Raw Garlic and in Pills
Garlic has many and varied benefits, and is used to treat, fight, and prevent several diseases. Recent studies have shown that garlic can increase insulin production, a hormone that turns glucose into energy and controls type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, consuming large quantities of raw garlic reduces blood sugar levels.
How to use Garlic
In order to benefit from garlic, you need to eat raw garlic regularly. Remember that garlic, after it has been warmed up, loses most of its beneficial properties.
If the taste keeps you from being able to eat it, you can take garlic pills or garlic oil.
You should consume from 500 milligrams to 1000 milligrams of garlic a day, which adds up to 1 or 2 fresh, raw garlic cloves.
Another alternative would be drinking “garlic water”. Pour 200 milliliters of water in a cup and add one minced clove of garlic. Let it sit so that the garlic's properties can be absorbed into the water, and drink it throughout the day.
At the end of the day, throw the garlic away.
Remember that if you eat too much garlic you may suffer from some digestive problems.
These recipes are not recommended for people who are allergic to garlic, pregnant, or breastfeeding women, or children under the age of 4.
