What is Garlic Good For? Benefits and Medicinal Uses for Garlic

August 13, 2019

What is garlic good for? Benefits and medicinal uses for garlic Garlic is usually used as a spice in foods,
but people don’t know that is can also be good for your health. The main ingredient in garlic is allicin,
which has antibacterial, antivirus, antifungal, and antioxidant properties, and are very good
for keeping your body healthy. Garlic is also full of vitamins and nutrients
like vitamins B1, B6, and vitamin C, manganese calcium, copper, selenium, and others. Eating a little garlic every day can really
help, and guard, your health. Here are the top ten ways garlic can add to
your health. Improves Heart Health
Garlic is a great food for heart health. It helps blood flow, lowers cholesterol, and
stops heart disease. It also slows atherosclerosis, the hardening
of the arteries, which can lead to heart attack or stroke. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves every
morning to help heart health and stop heart disease. Controls Hypertension
Garlic can help lower blood pressure, mainly systolic blood pressure. Garlic works as a vasodilator, helping to
widen blood vessels and let blood flow better. People with high blood pressure should eat
a few raw garlic cloves every day on an empty stomach. , if you do not like the taste of garlic,
drink a cup of milk after eating it. You can also take garlic supplements. Reduces Arthritis Pain
Garlic also eases pain and other signs of rheumatoid arthritis. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
help bring down swelling that comes with arthritis. It also has diallyl disulfide that helps lessen
enzymes that hurt cartilage. To soothe pain from arthritis in swelling
and aching joints, use garlic in your diet all the time. It is best to eat it on an empty stomach. Boosts Immunity
Garlic has a lot of vitamins C and B6, and the minerals manganese calcium and magnesium. These nutrients help the immune system work
better. They also help the body take in minerals. Garlic also has antioxidant and antimicrobial
properties. These help the body guard itself from germs
and fight infections. Treats Cough and Cold
Because garlic kills bad bacteria and viruses, it is a great cure for cough and cold. It can also make sure that upper respiratory
infections don’t hit as bad. Fights Fungal Infection
Garlic also helps the body kill fungi and fight fungal infections that cause ringworm,
athlete’s foot, and jock itch. It also helps fight candida. Combats Allergies
Because garlic kills viruses and brings down swelling, it can help the body fight different
types of allergies. It can also lessen swelling in the airway
caused by allergic rhinitis. Cures Toothache
Garlic can also help cure toothaches, because it kills bacteria and eases pain. Just put a piece of crushed garlic clove or
some garlic oil on the aching tooth and the gum around it to make it feel better. But remember that garlic can be bothersome
to the gums, so be careful how you do it. Aids Digestion
Garlic keeps the stomach running smoothly, which helps with digestion. It also helps the stomach make gastric juices
which help digestion. Inhibits Cancer
Garlic can stop the body from getting cancer, mainly in the digestive system and lungs. It can also stop tumors from getting bigger,
and can make some tumors get smaller. This is because it has allyl sulfur that can
slow cancerous cells from growing. Eating garlic all the time is important for
people who have had cancer in their family, to lower the risk of them getting many types
of cancer. For people trying to guard against cancer,
garlic supplements don’t work as well as raw or cooked garlic. If you like the video, give it a thumbs†up

    Garlic has sulfonhydroxyl in it, which is a deadly poison. Gangsters and soldiers used to rub their bullets with it before they fired, so if you were nicked, it would kill you. Organic gardeners use garlic now that they can't get DDT. It kills everything. Garlic also damages brain cells, which causes desynchronisation of the left and right brain hemispheres. Pilots are not permitted to ingest garlic before their flights because it slows down their reaction times. Do not touch garlic! It is not a health food.

    Raw garlic can make holes in your stomach lining over months and later you will develop ulcers and the bacteria , parasites can get to your blood system …if you eat garlic make sure you take it with food or fat so you don't damage your stomach lining . if you need to lose weight never use honey , stevia , or sugar they will bring your insulin up and you gain weight .Ginger is a better option , ginger doesn't make holes in your stomach , Ginger kill fungus and cancer cells .

    A doctor told me I could eat it raw half an hour before bed and it would still be OK and give the same benefit as eating in the morning on an empty stomach. I asked how he knew and he said he'd been doing it for almost twenty years and hadn't got ill once. So I have been doing it for almost a week now and wonder when I will start seeing the benefits and smelling of it.

    For as long as I can remember I have used LOTS of garlic in my cooking. For the past year, I have been eating 2 or more cloves of fresh garlic every day. As a witness to its benefits, my son has had bronchitis extremely bad for the last 3 weeks. Always before I would get it too. Thankfully, this winter I haven't so much as had a scratchy throat! I'm certain it's because I've been eating fresh garlic every day. If only my son had listened to mom, I don't think he'd be so sick now. I also eat fresh grated ginger and a teaspoon of turmeric, along with crushed black pepper, every day on a fresh fruit salad…delicious!
