You probably know that cooking with garlic makes foods taste great. But garlic is almost like a miniature medicine cabinet!
Research shows garlic is helpful for:
- Reducing heart disease
- Preventing hardening of your arteries (atherosclerosis)
- Reducing blood clots
- Lowering elevated blood pressure levels
- Curing yeast infections
- Acting as a natural antioxidant
Garlic is also a great remedy for battling cold viruses. So be generous when you spoon out the garlic during food preparation. Or, if you worry about the strong scent—garlic capsules work well, too!
