Which Garlic?

Nowadays, garlic comes in powder form, and even mixed with some other ingredients which are commercially packed and sold in grocery stores. Garlic is medically proven to be good for our health. No doubt about that.
Does garlic powder pack the same healthy ingredients as the fresh garlic? You might be surprised, but according to a study, while both garlic-eating groups were healthier than those that are on a no-garlic eating group, fresh garlic protected the hearts of those that ate the fresh ones BETTER than those who had dried garlic intake.
Dried garlic loses sulfurous chemical that gives the cloves their aroma which is the main ingredient that makes garlic a healthy intake.
