Garlic is known for possessing a wide-range of healing properties and is used in various cultures to treat various ailments. Garlic is known to be a powerful disease fighter that can inhibit (not only vampires and witches) but bacteria like E. coli. It contains Allicin that works as a potent anti-inflammatory and has been shown to lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
Crushed fresh garlic releases the most allicin. Just don’t overcook; garlic exposed to high heat for more than 10 minutes loses important nutrients.
