Garlic!

Nutrition Tip Tuesday

Here’s a little tid-bit on the small but mighty garlic!

Back-in-the-day garlic was called “the poor person’s antibiotic” because it was readily available, cheap, and could treat all the things.

Here are all the things:

Garlic as an antimicrobial

  • garlic fights the nasty’s in the gut such as bacteria (the bad ones), candida, yeast, and worms (gross)

Garlic as an antibiotic

  • for centuries is has been used to treat common cold and flu symptoms
  • eliminates mucus

Garlic as an energy booster

  • garlic increases the availability of insulin for better blood sugar regulation

Garlic as a detoxifier

  • digestive cleanser, it fights toxic bacteria in the digestive tract – hiy-ya!
  • cleanses the blood
  • increases the body’s ability to flush toxins from the lymph

Improves circulation

  • lowers blood pressure

Garlic reduces your risk of cancer

  • garlic fights bacteria, lowers blood pressure, increases the immune response, and aids in detoxification…. yeah, I’d say all of that helps!

Next time you have garlic breath, wear it like a badge of honor and breathe these garlicy tid-bits on anyone that will listen.  Your aggressive breath might just save a life!
