Garlic is one of the most popular natural foods nowadays, and it is an essential part in most of the cuisines in the world. Despite its unique flavor, garlic is incredibly effective in treating various health conditions, especially if consumed raw.
Garlic is believed to be able to prevent and treat almost all diseases. It effectively prevents atherosclerosis, heart attacks, coronary heart disease, and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
It also heals minor ailments like bug bites, common cold, flu, hay fever, fungal infections, and traveler’s diarrhea. Garlic efficiently controls the symptoms of diabetes, enlarged prostate, and osteoarthritis. Furthermore, its ability to eliminate toxins and strengthen the immunity is one of its most important properties.
In combination with ginger and onion, garlic detoxifies the body after chemotherapy.
For best results, use garlic in its raw form, since heat decentralizes allicin, its active ingredient. You should simply crush and chop the cloves, leave them for 15 minutes and then add it to your food.
