Wonderful Wild Garlic

Worth Knowing:
In the past several years, wild garlic has become increasingly popular again. Not only does this vegetable have a great flavor but it is also has a plethora of preventative properties.

Its long-stemmed young leaves are harvested between March and May and can be used in various culinary treats. As aromatic as garlic, wild garlic has a decisive advantage over its fragrance-intensive relative. Unlike “normal” bulb garlic, wild garlic isn’t quite as pungent and can therefore be consumed without worrying about who you are chatting with afterwards!

The delicate greens of wild garlic also have amazing health benefits. When eaten regularly this plant can:

  • have cleansing and detoxifying effects
  • help restore the balance of healthy gut bacteria and protect against Candida albicans infections
  • ease digestive issues such as diarrhea and constipation
  • improve blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  • support cardiovascular health and protect against arteriosclerosis
  • help with skin and hair problems
