Will all garlic supplements prevent the odor?

Just wondering if it's only certain types of garlic pills that prevent garlic breath, or will all of them prevent it? Also was curious if they cause any type of a garlic body odor, and does fresh garlic do that or does it just affect the breath? Thanks

Re: Will all garlic supplements prevent the odor?

unfortunately most good garlic supliments will give you garlic breath. Garlic is one of those supliments that is good for you but can cause body/breath odor.
I know some people take it at night that way most of the odor is gone by the next day. To give you an idea how garlic and most substistances can go through your body in 30 minutes. If you put a couple of drops of garlic oil on the bottoms of your feet, you can smell it on your breath in 30-40 min.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I recently read about how fast it can travel through the body even when applying to the feet. I'd say that garlic is some pretty powerful stuff! I've been eating it raw and adding it to my food for a week or so, on and off. I don't really notice the smell for too long, but I'm sure it's probably there, so I probably will only eat it raw occasionally... I do love it though.
