Benefits of Garlic:

Garlic is a popular remedy for helping to boost
the immune system.

Garlic remedies including raw garlic, commercial
p
owders, oil and extracts have been used for
millennia, and are popularly thought to be
effective against the common cold.

Volatile oils prepared from the bulbs can also
act as a decongestant and soothe the bronchioles
and alveoli of the lungs clearing unwanted
mucous.
However, care should be taken to avoid excess
as unwanted side effects including gastric
bloating and aggravated irritable bowel syndrome
have been observed.

Garlic is loaded with vitamins and minerals
like manganese, selenium,
iron, copper, vitamin C,
vitamin B,
potassium, and other antioxidants,
including allicin.


Allicin, a sulphur containing phytonutrient, is
likely to be the source of its
antibacterial
and anti-viral properties.


Allicin also makes garlic smell.
Some products are made "odorless" by aging
the garlic, but this process can also make
the garlic less effective.


Garlic helps boost the immune system and
reduces the severity and length of cold and
flu symptoms.

The results of a 12-week study showed that a garlic
supplement every day reduced the number
of
colds by 63%.

In another study, participants who took a garlic
supplement were more likely to catch a cold than
were those who did not take garlic; thos
e who
used garlic also got over colds faster.

Studies have also reported that the average
length of cold symptoms were reduced from
5 days to a day and a half.

Both raw and cooked garlic impart health benefits,
but raw garlic may be better.
Research shows that raw garlic has a
nti-viral and
anti-bacterial properties that help protect against
colds and flu, for example.

Garlic lowers the risk of heart diseas
e by lowering
total LDL Cholesterol.


Garlic can enhance the body's ability to dissolve
blood clots that would otherwise increase
the
risk of heart attacks by closing the arteries.

Garlic each day helps keep blood pressure at bay.
It's active compounds can significantly reduce
blood pressure comparable to prescriptions.

Significant evidence suggests that garlic can play
a role in the prevention of cancer and the slowing
of its progression.

Garlic’s rich phytochemical content delivers
its potential cholesterol-lowering and cancer
fighting characteristics.
Phytochemicals are chemical compounds found
in plants that protect cells from damage that
lead to cancer.

Garlic can help your iron metabolism.
That's because the Diallyl Sulfides in Garl
ic
can help increase production
of a protein called Ferroportin.


Like many natural remedies, it takes a while
for the benefits of garlic to kick in, because you
have to let the vitamins and minerals build up
in your body.
