5 MORE REASON TO USE FERMENTED GARLIC SCAPE
Five more reasons to buy fermented
1. They may increase oxygen levels in the blood: When people suffer from many diseases, including liver disease, the body releases compounds that can interfere with the amount of oxygen available in the blood. There are components of garlic, as well as its scapes, which may help to oxygenate the blood and maintain healthy tissues and organs.
2. They could protect against osteoarthritis: Garlic scapes contain many allium compounds also found in the bulbs of garlic plants. These compounds may inhibit the enzymes in the body that are responsible for breaking down the bone tissue. As we age, this becomes increasingly important for the prevention of fractures and osteoarthritis.
3. They are high in antioxidants: The sulphur compounds in garlic scapes boost glutathione, the body’s most powerful antioxidant. This can protect the cells of the body against outside causes of illness from bacteria or viruses, as well as internal causes of damage including stress.
4. They may have anti-cancer properties: Diallyl sulphide is one of the many sulphur compounds found in the scapes of garlic. This sulphur compound in garlic has been shown in lab studies to cause programmed cell death (apoptosis) in non-small cell lung cancer cells
