Depending on your perspective, garlic can be a welcome addition to nutrition or a to-be-avoided-at-all-costs odoriferous mess. Vampires would definitely have negative opinions about this stand-alone herb, but, then again, you don’t have to be a bloodthirsty monster to dislike garlic. Then again . . . there is an interesting connection between garlic and the circulation of blood.
If you go to WebMD website and look up garlic, you’ll find that it “is used for many conditions related to the heart and blood system. These conditions include high blood pressure, low blood pressure, high cholesterol, inherited high cholesterol, coronary heart disease, heart attack, reduced blood flow due to narrowed arteries and ‘hardening of the arteries’ (atherosclerosis).” And that’s a lot of blood-related benefits.
But the perks of consuming garlic don’t stop with the blood-pumping heart. Besides demonstrating antibacterial, anti-cancer, anti-fungal and antioxidant properties for the entire body (as though that’s not enough to change the minds of anti-garlic individuals), garlic has been used for asthma, bronchitis, coughs, fever, gout, headache, joint pain, stomach ache, tuberculosis and so much more.
In Asia, Europe and the Middle East, garlic is used as a traditional dietary supplement for diabetes. A 2006 study that tested rats showed garlic was effective for lowering “rodent” blood sugar. A 2012 study that tested diabetic rabbits (yes, rabbits) instead of rats came to the same blood-sugar-lowering conclusion for bunnies. And a 2017 study using humans (finally) concluded that “garlic contributes to improved blood glucose control.” The prevalence of diabetes is rising rapidly worldwide, and it’s a life threatening disease. Increasing garlic intake may help preventatively and proactively for diabetes and so many other conditions.
Getting back to odoriferousness, if you are healthily pounding back large amounts of garlic in your food intake as a preference or for health reasons, you probably have few people who want to hang out with you unless they too eat copious amounts of garlic, resulting in a mutual “eau de garlic” situation. Mind you, it’s healthy. But there are far less fragrant options.
There are many types of cultivated garlic. And then there’s alpine wild garlic that grows in the forests and mountains of Europe. Allium ursinum is its Latinized name, and ursinum means bear, which is also wild (both animal- and impressive-wise). And that’s the type that ended up in AIM Bear Paw Garlic. But it’s not the typical bulb of the garlic that is used; it’s the leaves of wild garlic that are found in this unique and effective supplement.
Allium ursinum has advantages over Allium sativum, the usual kind sold in supermarkets and used in other garlic supplements. Along with all of the benefits of garlic, ursinum (bear) has more of the active substances, such as adenosine and allicin, which make garlic so beneficial.
When you open a bottle of Bear Paw Garlic, you’ll know there is something very garlicky inside. But it’s odorless once digested, mainly because of the presence of chlorophyll in the leaves. So you don’t have to be concerned about alienating your friends and loved ones.
The convenience of taking 3 capsules of Bear Paw Garlic gives you a daily serving of just over 1,000 mg of wild alpine garlic and the benefits that follow:
- cardiovascular health
- maintain healthy blood pressure
- healthy cholesterol levels
- antibacterial and antifungal properties
- immune system boost
- antioxidant activity

- high y-glutamyl peptide (GLUT) content
