Who doesn’t love garlic?
I always have fresh garlic cloves on the counter that get roasted by themselves or tossed into other dishes.
I love putting garlic salt and garlic powder on my vegetables and eggs.
Anytime a recipe calls for garlic, I normally put in double if not triple the recommended amount.
Not only does garlic taste good, but it so GOOD for your health.
Garlic is a natural antibiotic. So, the next time you’re feeling down in the dumps, add some garlic to your food. Garlic doesn’t kill the good and bad bacteria in your gut. Garlic actually feeds the good bacteria, helping to boost the digestive and immune systems.
Garlic kills candida (yeast). So many people today suffer from yeast overgrowth in our digestive tracts. Yeast overgrowth is due to consuming too much processed food and sugar. (Yes, sugar feeds yeast.) Yeast infections can lead to allergies, brain fog, weight gain and much more.
Garlic stabilizes the blood sugar. Diabetes and obesity? I’m sure you’ve heard of both. The average diet is filled with refined sugar and sugary drinks. The body becomes insulin resistant leading to obesity and diabetes. But garlic helps to decrease inflammation and increase insulin sensitivity.
Garlic is good for the heart. Because garlic helps stabilize the blood sugar, so cholesterol and plague build up begin to decrease. Garlic allows the blood to flow smoothly, preventing blood clots and high blood pressure.
Garlic promotes healthy lungs. The main ingredient, allicin helps to ease lung congestion and irritation. Less congestion decreases the likelihood of pneumonias and other lung diseases.
