Garlic originates from central Asia and has historically been used as medicine with records dating it’s use for at least 5,000 years.
The benefits of garlic are globally appreciated through medicinal history with records stating it’s use in:
Egypt - Circulatory support, parasites
Rome - Addressing GI disorders, animal bites, joint disease
China - Respiration, digestion, male sexual function
India - Infections, worms, fatigue
Middle Ages - constipation, breathing disorders
The above list has two main common themes, circulation and gut health, however it is also recognised for it’s hepatoprotective, immune-enhancing, anticancer and chemopreventive activity.
To date, 3000 publications from all over the world have confirmed the health benefits of garlic.
The antimicrobial effects of garlic show activity against the following pathogenic activity:
• Dermatophilus congolensis
• H. Plyori
• Klebsiella spp
• Proteus vulgaris
• Citrobacter spp
• Candida spp
• Aspergillus spp
• Tinea corporis, capitis, cruris
• Cryptococcus spp
Lactobacilli showed a degree of resistance to garlic, indicating that its consumption may favour the growth of these beneficial bacterial species in the gut (Filocamo A, et al. 2012). There are certain strains of the beneficial bacteria, Bifido, which are susceptible to garlic’s antimicrobial effects, with bifidum being the most sensitive (Booyens and Thantsha. 2013). If you have completed a stool test and found these specific strains to be low, I would first personally look at utilising a different antimicrobial if other pathogens are present which need addressing.
We can potentiate the antimicrobial benefits either by ageing or crushing the garlic.
Whole garlic typically contains, 1% alliin, however storage of garlic bulbs at cool temperatures, alliin increases naturally.
Once garlic is cut or crushed, compounds from the intact garlic are converted into hundreds of organosulfur compounds in a ~10 minutes.
When garlic is “damaged,” (attacked by a microbe, crushed, cut or chewed) an enzyme, alliinase, rapidly converts the alliin to allicin - giving the distinguishable smell
How to train the posterior capsule of the shoulder, the ‘rear delt’, in good relationship with a well positioned shoulder girdle. Minimal upper trap, stay in depression. The big orange thing is a parka jacket sleeve, it there to cue the eye of the shoulder. I want it in between center spine and sternum, remember? All n all, GT in hip, rips, eye of shoulder, and ear, ought all line up over knee over ankle.... same if you doing prone work.
Anatomical Zero is the baseline. 😁
I’m using a 21oz ball.
Laterally rotate humerus while keeping ulna and radius medially neutral. Other words, all of the external rotation comes from the shoulder, not a spinning wrist. ☀️whew, there 3 elements necessary for this rear delt organizer.
There are no reps, just one good exacting semi tonic position. Then once found and set up, a larger movement can ensue. ☀️
