What is AIM Bear Paw Garlic®?
Bear Paw Garlic® is a unique form of garlic. It is not derived from
Allium sativum, the species of garlic sold in supermarkets and used
in garlic supplements.
Rather, AIM Bear Paw Garlic® comes from Allium ursinum, a wild species
of garlic found in central Europe.
Unlike A. sativum, A. ursinum has never been successfully cultivated.
(Apparently, the eighth-century ruler Charlemagne attempted to cultivate
the plant for medicinal purposes, but there is no record of his success.)
A. ursinum is found in areas of damp woods and wooded ravines and
flourishes in the hills and mountains of central Europe. Its name is
derived from the claim that bears, after awakening from winter hibernation,
consume wild garlic to regain strength (ursinum is Latin for “bear”).
Although most of us think of the distinctive garlic bulb and cloves
when considering garlic, the active substances in A. ursinum are found
in its green leaves.
Although largely unknown in the United States, in 1989, A. ursinum
was called “the new star” of garlic in the German health journal Therapiewoche
(Therapy Week), and in 1992, was declared the European medicinal “Plant
of the Year” by the Association for the Protection and Research on European
Alpine wild garlic has high levels of at least three compounds that
are known to maintain healthy blood pressure levels. This aspect of
wild garlic is under study at Georgetown University Medical Center.
