The Benefits of Garlic

689-05611626Garlic is known for being a health booster, but we also know Garlic gets a bad rap. All you need to do is mention the phrase ‘garlic breath’ and someone’s bound to run in the other direction.  Yet, while its reputation for creating sulfurous breath strong enough to knock someone off their feet, Garlic is one of the most valuable and versatile foods on the planet.

Here are just a few benefits we at Rizzuto’s think is worth talking about.

Studies show that less than one clove a day may cut prostate-cancer risk in half, and other research links garlic to a lowered incidence of stomach, colon and possibly breast cancers.

Garlic also acts as a good cold medication, decongestant and expectorant. It is a surprisingly good source of vitamins C, B6 and the minerals selenium and manganese all of which have long been associated with immune system boosting as well as other benefits.

Also, because Allicin is the most potent substance found in garlic and this has been shown to not only lower blood pressure insulin and triglyceride levels in laboratory animals fed a sugar rich diet, but also to prevent weight gain.

 

Other benefits of Garlic include:

  • Detoxification
  • Boosting the immune system
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Heart Health
  • Toothache
  • Repel mosquitoes
  • Warts
  • Earache
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Stuffy nose or nasal congestion

Here is a quick tip for anyone cooking with Garlic. You don’t want to  cook garlic immediately after crushing or chopping it, but to maximize the health benefits, you should crush the garlic at room temperature and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. That triggers an enzyme reaction that boosts the healthy compounds in garlic.

EAT YOUR GARLIC IT’S GOOD FOR YOU, AND IF YOU AND YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER ENJOY GARLIC TOGETHER NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT GARLIC BREATH!
