Garlic Health Benefits
What makes Garlic so great?
Go open up your medicine cabinet, chances are you don’t have Garlic in there, but you should!
And here is why...
Fresh Garlic has alliin, allicin, alliinase & unique sulfur compounds. Allicin and the sulfur compounds of garlic are the ingredients responsible for garlic being Mother Nature’s antibiotic, anti-viral and fungicide.
One component of garlic, allicin attacks more than 23 kinds of bacteria, including staph and salmonella, as well as 60 types of fungus and yeast, is effective against all of 17 most dangerous fungi (Candida albicans included) expels tapeworms, and restores sensation in areas affected by leprosy.
Hypoglycemia means low blood sugar the opposite of diabetes. Garlic seems to have the same effect on hypoglycemia has it does on diabetes. Demonstrating several of the common sulfur-containing compounds a special sugar metabolism regulating factors which help normalize both high and low blood sugar levels. Garlic is an excellent detoxifier; it improves the general metabolism and has a stimulating effect on the liver. It is medically known that the liver plays a key role in diabetes and hypoglycemia.
Garlic has so many uses. It can be used for high cholesterol, parasites, respiratory problems, poor digestion, low energy, earaches, flu, colds, herpes/cold sores, and yeast infections. Studies suggest that regularly eating garlic helps lower blood pressure, controls blood sugar and blood cholesterol, and boosts the immune system. It has also been found to reduce the risk of esophageal, stomach, and colon cancer. Garlic is s natural penicillin, it has only 1% of the impact of synthetic penicillin but it is more effective with gram-negative bacteria than penicillin.
Bacteria shown to be susceptible to garlic in the test tube include species from Staphylococcus, Escherichia, Proteus, Salmonella, Providencia, Citrobacter, Klebsiella, Hafnia, Aeromonas, Vibrio and Bacillus genera. Fungi demonstrated also to be susceptible to garlic in lab tests include the general Microspores, Epidermophyton, Trichophyton, Rhodotorula, Torulopsis, Trichosporon, Cryptococcus neoformans, and Candida, including Candida albicans. It is reported that garlic is more effective against pathogenic yeasts than nystatin, especially Candida albicans. Equally important, garlic has been known for its anticancer and tumor properties.
It’s not recommended to take garlic in its raw form, since the enzyme necessary to produce allicin may be destroyed in the stomach before having any positive effect.

You can eat garlic raw, but it tends to burn the throat. But heavily adding it to food is the best way to get more of it into your diet.
You can also roast fresh garlic easily. Just remove the paper from a full bulb of garlic, while leaving the cloves intact. Slive 1/4 of the top off, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 30-40 minutes in an oven set to 275. When it is golden brown, it is done. You can then remove the gloves and eat them plain or add to salad or crackers. Delicious!
