Great Garlic!

Although garlic gets a bad rap for causing bad breath, the health benefits definitely outweigh the negatives. The key ingredient in garlic is something called allicin. Allicin is known to have superior properties in four areas: as an antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antioxidant.

Eating garlic regularly will help lower blood pressure, aid in fighting disease by strengthening your immune system, and control blood sugar and blood cholesterol. It may even help fight the risk of stomach and colon cancer.

can also be used to treat several other conditions: poor digestion, low energy, problems with your lungs, and parasites. Due to its antiviral properties, garlic is also used to fight allergies.

If you have a toothache, use garlic! Along with its antibacterial properties, garlic is also a natural analgesic and anesthetic. Apply one clove of crushed garlic to the affected area for relief.

Since garlic fights infections and bacteria, it is a great cure for warts. Simply cut the tip off a fresh clove of garlic and rub the cut area of the clove on the wart for a few seconds.

Repeat every evening before going to bed.

If you are coughing and your respiratory tract is irritated or infected, use garlic!

Because garlic has such a pungent flavor, it really is not pleasing to just chew up a clove and swallow it. If you are not adding it to your foods, you can always find garlic supplements that are just as effective as cooking with it.

Always check with your doctor before starting any kind of supplement.
