So today we talk about another one of my "go-to" favorite . . . and that would be . . . "garlic"
As we all know . . . "garlic" has an organic sulfur compound called "allicin" and that's what gives its pungent smell and makes it a healthy addition to any meal.
Garlic also contains antioxidants that protect the body against cell damage and aging.
It boosts the immune system and is traditionally used to treat the common cold, coughs, constipation, asthma and infections. It lowers the risk of colon cancer, reduces cholesterol and blood pressure levels, and reduces the risk of common brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
It's an anti-inflammatory which can prevent cartilage damage from arthritis and improves cardiovascular health. Research has stated that red blood cells turn the sulfur in garlic into hydrogen sulfide gas that expands our blood vessels making it easier to regulate blood pressure.
Garlic can even protect us from food poisoning like salmonella and E.coli due to its antioxidant and "antibacterial" properties.
Okay . . . so remember how I'm always talking about the "bad" bacteria they lurks deep within us and wrecks havoc to our body, weight and health . . .
Well . . . garlic's "antibacterial" properties can also kill this bacteria to help us gain control of our health and ailments.
Garlic can also increase longevity due to its ability to reduce heavy metal toxicity in the body.
Okay . . . so since we've been talking about losing weight . . . How does garlic help???
Well . . . It can boost your energy level and metabolism which burns more calories and is an appetite suppressant which keeps you fuller longer and prevents overeating.
And if you need a little spice in your life . . . garlic can improve ones sex drive. This is due to the presence of "allicin" in the garlic . . .
You see . . . it has the ability to increase the blood flow to the sexual organs in both men and women.
So get your garlic on people . . .
Alright . . . now how much garlic should we eat???
Well . . . eating a clove of raw garlic in the morning can help get the body's detox process started. And you can actually eat garlic (1 clove) up to 3 times per day.
But . . . the thing we must know to get the full benefit from garlic is . . .
It must be "activated" . . . meaning . . . it must be crushed and sit for 10 minutes to be fully activated so we get the full power of its healing properties.
