Food: Garlic Benefits

GARLIC:

This herb was first used in Ancient times by the Egyptians to treat wounds, infections, tumours and intestinal parasites. No wonder they called it the great protector.
This wonder drug aids digestion, relieves earache, acts as an expectorant and as an antiseptic. Garlic also increases the flow of urine thereby killing thread worms and roundworms in your body. Besides, its ability to expel mucous by liquefying it, can help you control your cold, cough and other respiratory tract infections. This amazing herb has also demonstrated the ability to protect against a variety of environmental toxins. Garlic’s sulphur compounds are potent antioxidants which protect cell membranes and DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) from damage.

Garlic cloves have amazingly high levels of vitamins and minerals. Just 100 g provides (in % of Recommended daily allowance)
95% of vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine),
52% of vitamin C,
33% of copper,
21% of iron,
18% of calcium,

About rosesrocksandredfoxes

This is my blog as an Eclectic Pagan. I found the path in 2009. I love to learn, read, explore, and create. I'm a college student right now and I'm always looking for more ways to 'be green' and connect more with the God/Goddess. I'm using this almost as my publicly viewed book of shadows. Enjoy!
