Rated 1 out of 5 by MOTHEROFLITTLE A Real Stinker
My husband has taken Kyolic garlic for years but to save money I bought this one. Big Mistake! He smelled so bad his students were bringing him toothpaste and mouthwash. He thought they were just being mean. In the car one morning I got a whiff and told him it was coming from this garlic. Threw it away, went back to Kyolic and no more smell. This product is a real stinker!

Bought 2 bottles of these and I'm hardheaded. So I had to take 4 tablets in 4 days before I realized I had to throw these in the trash. Heartburn is unbelievable, smell makes you sick. Been taking garlic for years and this is a first, that being said, my first bad order from Swanson and I'll continue using them for my supplements.

Rated 2 out of 5 by chautauqua Sorry I ordered it!
I was trying to get a garlic capsule for my husband that didn't have him tasting garlic all day. This definitely wasn't it, so I returned it. Really appreciate Swanson's return policy!

This is called odor-controlled but there is a terrible odor with use. The whole room you are in will smell. Yes, your friends will notice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ariasnonna Swanson's Odor Controlled Garlic
I am an herbalist. In my profession, we use scent as a means of determining the freshness and the active abilities of herbs, ie....not much smell, not much good. So, having explained that, I have to say that this garlic is not odorless, nor is it tasteless. You can smell it when you put it in your mouth and taste it for a little while after you swallow it, especially if you belch. But, in my humble opinion, that would make this garlic better than one that you can't smell.

I am not a continuous user of garlic but I believe and its potential. When I think of it I buy it from Swanson's because of Swanson's good name and good value

Garlic and cayenne are 2 herbal products that I would never omit taking on a daily basis. Swanson makes it convenient and economical to take these herbal supplements.

Odor control was the issue

Rated 1 out of 5 by ccdenney I recommend SCHIFF instead
people complained about my bad breath, the odor controll did not work for me, I tried another from this website made by SCHIFF with a red cap on the bottle and it works much better for no garlic smell/odor from by breath.

I like the convenience of taking garlic daily and knowing it is deodorized. Garlic is good for you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JOHN6581 WILL NOT BUY AGAIN
THE PRODUCT SWANSON ODOR CONTROLLED GARLIC WAS ADVERTISED AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO KYOLIC BRAND GARLIC. IT EMITS GARLIC ODOR FROM THE BODY. KYOLIC BRAND DOES NOT, I CAN ONLY TAKE ONE CAPSULE EVERY OTHER DAY.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kiah Good and bad
I was happy with the garlic for the purpose I used it for. It seems to be very good quality as I expect from Swanson. However it has caused me to belch garlic and has caused pretty bad heartburn. I was taking it twice a day and going down to once a day relieved those problems quite a bit. I am not sure how much is the garlic and how much is my own stomach sensitivities. I would recommend it anyway because it does work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MisterPill Odor-Controlled Garlic Capsules
I prefer the Odor-Controlled Garlic Capsules because they are economical, the flavor isn't objectionable, are easy to swallow and is a whole garlic product which I believe to be the most effective. I only recommend these to you if you are going to take them with adequate food and drink to prevent them from repeating on you. If not, go with the Garlic Oil 1500 mg Equivalent which is least likely to repeat on you. Stay away from the Odor-Controlled Garlic Tablets which have considerable flavor."

Rated 2 out of 5 by momof2 good garlic but....
My family takes garlic on a regular basis. This is really the only one so far that has upset my stomach. It is effective garlic just not the best side effect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JonnieB Ordor control?
This may be a good product but the ordor control is not adequate. Whenever I take it my husband says I have garlic breath the rest of the day.
