Bacteria seem to be specific for different conditions. Check out Dr. Dahlman's video (if you have money to spend on a supplement protocol). Also, Chris Kresser reports very good results with Prescript-Assist, which has a lot of soil-based... (more)

All I have is garlic with little green bits coming from the tips of the cloves. Is eating this as bad as eating green potatoes?

Crowbar_1 0 · January 16, 2013 at 2:57 PM

No. The green bit can make the garlic bitter, but I just slice it open and remove the sprout.

Why is it that I can eat cucumber, but even eating 1/2 a Bubbie's pickle gives me painful gas? Is it (a) the increased probiotics (even though other sources of probiotics don't bug me, like kefir), or (b) the fact that the brine contains garlic... (more)

Have you tried making your own fermented pickles without garlic? I have some IBS issues and actually do well with both raw and pickled cucumbers. I honestly haven't tried Bubbie's lately, so I don't have any idea if it's the garlic or the... (more)

I had heard that garlic helps boost T levels. i have 500MG of garlic + protien shake (10-15GRAMS) everyday in the morning (after workouts if i am working out that day). Any thoughts/feedback on garlic supplementation?

Eating actual garlic and actual protein like beef will help boost T a lot more than that combo. You could probably check out some porn to boost T even more significantly though.

Garlic has an antiseptic impact. I love garlic, I eat a lot of lamb and lamb goes together well with lots of garlic. Does a high garlic consumption affect my gut flora?

I think that there is no certain answer to this question. My opinion would be that garlic, even eaten in quite large amounts will have very little effect on you gut flora. I personally thing that any antibacterial effects of garlic inside the... (more)

Does anyone use garlic oil for anything? I recently saw it in the oil section at Whole Foods, but hadn't heard or read anything about it before.

Garlic oil is usually garlic flavored olive oil, canola oil or a blend. The usual paleo advice would apply (stay away from tthe canola, don't cook with the olive oil). Might be awesome for salads.
