Beat Back Cold and Flus with... Garlic!

Garlic

Story at-a-glance -

  • Garlic has long been hailed for its healing powers, especially against infectious diseases like cold and flu. It has immune boosting effects, and fresh garlic is also a potent antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal agent
  • Studies have demonstrated more than 150 beneficial health effects of garlic, including reducing your risk for heart disease, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and various cancers such as brain, lung and prostate cancer
  • Research has shown that those taking garlic daily for three months had fewer colds than those who took a placebo, and, when they did come down with a cold, the duration of illness was shorter
  • Garlic must be used fresh to give you optimal health benefits. To stimulate the process that catalyzes the formation of allicin, compress a fresh clove with a spoon prior to swallowing it, or put it through your juicer with other veggies
