Health Benefits Of Garlic

Here are just a few reasons to add 2-3 cloves of garlic to your daily diet!

  • Garlic cures colds and can reduce the length of cold symptoms by up to 70%. Taking the spice daily  also prevents the onset of the cold and flu (3).
  • Lowers blood pressure by relaxing smooth muscles and dilating blood vessels. One study found that 600 to 1,500mg of aged garlic was just as effective as the drug Atenolol (4).
  • Prevents heart disease by lowering serum levels of LDL cholesterol (5).
  • Fights infection, effectively working against antibiotic-resistant bacteria (6).
  • Prevents cancer risk by up to 44%.

And that’s not all, the spice also boosts weight loss, prevents hormone-related bone loss and has antifungal, antiviral, and antiparasitic properties (7,8,9).
