The Amazing Benefits Of Garlic

Garlic is widely known as a great health remedy, that has been used for a long time to treat various ailments. As well as a tasty addition to almost any dish, I've listed a few key health benefits garlic also has to offer. 

1. Helps strengthen the immune system, as well as helping to fight chest infection and coughs. Good source of vitamin B6, essential for healthy immune system. I take a regular garlic supplement, especially through winter to fend of colds and flu. 

2. Helps keep your heart healthy and fight off heart disease, as it is said to break down the 'bad' cholesterol that builds on the walls of the body's veins. 

3. Research has shown garlic to aid in the prevention of various types of cancers, including bladder cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer. The vitamin B6 is said to be the key factor in fighting these diseases. 

4. Garlic regulates blood sugar levels, as it increases the levels of insulin in the blood. 

So, next time you're cooking a meal, make sure you add a bit of garlic, for a great tasting and extra healthy meal. Eat cooked or fresh. Check back soon for more posts and latest news on healthy living.
