Health Tip – Mar. 19 – A Bit About Garlic

Filed under: Dee Dee |

Garlic is a culinary mainstay that provides a host of health benefits. It can help improve overall cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and decreases clot formation, thus reducing the risk of stroke and heart attack. It also has antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, making it especially helpful in combating respiratory infections.

A simple way to treat a cold is to eat two cloves of raw garlic at the onset of symptoms. Chop or crush the cloves to release the allicin (a sulfur compound with strong antibiotic effects) and put them on a sandwich or mix them in applesauce.
