I thought garlic and onion killed bacteria, so why are they excluded?Updated 2 years ago

Onions and garlic contain a nutrient called allicin. This product kills yeast, fungus, and bacteria. However, it is typically used in a nutritional supplement form, which is an extract and not the whole food. If someone with yeast or bacterial imbalance uses the whole food, the prebiotic fibers can feed yeast and bacteria, causing symptoms such as gas or bloating.
