Before the discovery of penicillin, no effective treatment was available for infections such as pneumonia. It wasn’t until 1928, when Alexander Fleming noticed that the “mold” growing in his petri dish was killing the Staphylococcus bacteria, that penicillin came to be. However,the excessive use of antibiotics in humans and farm animals can drive drug-resistant bacteria to thrive.

It has been studied that bacteria have, now, been growing resistant to antibiotics that have been used time and time again. Not only that, many antibiotics are shown to have severe adverse effects, and have even led to death.

How to Use Garlic for bacterial or viral infections

This garlic oil ointment, also known as GOOT, is great for helping with bacterial or viral infections and fungus.

Garlic is probably nature’s most potent food.

Scientifically known as Allium sativa, garlic has been famous throughout history for its ability to fight off viruses and bacteria.

Allicin is the compound providing the largest range of garlic’s health benefits. Allicin also does not occur in garlic cloves, but is produced when garlic is finely chopped or crushed.

By chopping garlic more finely, more allicin may be produced. Pressing garlic or mincing it into a smooth paste will give you the strongest flavor and may also result in the highest amount of allicin.

Countless studies have shown that this compound is a potent antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal and antioxidant, which is why it’s so good at preventing and treating disease.
