Enjoy a Healthier Life With the Miracle Powers of Garlic.

Garlic is an amazing food and is well known as a healing plant. Through the ages garlic has been use to cure many things.

I like eating garlic. Sometimes it can be very overwhelming when you approach others. To neutralize the garlic order you can chew parsley, it has high levels of chlorophyll in it which freshens the breath. Also green tea, lemonade and water will be helpful in washing out the odor from the mouth.

When I feel like I'm coming down with a cold or sore throat, I eat garlic on the onset of my symtoms and my symtoms disappear almost immediately. It is the allicin in the garlic that turns into a group of compounds that provide garlic this medicinal punch.

It has been stated by Researchers that garlic is one of nature’s miracle weapons in the on going medical battles with arthritis, cancer and heart disease. Garlic is packed with a least four hundred chemicals including antioxidants, which guard cells from damage and your body from premature aging.

Cardiovascular disease is one of the top health issues in America today. Plaque is the major cause of a heart attack. Research has shown that garlic can unclog blocked arteries and prevent cholesterol and other deposits from sticking to arteries and reducing the plaque formation.

One or two cloves of garlic should be sufficient. Raw garlic is best eating with a vegetable meal. If you choose to take the capsule or pill, it is best taken with a meal.
