This was interesting.

I have a love/hate relationship with garlic.
It seems to be the only thing that actually does measurable damage to the candida in my experience, but I am told the sulfur content is not healthy to consume so regularly.
While this may or may not be true, I dont see evidence of that.

Yes, I have heard that eating too much garlic will kill off the good bacteria as well, so eating too much of it is not good.

That may or may not be true, I have also heard that garlic doesnt affect good bacteria, so its a mixed bag of info. Kinda makes you wonder which studies they are referencing.

The info on garlic I have is that the sulfur content is good, but like anything else you can over do it. My eyes get blurrier right after eating it, but I eat too much at once for a little person. It thins the blood in large amounts, and lowers blood pressure. This means that some docs think it interferes with some medication too.

I understand that sulfur builds-up in the system, if it cant be eliminated properly when in excess. This would be the liver and the kidney’s job, and I think someone who is active can eliminate excess better/faster unless you are unluckily born with the disease that either inhibits or doesnt make an enzyme that metabolizes cysteine .

That might be total BS, what I said right there…im going on memory of some article I read that I wasnt super interested in. Worth a google though if sulfur rich foods like broccoli and garlic make you feel bad when you eat it.
