How much garlic should I use in the mountain kitchen during backpacking camps?
I'm asking from the perspective of the person who wants to plan such a camp and the menu on it. Walking a lot with a heavy backpack, often in bad weather condition, and sleeping outside when the nights can be cold is a very high effort for the body. Garlic stimulates the immune system, which in such situation is very important.
On the other hand, large amounts of garlic may increase the risk of bleeding by thinning the blood: http://www.digitalnaturopath.com/treat/T22977.html. However, it is not stated how much that large amount is.
I'm considering a daily dose of garlic for the participants. For myself at home I'm adding one clove of garlic to dinner, so I think that should be a daily portion for the participant. But many people suggest it is too much.
So, my question is, what portion of garlic would be consider safe, and still have a positive impact on immune system? Is the one clove per person per day too much, too little, or just enough?
