You might need a mint or two after eating this super food, but garlic has some pretty good benefits, other than warding off vampires (and first dates). Since ancient history, garlic has been known for it’s amazing healing properties. It’s one of the oldest known plants in the world and it’s been used to treat ailments since way before your mom was born.
Best news about it: it’s still really good for you! Garlic serves as a natural antibiotic and because it’s natural, garlic doesn’t diminish the immune system or the good bacteria in your body like pharmaceutical antibiotics. I often recommend garlic drops for ear infections — sometimes moms look at me funny — but believe me, it works. Daily doses of this stuff can serve as a decongestant too; fighting off illnesses like the common cold and flu.
And if that isn’t enough for you, garlic also joins the rest of the super food group in combating cancer and heart disease. With it’s protein, vitamins and minerals, garlic can keep you feeling healthy and looking good.
There you have it. Garlic cloves coming right up…(don’t forget your toothpaste).
Here’s a recipe to get you going: Garlic Chicken
