Garlic is one of the most widely used ingredients in almost every cuisine around the globe. It has an excellent taste, gives flavor to every dish and on top of it all it’s health beneficial.

It can help you lower high blood pressure and cholesterol, prevent coronary heart disease and heart attack. It’s also very beneficial in reducing the effects of atherosclerosis.

Garlic can also help you manage the symptoms of osteoarthritis, diabetes, and an enlarged prostate. It’s an excellent immune system booster and can give you a full body detox. Moreover, if you mix it with onion and ginger it can alleviate chemo side-effects.

How to use garlic?
It is best to consume it raw because its active ingredient – allicin loses its properties if it’s thermally processed. Crush and slice the cloves and leave it aside for 15 minutes before you eat it. When you crush the cloves, it activates a reaction that increases the allicin’s bio-availability.
Eat garlic on an empty stomach because it’s easier for your body to absorb the nutrients when your stomach is not full.
