I am going to try adding garlic capsules for this upcoming Fall/Winter cootie season.

Does anyone have a brand that they like?

We would really prefer an odorless kind if possible.

Thank you for any suggestions.

There seem to be 3 major brands: Hepapro; BioPure; and Allimax.

Sorry, while odorless does have some good properties, it won't work for the full range of purposes.

I prefer Hepapro by far. Others may prefer the others. Pretty sure links for each are here:

If the odor of garlic is problematic, some say that taking chlorophyll will help (or greens powders high in that). Still, other options to consider:

OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT – LINKS


Even if for the cold/flu season and not exactly for lyme or for use by those with lyme, it's best to consult with a LL ND (naturopathic doctor) or acupuncturist. Those links are in with the sets above.

Though not at all about lyme, this is one of the best reference resources on my bookshelf that has wonderful chapters, many graciously available through their website.

The chlorophyll will indeed help. Get the ChlorOxygen.

In this Spirulina discussion thread, GiGi posted: 15 January, 2013

In 2005, I posted this about the use of Spirulina:

"Please note that Spirulina is quite different from Chlorella. Dr. K. says he always is being asked about Spirulina. He responded during a recent seminar as follows:

"There is one paper that shows that Spirulina is quite good for a r s e nic poisoning; but it's only one paper (publication). On Chlorella we have over 500. When you look at the nutrient content in Spirulina, it is very poor compared to the content in Chlorella. The protein content is lower. N o n e of the precious ingredients are in there.

Spirulina is not an algae. It's a prokaryote. It is a bacterium that happens to use photosynthesis to make energy.
The same is true for Super Blue-green Algae. It's not an algae at all from a biological point of view. Both, Spirulina and Super Blue-green Algae are microorganisms. Chlorella is a plant. I like to move things in a plant way."

Take care.

Take Chlorella 30 minutes before the main meals and at bedtime.

This way chlorella is exactly in that portion of the small intestine where the bile squirts into the gut at the beginning of the meal, carrying with it toxic metals and other toxic waste. These are bound by the chlorella cell wall and carried out via the digestive tract."

Mountain Rose Herbs -

- I get Chlorella & Spirulina here. I mix with Gotu Kola powder and Stinging Nettle powder.

These might also be very helpful for your purposes. Stinging Nettle can help lower cytokines, helpful during a herx but also helpful for anyone with a cold to help them feel better and less achy.

STINGING NETTLE LEAF (not root) - Links set

The herb, STINGING NETTLE may serve to compensate for the reaction by calming the the cytokine storm that is often part of a herx reaction.
