Wild Bear’s Garlic is the Green Garlic! Harvested from the wild, these garlic leaves (spears) are highest in total sulfur, adenosine, ajoenes and minerals. Great for blood cleansing and for the circulatory system.
Wild Bear’s Garlic is one of the oldest medicinal herbs known to man. Its healing properties have been recognized by Europeans for centuries where it is valued for its ability to cleanse the blood of impurities. The name Wild Bear’s Garlic comes from the observation that bears awakening from their winter hibernation devoured vast quantities of the plant to restore their strength. Wild Bear’s Garlic has long been used as a remedy for a wide range of diseases. Though very similar to ordinary cultivated garlic in function, Wild Bear’s Garlic has higher levels of ajoenes, adenosine, iron, and ACE-Inhibitory potential. In fact, it has one of the highest natural sulfur and adenosine levels found anywhere in the plant kingdom! Adenosine is a key component in the regulation of hypertention and tachycardia.
While ordinary garlic (Allium sativum) has been cultivated for centuries resulting in a uniform, less vigorous strain, Wild Bear’s Garlic (Allium ursinum) is organically grown in the wild on the Alpine Plains. Rich in special sulfur compounds, Wild Bear’s Garlic has circulation increasing and lipid-reducing properties that could be useful aids in preventing heart attacks. For two plants to have the same or similar properties it is necessary that their patterns of components be similar. In comparative chemical analysis and in enzyme and cell tests, Wild Bear’s Garlic was found to have an effect corresponding to that of cultivated garlic. However, Wild Bear’s Garlic contains more ajoenes, 30% more sulfur, and about 20 times more adenosine than cultivated garlic. It is to ajoene and adenosine that the well known effects on cholesterol, hypertension and tachycardia are largely attributed.
1992 Plant of the Year! Because Wild Bear’s Garlic is healthful, odorless and organic, it was named 1992 Plant of the Year by the Society for the Protection and Investigation of European Flora.

Chelation Therapy is a process in which a substance is used to bind molecules, such as metals or minerals, and hold them tightly so that they can be removed from the body. Chelation has been scientifically proven to rid the body of excess or toxic metals. For example, a person who has lead poisoning may be given chelation therapy in order to bind and remove lead from the body before it can cause damage.
With EDTA chelation therapy, the substance that binds and removes metals and minerals is EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), a synthetic amino acid that is often delivered intravenously. EDTA was first used shortly after WWII for the treatment of heavy metal poisoning. Calcium disodium EDTA chelation removes heavy metals and minerals from the blood, such as lead, iron, copper, and calcium, and is approved by the FDA for use in treating lead poisoning and toxicity from other heavy metals. Although disodium EDTA it is not approved by the FDA to treat coronary heart disease (CHD), some physicians and alternative medicine practitioners have recommended its use in chelation as a way to treat CHD.
CaNa2 EDTA (Calcium disodium ethylenediamenetetraacetic acid) is the most common form of EDTA used in chelation therapy and the one with the history of safe and effective use. There are a couple other compounds commonly referred to as EDTA, so when it comes to chelation therapy, make sure it’s Calcium disodium EDTA.
A couple easy steps will help ensure you get the full impact of EDTA.
- EDTA is most effective when taken on an empty stomach. This is because EDTA will begin binding to the first minerals it comes in contact with, so keeping it away from minerals in your stomach during absorption will help save the EDTA molecule’s effectiveness for where you want it (the bloodstream).
- Follow recommended dosage (2 caps twice per day) and supplement with a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement. (Take separately from EDTA). A mineral-rich one-a-day will help replenish natural and healthy mineral levels that may get slightly depleted with regular EDTA use.
- Cycle on and off EDTA. We recommend 6 weeks on followed by 2 weeks off. This is for the same reason we recommend a multivitamin and mineral supplement, 2 weeks off after prolonged regular use will allow your body time to naturally resupply itself with the proper mineral levels that may become depleted by EDTA.
