The Healh Benefits of Garlic - A Natural Way To Ward off Colds and Flu
Why I learned to Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Garlic
There is a lot of good publicity going around about Garlic.
Until recently, I only ate garlic when it was a seasoning in spaghetti sauce. Now, I am trying to incorporate it into something I eat at least once a day.
Health Benefits of Garlic:
-Garlic is thought of, by some folks, as a great secret of curing the common cold. This is because garlic is regarded as being both an antibiotic and antibacterial agent. Some people say that those who start taking a lot of garlic when exposed to a cold or when starting to show symptoms of a cold are likely to suffer much less than those who don't take garlic. Hey, I tried it a couple of weeks ago and I felt like it helped. Really. Other people at work were sick for three or four more days longer than I was. Why not?
-Because garlic is an antibacterial agent, it is thought to help treat acne.
- Garlic is regarded as being heart-healthy! There is a rumor that Garlic can help reduce cholesterol levels.
- Garlic is said to reduce the risk of certain cancers.
Add Garlic To Your Diet:
- A great way to use garlic is to buy it pre-chopped or minced at the grocery store, because peeling garlic is a pain. You can usually find this in little jars hanging out by the produce section, near herbs like basil and dill.
-Take your jar o' garlic and add a bit to salads, to pasta sauces, on top of pizza (be it ordered, frozen, or english muffin style).
-make garlic bread! just take a piece o' bread, spread some butter or faux butter on top, and then put on some chopped or minced garlic and toast. MMMMMmmmm....so good.
