Garlic

Garlic is one of the most valuable foods on the planet.

It’s been used since biblical times and is mentioned in the literature of the ancient Hebrews, Greeks, Babylonians, Romans, and Egyptians.

The builders of the pyramids supposedly ate garlic daily for endurance and strength.

Garlic lowers blood pressure.

It thins your blood by preventing platelet aggregation, which reduces the risk of blood clots and helps prevent heart attacks.

It also lowers cholesterol levels and helps with digestion.

Garlic is useful for many diseases and illnesses, including cancer.

It’s a potent immune system stimulant and a natural antibiotic.

It should be eaten daily.

It can be eaten fresh, taken in supplement form, or used to prepare garlic oil.

Garlic contains an amino acid derivative, alliin.

When you eat garlic, the enzymes alliinase, which changes alliin to allicin, is released.

Allicin has an antibiotic effect and is estimated to be equivalent to 1% of penicillin.

Because of its antibiotic properties, garlic was used to treat wounds and infections and to prevent gangrene during World War I.

Garlic is also effective against fungal infections, including athlete’s foot, candidiasis, and yeast vaginitis.

There’s some evidence it may also destroy certain viruses, like those associated with fever blisters, genital herpes, a form of the common cold, smallpox, and a type of influenza.

Garlic oil is good for your heart and colon, and is effective in treating arthritis, candidiasis, and circulation problems.

To make garlic oil, add peeled whole garlic cloves to a quart of olive or canola oil.

Experiment to find the number of cloves giving you degree of flavor you like.

Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly and rinse the garlic after peeling and before placing it in the oil.

The peel may contain mold and bacteria that can contaminate the oil.

Keep garlic oil refrigerated.

This mixture will keep for up to a month before you need to replace it with fresh oil.

Garlic oil can be used for sauteing, in salad dressings, and in a variety of other ways.

If you find the odor too strong after you eat garlic, chew some sprigs of parsley or mint, or caraway or fennel seeds.
