Other than being well known for its anti bacterial, anti viral, anti fungus and anti parasites properties, garlic also helps to normalise blood pres sure, shorten colds, improve HDL-LDL cholesterol ratio and is anti cancer. Even you like the taste of garlic (like me), there are times when you will wish that the breath will not smell. This is great way to take garlic without the ‘bad’ breath or gas. The softgel is made of gelatin (not for vegan), small and easy to swallow. The recommended dosage is 2 softgels, 1 to 2 times which I don’t think it’s a lot. 2 softgels contain only 50mg of garlic. Though it is concentrated, it does not state the ratio. Secondly, there isn’t much that you can remove from the garlic itself in order to concentrate it. A clove of garlic weighs about 5-6g so 50mg is 1/100 of it. It is best to take 2-3 cloves of garlic daily for optimum benefits. Since this product did not state the concentration, you can only gues s. This product also contains soy lecithin so those with allergies might want to skip. Another important thing to note is that aged garlic and raw garlic offers slightly different benefits as components in aged garlic had been altered over time to remove the smell. Personally, I feel like that it does not work as well as raw garlic. Check out my page for more reviews!

Perfect way of getting your garlic odorless

These pills really don't have any smell at all when you eat them. They are really odorless. I believe garlic is healthy for many many things and I like eating garlic, but I want to be sure I get the right amount everyday, so I take 2 gels everyday. I learned you have to eat enough of it to get the benefits. So this is an easy way to achieve it. It's even not expensive at all. But that means for all the vitamins I buy from iHerb. I live in the Netherlands and vitamins are at least 5 times more expensive here!!! So I love iHerb for their prices, products and great services!!
Great for Kids!!

I have given this NOW odorless garlic to my seven kids for years at the first sign of a runny nose, sore throat,etc and have saved many sick days. Wierd, but true: I have always called these "garlic candy," and the kids have ALL gone for it. The oil inside is slightly sweet with a mild garlic scent...For babies who are old enough to digest foods other than milk, puncture or bite the end of softgel and squeeze oil into the baby's mouth or mix into food. For competent chewers, just let them munch it. Small softgel is easy to swallow with water for beginners. If you go with the "candy" spin, store out of reach as a couple of my kids have downed large quantities on the sly. Yum. No harsh side effect that we noted, though. We use NOW super odorless with hawthorn and cayenne for hubby and me, but these have been excellent for the kids or for adults with tender tummies. As always, fantastic price and shipping from Iherb.
One of my favorite supplements!

I love this garlic. The pills are small, easy to swallow, and completely odorless (no garlic burps). I take 3 a day. It seems to keep a wrist rash away and helps with yeast infections that I'm prone to. I take it along with a probiotic to prevent yeast infections. I recommend it for anyone who might have yeast/candida infections or for anyone who's fighting off a cold virus.
