Garlic is popular all over the world because it’s both a flavorful seasoning and a versatile vegetable with many health benefits. Even after SHTF, carefully prepared garlic has incredible uses. (h/t to BeansBulletsBandagesAndYou.com.)
Some studies have shown that garlic contains certain compounds with potent anti-tumor actions in cell culture and animal tests. But does that mean that the herb, whether as a food or as a supplement, has strong anti-cancer properties?
There are also reports suggesting that garlic can strengthen immune function. Garlic can boost the activities of certain immune cells while there are some garlic compounds that can simulate compounds which the immune system needs to communicate with its different parts.
Research also suggests that there are compounds in garlic that can halt microbial growth. These compounds work on microbes that attack plants and some that may attack humans. This implies that garlic can indeed boost the immune system. But it’s tricky to determine if these effects are reliable since they aren’t triggered 100 percent of the time.

For example, culture tests were promising but eating garlic didn’t have any effect on women with fungal vaginal infections.
Regardless of these unconfirmed garlic health benefits, the vegetable can still effectively improve blood lipid, blood pressure, and blood sugar. If consumed regularly, garlic can help more than half of Americans older than 50, along with over 30 percent of adults in general.
Even if results vary when it comes to these health benefits, the studies on garlic and its effects produced statistically significant results despite the small sample sizes and good placebo controls. This indicates that garlic is indeed as potent as its reputation suggests.
When SHTF, every prepper may do well to cultivate garlic in their gardens and store some garlic bulbs in their food stockpile.
