If you research garlic you'll find that the Roman athletes ate tons of garlic before they competed. Tons of garlic were shipped in to feed the athletes.
But garlic is hard to eat. It burns your mouth and makes you smell.
Recently I was helping a friend move. Moving to another state. She had some years ago suffered a damaged rotator cuff. She's in her 60's but was running around as if she were thirty years younger. I saw her open a box of jarred garlic. That is they were pickled. She told me that she ate three cloves in the morning and she runs all day off those cloves. That doesn't mean that she doesn't eat her breakfast or lunch. At any rate, she gave me a jar of the garlic and I ate some.
One thing that I noticed is that she doesn't have the scent of garlic. I ate some and it just tasted like pickles, so, I guess that explains why I didn't smell like garlic. There's not even a hint of garlic smell. The other thing I noticed is that unlike the usual, when I get home and feel sleepy and hit the sack, I feel not the sleep and could stay up hours longer. I contrast this to the fact that I do eat raw garlic and sometimes whole cloves. The interesting thing is that raw garlic does not have the same results as eating the pickled garlic. In fact, not even close. I can still feel tired as ever eating raw garlic. I guess the stomach's digestion is aided by the pickling.
At any rate, I share this fact so you can benefit. I've been looking for this sort of garlic in grocery stores. I ordered the brand that she gave me. They are the Granzellas brand. I won't share the link as I don't want to be a marketer. But you can find it online if you look. I plan to try other brands as well. This may just as well be the solution for people who need health assist but can't stand the harshness of garlic.
