Benefits of garlic

The botanical name for garlic plant is Allium Sativum and garlic has nicknamed as a ‘wonder drug’ because it enjoys a good reputation for treating illness. It has been traditionally used for medicinal as well as culinary purposes since olden times. And this continues even today, as doctors and medical experts in today’s age support this claim. Read on to find out about the health benefits of garlic:


To seek relief from dental problems like toothache, garlic is a natural remedy. Apply a piece of crushed garlic or better still, dab a tiny piece of cotton in garlic oil and apply it on the affected area to seek quick relief.


Garlic possesses antiviral properties that helps the body to fight against allergies.


To get rid of the cold and flu, eating a small amount of raw garlic is helpful. Eat two to three cloves of garlic a day for a few days.


Raw garlic is good for people who wish to loose weight. Drink a glass of warm water mixed with the juice of half a lime along with two to three chopped cloves of raw garlic. Doing this regularly on an empty stomach in the morning on a regular basis, will aid in fat loss.


Skin problems like acne, pimples, blackheads and blemishes too, can be dealt with garlic. Applying crushed clove on your acne and pimples may cause a burning sensation, however, since garlic contains anti-septic properties it will help in fighting the infection from spreading further.


Making garlic a regular part of your diet is good because garlic acts as a natural blood purifier. Also, problems like blood pressure and bad cholesterol can be controlled by consuming raw garlic regularly.


Garlic is also a good source of anti-carcinogenic properties, which help in the prevention of lifethreatening diseases like cancer by preventing the cancerous cells to develop into tumours and also prevents the further growth of tumours.


If you wish to use some natural product instead of the numerous anti-ageing creams, garlic too, can help you here. That’s because garlic contains anti-oxidant properties that help in preventing the formation of free radicals in the body, thereby reducing wrinkles.


Garlic is also beneficial for pregnant women as it helps prevents the baby from being under weight, which is not a good sign. By regularly consuming garlic, the baby will be born heavier.
