Sometimes your husband can be a real lug of a man. He surely has hairy ears and hairy toes. And yeah, he’s maybe always doing something just a little dumb. I mean, it can’t be an accident the plot of most modern-day commercials is “goofball husband set straight by on-the-ball wife.”
So the next time your husband does something ridiculous like sell the gutters off the house to buy racing stripes for the station wagon, don’t panic. Instead, give your husband Bear Paw Garlic. It won’t fix your home or make him smarter or anything (although garlic has been shown to improve blood flow to the brain, so it might help a little there, just FYI), but it will make you like him more.
Why garlic? Researchers at the University of Stirling in Prague did a study where they fed one group of men garlic bulbs, another group garlic capsules and a third group received zero garlic. Then they had women smell body odor samples from the men and then rate those odors based on their pleasantness, attractiveness, masculinity and intensity.
According to the sniff test, men who ate 12 g (bulb or capsule) of garlic per day were deemed significantly more desirable than the men who did not eat garlic. The researchers believe that this is due to the health benefits (antioxidant, immune-system booster, cardiovascular, anti-bacterial, anti-cancer) bestowed by garlic.
Craig Roberts, Professor of Psychology at the University of Stirling, said: “Our results indicate that garlic consumption may have positive effects on the pleasure derived from perceived body odour perhaps due to its health effects
It should be noted, however, that this research only looked at body-odor smell and not breath-odor smell which is still deemed undesirable by the majority.
AIM’s Bear Paw Garlic comes in odorless capsules, so your husband’s breath won’t smell like an old pizzeria, but everyday Bear Paw Garlic-usage may convey those smell-improving health benefits. Who knows? It might work so well, you’ll be able to overlook your husband’s goofball antics, at least for a little while.
