery hood around the flowers. The greenish white or pink flowers are found grouped together at the end of a long stalk. The stalk rises directly from the flower bulb, which is the part of the plant used as food and medicine. The bulb is made up of many smaller bulbs covered with a papery skin known as cloves.

The potential benefits of garlic intake for decreased risk of cardiovascular disease have been studied in a variety of conditions including heart attack (myocardial infarct), coronary artery disease (CAD), high blood pressure (hypertension), and atherosclerosis. Garlic has been used to treat illness and disease for thousands of years.2 In fact, there are biblical references to the use of garlic in medicine.
STORAGE & USES
The easiest way to store garlic at home is in mesh bags or loosely woven baskets. Garlic with flexible tops can be made into pretty braids to hang. But garlic with a stiff central stalk — often called hardneck garlic — will shatter if you try to braid it.
