Garlic: Not Just for Vampires, But Thyroid Patients Too!

By July 13, 2003

Follow me on:

If you take a bit of olive oil or butter, and add large amounts of garlic, you can pretty much sautee about anything -- shrimp, mushrooms, peppers, I don't care! -- and I'll think it's the best thing to eat the world. Many of you are, like me, garlic lovers simply because of the wonderful flavor. But lately, we're also finding out more about how garlic can help with a number of medical conditions and ailments. I just finished reading a great book... that tells you everything there is to know about garlic -- and includes more than 130 mouth-watering garlic recipes! Find out about "The Garlic Cure."

Garlic supplement has side effects. So not so much to this level.

“People with low thyroid function should be careful with concentrated garlic products. They can interfere with the thyroid glandís ability to utilize iodine, which is needed for the gland to function properly.”
