Wellness Wednesday on Empty Streets: Benefits of Garlic

Posted 6:45 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: ,
I have been using garlic a lot in almost every meal that I cook especially since I love to cook pasta and stir fry meals. A lot of us already know that garlic has many benefits and one of the most highlighted benefit is that of its ability to fight bad cholesterol in the human body. On the mystical side it is said to ward off bad spirits and vampires hehe. Though is this the only health benefit this particularly strong, sometimes pungent little vegetable could have? The answer my dear friends is no. Amazingly enough Garlic has a lot more to offer than what one already knows and amazingly enough this is a vegetable that is commonly found anywhere and is easily available to anyone of what ever social status.

Here are some other benefits that one could get with Garlic:
  • Garlic lowers blood pressure a little.
  • Garlic lowers LDL Cholesterol a little.
  • Garlic helps reduce atherosclerotic buildup (plaque) within the arterial system. One recent study shows this effect to be greater in women than men.
  • Garlic lowers or helps to regulate blood sugar.
  • Garlic helps to prevent blood clots from forming, thus reducing the possibility of strokes and thromboses (It may not be good for hemophiliacs).
  • Garlic helps to prevent cancer, especially of the digestive system, prevents certain tumors from growing larger and reduces the size of certain tumors.
  • Garlic helps to remove heavy metals such as lead and mercury from the body.
  • Raw Garlic is a potent natural antibiotic and, while far less strong than modern antibiotics, can still kill some strains of bacteria that have become immune or resistant to modern antibiotics.
  • Garlic has anti-fungal and anti-viral properties.
  • Garlic dramatically reduces yeast infections due to Candida species.
  • Garlic has anti-oxidant properties and is a source of selenium.

  • So before you start cooking garlic for your next meal, it is definitely good to ponder and be grateful that such a wonderful herbal remedy is easily available for everyone and is delicious to consume - though I have to admit you have to brush your teeth and gargle after eating a lot as you wouldn't want to have garlic breath hehehe.

    Also for those that are more visual and would like to know more about the benefits of garlic from a notable source here is a video of what Garlic can provide to those that consume it.
