There is an interesting story in the ancient Hindu manuscripts about the origin of Garlic. It is said that when Lord Garuda, the giant eagle and personal carrier of Lord Vishnu, ran away after snatching the pot of “nectar – the elixir of life” from the hands of Lord Indra, the king of Heaven, some drops of nectar spilled from the pot and fell in the Himalayan region of the earth. The place where the spilled drops of nectar had fallen, a small plant grew in which all the divine properties of the nectar were found and it was named as “Rason”. The name “Rason” means King of Rasas as this plant possessed five out of six tastes (Rasa). It is also believed to such an extent that this Rason possesses wonder properties to magically correct all physiological malfunctionings of the human body. This Rason is also known as Lahsun in hindi, Garlic in English, Allium sativum in Latin, which is used worldwide as a natural medicine as well as a taste builder for food items.
Throughout recorded history, garlic has played rich and diverse commercial, culinary, literary, and mythical roles. Balkans rubbed garlic on doorknobs and window frames to discourage vampires from haunting them, and they hung garlic on doors and windows so that nobody would take milk from their cows and the families would be safe from witches. In other parts of Europe, fisherman and seamen wore cloves of garlic to protect themselves from evil spirits and diseases, and mothers hung garlic on children to protect them from the demons of sickness. Garlic is mentioned in the hieroglyphs, and has been found in the graves of the Egyptian Pharaohs. Garlic was grown in the hanging gardens of Babylon, and the Romans were given garlic to strengthen them before battle. The soldiers munched the garlic as a snack, and named it "the stinking rose". The Vikings ate large quantities of garlic before setting out on plundering expeditions, to boost their spirits and energy. The slaves building the Cheops pyramid approximately 5,800 years ago are said to have gone on strike when they weren't given their ration of garlic.
There are 62 varieties of Garlic found on this earth.

Garlic historically has been prepared and administered in numerous ways. The tradition continues today where garlic is ingested raw, pickled, cooked, or as a commercially prepared supplement. Garlic is a real nutritional supplement, which besides containing 20 percent each of fixed oil & carbohydrates, is also rich in calcium, potassium and phosphorus besides possessing traces of iodine, sulphur, iron, chlorine, protein, alkaloid, Vit-B1, Vit-C, riboflavin etc.. Garlic also possesses a chemical constituent Allicin, as its active principle that has been found to be a strong
antimicrobial. Most authorities agree that the best measure of the total activity of garlic is its ability to produce Allicin, which, in turn, results in the formation of other active principles that have been found useful as antiplatelet, antibiotic, and antihyperlipidemic. In hyperlipidemia patients, garlic lowers cholesterol levels and is said to reduce oxidative stress and low-density lipoprotein oxidation. Allicin also stimulates the large intestine by regulating bowel movements and being helpful in both constipation as well as diarrhea, thus stimulating metabolism and helping in the elimination of toxic food remnants from the body.
