Garlic has been used for centuries by a multitude of cultures as a superfood. It has a protein in it called lectin which is anti viral. It's unique in that it actually competes with viruses for the same receptors in the gut. This means that the more garlic you eat, the less likely your gut is to receive the virus. The virus has to attach to the receptor but if garlic gets into the receptor first, the virus can’t connect. Seriously amazing.
BrothMasters Bone Broth is loaded with garlic and other anti-viral, anti- inflammatory herbs and vegetables. We partnered with a food scientist consultant, Jack Lasso, who taught us how to properly handle these medicinal vegetables, controlling temperature and time to retain the maximum levels of anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties.
Garlic is also a prebiotic – it feeds the probiotic in your gut. The more food, or prebiotics, that probiotics have to eat, the more efficiently these live bacteria work and the healthier your gut will be.
Our broth is so soothing and healing when you're sick but prevention is the best medicine. Get a step ahead this cold and flu season!
