Garlic is one of the most powerful and beneficial vegetables in the world, which can be found in any kitchen. Despite giving the foods a good flavour, it is also beneficial for treating a lot of health issues.
We normally consume it cooked, but raw garlic is more powerful and natural remedy.
As some researches show, raw garlic is very powerful in treating heart health. It reduces high blood pressure and cholesterol and in that way it prevents coronary heart disease and the risk of heart failure. It is also helpful in reducing the effects of atherosclerosis. Garlic can also relieve common health issues including hay fever, traveler’s diarrhea, cold and flu, bug bites and fungal infections. If you regularly consume garlic it can reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis, diabetes and an enlarged prostate.
Another powerful thing about it is that it can help in boosting your immunity and will also improve the ability of your body for removing toxins. If you combine garlic with ginger and onion, it will also support detox from chemotherapy.
How to use it?
As we mentioned before in this article, eating raw garlic is more beneficial than cooked, because its active ingredient, allicin stays in its natural form. For better health results, crush or chop a garlic clove 15 minutes before your meal. This will activate a chemical reaction that makes allicin more easily absorbed by your body.
Garlic can also help you in boosting your health when you eat it on an empty stomach. It is hard to absorb and digest all the nutrients from garlic if your stomach is full.
Another great way to consume garlic is mixing it with honey because of its pungent taste:
– Chop 2-3 cloves of garlic nicely;
– Mix this with 1 tsp. honey;
-Take this remedy every day. In a week, you’ll feel much better and stronger.
