Garlic Boost™ is a 100% USDA certified organic source of the holistic phenomenon of “Garlic”. When added to your aquarium all breeds of fish are attracted to their food supply and even problem eaters take on increased nourishment. Our organic garlic is a natural anti-fungal agent which enhances the immunology all species. The allicin component of garlic has been repeatedly proven to ward off bacterial infections by blocking the enzyme reactions in sulfhydryl (SH) groups, or thiols.
The study of ancient history provides many uses of the herb “Garlic” in the treatment of disease of various types. In more modern times, there are discoveries through scientific methods that garlic indeed has a direct effect as an “Antimicrobial”.
Garlic is seen mostly as a “Chelator” helping to bond “Metals”. These metals often lead to the attraction of non-beneficial organisms such as bacteria and parasites, among them “Ich”.
As an “Organic Chelator” qualified observations have been made as to the improvement of diverse species in quarantined tanks. A common practice is species separation for disease control during the acclimation period. Garlic will assist in stress relief causing better nutritional intake and increased metabolism. In established tanks, Garlic causes “Chelation” of excess metals that can result in inadvertent stress related problems to the inhabitants of the aquarium.
The addition of an organic de-nitrification agent in Garlic Boost Plus increases it’s effectiveness by naturally preconditioning the ammonias within the aquarium. This action enhances the Redox reaction (oxidation reduction) and almost immediately breaks down the ammonias into nitrites and nitrates, which then biologically dissipate. It will also greatly reduce the need for water changes.
