Reasons to Take Garlic Supplements

Eating raw garlic cloves can be a mouth burning adventure, especially for people who are use to eating bland foods. Eating raw garlic can also cause burping, bad breath, and a bad body odor. For these and other reasons, people turn to taking garlic supplements.

Types of Garlic Supplements

Odorless garlic supplements - These pills give you all the benefits of garlic without the powerful odor. Odorless supplements should not cause any bad body odors.

Garlic oil soft gels - Taking garlic oil in a soft gel eliminates the need to chew a garlic clove, but it also has the garlic smell.

Allicin tabs - Allicin is extracted from garlic. These tablets are generally odorless and provide users with a main nutrient in garlic.
