Garlic is one of the best and great foods on the earth, even though its unique taste. It has many different benefits for health and we will mention the most of these benefits later on this article.
According to The University of Maryland Medical Center:
“…garlic is used to help prevent heart disease, including atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries (plaque buildup in the arteries that can block the flow of blood and may lead to heart attack or stroke), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and to boost the immune system.
Antioxidants like those found in garlic fight off free radicals, and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage caused over time.”
Note that it is best to use it raw, since heat decentralizes allicin, its active ingredients, chop them, leave them aside for 15 minutes, and then consume them. To reap all its health benefits, consume it on an empty stomach, in order to absorb all its nutrients.
In a combination with honey, it will optimize your health and boost your energy levels. Just chop 2-3 garlic cloves finely, and then add a tablespoon of honey. Stir well and consume on a daily basis.
Moreover, you must try the following garlic flu tonic:
5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon ginger, chopped
2 red chili peppers, coarsely chopped
1 lemon, juiced
Raw and unfiltered apple cider vinegar
Make sure you wear gloves in order to protect your hands from irritations and rashes due to the powerful natural oils of the ingredients.
Then, in a Mason jar, add the chopped garlic on a layer, then, add a layer of the hot peppers, add the ginger, pour the lemon juice over them, and finally, pour the apple cider vinegar. Leave a centimeter of free space from the rim, seal well, and store the jar in the pantry.
