Benefits of Garlic

Did you know that garlic contains more than 100 biologically useful chemicals, with tremendous health benefits? Here are just a few of them. 

Here's why you should be munching on garlic!

Pregnant? New research suggests that garlic is very beneficial if taken during pregnancy.


This is a condition when your blood pressure increases, and there is excessive protein retained in the urine. If you take garlic during pregnancy, it cuts the risk of you developing pre-eclampsia.

Boosts the baby's weight  

Taking garlic boosts the weight of babies in the womb. Thus, when they are born, they are heavier than they would have been if you hadn't taken garlic. Some babies are born too small, so garlic is a definite boon in these cases. 

Other Benefits of Garlic

Reduces cholesterol

Garlic plays an important role in reducing the 'bad' cholesterol in the body. There have been numerous studies of the effects of garlic on reducing cholesterol, and they have well substantiated this fact. So if you have high cholesterol, increase your garlic intake. It also helps reduce blood pressure

Reduced risk of stroke

Reduced cholesterol and blood pressure translates into a reduced risk of heart attacks and heart diseases. 

An aphrodisiac?

Did you know that garlic plays the role of an aphrodisiac? Garlic improves blood circulation, and also helps prolong an erection! Great help for temporary impotence. Of course, the smell can bring your raised libido crashing down! 

An anti-carcinogen

Yes, garlic also helps reduce the risk of cancer, due to its anti-carcinogenic properties. It helps prevent cancerous compounds from forming and developing into tumors. It also inhibits the growth of tumors. In fact, tumors that have already formed can be reduced by 50 to 70 percent by increasing garlic intake! 

Blood clots

Garlic helps prevent blood clots from forming, and it's extremely beneficial especially if you are prone to blood clots in the legs. Garlic also helps regulate blood sugar. It is a natural antibiotic, and it has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. 

How To Take Garlic

Mash 2-3 small cloves of garlic and eat it raw or boiled, before going to sleep. You could have it with a glass of milk or with water. Avoid taking garlic in the daytime as the smell may linger.
