Garlic ~ an ancient superfood

Garlic has been used for both food and medicinal purposes for thousands of years. It is one of the world's oldest medicinal plants. It was first mentioned in China in A.D.510.

Garlic is known to have many health benefits such as lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. It has blood thinning qualities that prevent platelets from banding together so it is used to prevent headaches. Recent studies have concluded that garlic is much like a potent antibiotic, so many people take garlic to help their bodies stay healthy ~ preventing colds and flu.  Studies show that garlic has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties.

In general, eating raw garlic is best, and organically grown garlic tends to have a higher sulfur level, which means a greater health benefit.  You can increase the health benefits by letting it sit after crushing or chopping it ~ let it sit before changing its temperature via cooking.

Garlic is a great source of selenium and manganese, and may help us improve our iron metabolism. It is also a very good source of Vitamin C and B6.

To preserve the health protective compounds in garlic, store it away from exposure to heat and sunlight. When cooking, expose garlic to heat for the shortest time possible (maximum of 250 degrees and no more than 15 minutes) particularly if baking it with oil.
