#Garlic is undoubtedly one of the most powerful natural antibiotics and has been found to be especially powerful in the fight of 14 different infections.
Most of its medicinal qualities are due to the presence of a sulfur compound known as allicin, which also gives its pungent odor. It effectively protects against pathogenic bacteria, viruses, parasites, antibiotic-resistant MRSA, yeast infections, and #cancer. When ingested, allicin turns into sulfenic acid, which is the fastest acting free radical eliminator.
The best way to reap the #health benefits offered by this vegetable is to consume it raw, and press or smash the garlic clove, wait for 5 minutes for allicin to become active and eat it.
Therefore, studies have shown that this versatile natural cure:
– Lowers blood pressure
– Prevents blood clots
– Fights vascular inflammation
– Dilates blood vessels to boost circulation
– Prevents oxidation of cholesterol
– Positively modulates blood lipids
– Retards progression of arterial plaque
– Lowers white adipose tissue, and increases white adipose tissue around the heart muscle
– Prevents dysfunction of arteries
Researchers have also found that garlic has potent anti-infective effects, and destroys the following 14 infections:
Helicobacter Pylori infection
Candida (Yeast) infection
Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)
Viral Infections: Herpes Simplex 1 and 2, Parainfluenza virus type 3, vaccinia virus, vesicular stomatitis virus and human rhinovirus type 2
Group B Streptococcus Infection
Thrush (Fungal overgrowth in the oral cavity)
Pseudomonas Aerigonosima, including drug-resistant strains
Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, multi-drug resistant
Researchers admit that these findings are impressive, but they are apparently only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the medicinal properties of garlic. What’s best, it causes no side-effects and does not affect the beneficial microorganisms in our body.
