You probably often heard that Garlic is great for your health but do you know why it’s so great? Garlic is a widely recognized health enhancing supplement and it is packed with vitamins and nutrients. Few weeks ago my mother was having trouble with eczema, a nutritionist she talked to told her to eat some fresh garlic, one sector each day. Just chop it into little bits, then put it between slices of bread and eat. Just make sure to drink a big glass of water with it – it’s important. If you take little bites and swallow it with water, you don’t need to chew it much then you can skip the garlic breath. After taking this for a week my moms eczema got better. It hasn’t disappeared completely but the problem areas are fewer, smaller and not as itchy. Eating a raw garlic gives the maximum effect, a cooked garlic does not have the same health benefits as raw garlic cloves – but all is not lost. You will still get some of the health benefits of garlic if you eat cooked garlic – as long as it’s not cooked in a microwave.

Because of its distinct taste and aroma, garlic is a commonly used spice. Garlic is great for cooking because it gives a wonderful, tasty flavor, however people often avoid eating garlic cause of the bad garlic breath. Good advice against this bad breath is drinking lemon juice or eating a few slices of lemon, that will stop garlic breath.

      I love garlic and it’s the main spice when I cook. I also started to eat it raw and drink glass of lemon juice mixed with water – just to make sure that I don’t get garlic breath.

    Good news, Garlic promotes the overall well-being of the heart and immune systems and helps maintain healthy blood circulation. The active component in garlic is the sulfur compound called allicin. Allicin is powerful as an antibiotic and a effective agent that helps the body to inhibit the ability of germs to grow and reproduce.
