Botanical name: Allium sativum
Snow Mountain garlic, or Kashmiri Lehsun is a subspecies of garlic. This Himalayan wonder cultivated in the mountains of Jammu and Kashmir is grown at high altitudes, protecting it from pollution and other environmental adulterations. Growing amidst clean air aids in its antifungal and antimicrobial action for an improved immunomodulatory response. Historically used by mountaineers for increased ATP levels and detoxifying the body, the antioxidant properties of the phenolic acid also help against free radical damage. It is indigenously used for its remedial health benefits against breathing discomforts and maintaining body temperatures.
