Garlic – Nature’s Little Miracle
Garlic is certainly one of nature’s miracle plants. It has been known since the beginning of recorded history for its ability to heal and strengthen the body.
Garlic Is A Powerful Antibiotic.
Garlic destroys both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria including streptococcus, staphylococcus, cholera, bacterial dysentery, typhoid, diphtheria, tuberculosis, tetanus and many others.
A significant finding from Washington State University shows that garlic is 100 times more effective than antibiotics.
Laboratory made antibiotics are non-selective and, besides harmful, they kill also “friendly bacteria” needed for proper metabolic function. This is causing us digestive problems, yeast and fungal overgrowth. Our bodies become immune to these antibiotics over time and dangerous resistant strains of bacteria are occasionally developed.
Garlic, on the other hand, is “selective” and magically kills only bacteria that is harmful and at the same time enhances our friendly bacteria and improves our intestinal flora and digestion!
In addition to that, when the properties of garlic are present in the bloodstream, many aspects of our immune system are enhanced.
Garlic Is A Powerful Antiviral Agent.
Garlic destroys various viruses that cause respiratory infections and influenza. Garlic destroys on contact the viral infections of measles, mumps, herpes simplex #1 and #2, herpes zoster, viral hepatitis, scarlet fever, mononucleosis, chicken pox and others.
Garlics Is A Strong Antifungal Agent.
In the laboratory, garlic has proven to be more potent than any known antifungal agent including Nystatin. Garlic will also regulate the overgrowth of candida albicans.
Garlic Helps With Heart Disease.
Garlic prevents and helps with conditions like high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Garlic has been found to reduce the buildup and inhibit the formation of atherosclerotic plaque in our arteries.
Garlic extract supplements are proven to reduce high cholesterol levels and blood pressure in people with hypertension.
Garlic Is Used As Cancer Treatment.
The National Cancer Institute has reported that cancer incidence worldwide is lowest in the countries where garlic consumption is highest.
Garlic has been proven to increase protection and help against: breast, colon, lung, ovarian, prostate, esophageal and stomach cancer.
Organo-sulfur compounds from garlic have been found to be effective against glioblastoma, a type of highly aggressive brain tumor.
Allicin from garlic may be useful as a cancer treatment. According to one study, when garlic compounds were injected into a tumor cell, the reaction not only penetrated the cell but also killed it.
Garlic Is A Powerful Antioxidant.
The component of garlic, allicin, which causes the smell and familiar flavor, is an extremely effective antioxidant. As allicin digests in our body it produces a compound that goes after dangerous free radicals. This is another way how garlic protects us from cancer and suppresses chemically induced cancers.
How To Consume Garlic
The best way to eat garlic is to take a whole, fresh clove, chop it, smash it or press it, then wait around 15 minutes for the conversion (from alliin into the beneficial allicin) to occur, and then consume it. The active compound loses potency rapidly and can disappear completely within about an hour of chopping.
