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.
