How garlic has made me a new man
I take the Swanson odor-controlled garlic for heart health. I think it has made a difference in my overall health. I'm 73 years old and my paternal grandfather lived to 97 and my father to 95, and they both ate lots of garlic. Besides feeling better, I'm no longer embarrassed with obnoxious smelling flatulation because my gas now smells like gardenias.

Easy to swallow and effective garlic supplement. I can smell the tablets but there's no smell on my breath. Very happy with them.

Everything I hoped for...
This was everything I had hoped for in a garlic supplement. There is no smell or bad breath associated with taking these, although you can indeed taste the garlic when you initially take the pills. The price is a very competitive one, and overall its an excellent value!

Smells And Tastes Like Garlic!
These may be "odor controlled" but they are not odor free. They smell like garlic and taste like it and make you burp garlic. I LOVE everything I've ever purchased from Swanson with these being the rare exception. Terrible.

I eat before I take my vitamins and have never had a problem. Swanson's has a great value.

You can taste the garlic the next day. It has poor odor control.

no oder,no aftertaste Have use the product for several years with good results. I also don't have to use a lap blanket any more when I watch tv at night i.seem to be warmer in the winter but not uncomfortable in the summer.

Good product for the money. It is not enteric coated, so it starts dissolving a minute or two after you take it. Compared to other enteric coated brands,though this is an absolute steal,so I'm staying with this.

"odor control" is much different than "odorless"
Having been used to "odorless" capsules these "odor controlled" tablets were a little hard to get used to and left a garlic taste in my mouth.

They definitely have a strong smell and frequently have a garlic after-taste. When I first started taking them I had a dinner with quite a bit of garlic and the combination of the two left me with what I called "vampire killing garlic breath". I am currently looking for something with better odor control.

Great Garlic Product
I love this garlic supplement. This is an absolute daily necessity. I couldn't do without it. It's also a great value for the price.

in bad taste
This garlic is suppose to be odor controlled,but it isnt.When I sweat I smell it,it even smells bad

Tried the garlic oil before which repeated on me a lot.
This Odor-Controlled Garlic does not repeat , I have trouble with any garlic but this one is great for me.
If you don`t like the taste buy in caps rather than tabs.

Odor-Controlled Garlic Tablets
This product works okay but has a lot of flavor on the way down. Don't take this on an empty stomach but with food or after eating. I much prefer the Odor-Controlled Garlic Capsules to this because the flavor isn't objectionable, is easy to swallow and is a whole garlic product which I believe to be the most effective. Look to get the Garlic Oil if you want a product that is the lest likely to repeat on you especially if you aren't going to take it with substantial food and drink.

I LOVE real garlic and would put it in everything I eat if I could. HOWEVER, eating several raw cloves of garlic is preferable to taking these tablets. The odor is far greater than actual garlic and repeats on you for several hours, which makes me feel nauseous.
I will never buy this again. I recommend you try and get garlic in your diet from a different source than this one!

its a pritty good product . the only thing i wasn't happy with is i could taste the garlic, and every time i took it my wife would ask me what i ate with alot of garlic. other then the odor i would recomend it to a friend.

This is a great product and I am very comfortable using it every day. The only thing I would say to people is that odor controlled does not mean NO odor. Also, it can be a little harsh on the stomache if taken before eating. Since I take mine in the morning I take it with a glass of milk and it does wonders! I would recommend it to anyone who uses garlic suppliments on a regular basis.
