Sunday's Life-Saving Food - GARLIC

Garlic: It's Your Superfood!

Make This A Life-Saving Food 

Garlic promotes the well-being of the heart and immune systems with antioxidant properties and helps maintain healthy blood circulation. One of garlic's most potent health benefits includes the ability to enhance the body's immune cell activity.

•Thin the blood: When consumed, they’ve been shown to thin the blood, which can be helpful in the prevention of heart disease, such as heart attacks and stroke.

•Antioxidants: They also are high in antioxidants, and so might be helpful in the prevention of many different types of cancer.

•Joint health: Your joints will also love you for consuming garlic on a regular basis — a study found that people who consumed higher amounts of garlic (and other allium vegetables, such as leeks, chives, and onions) were less likely to get osteoarthritis than those who didn’t consume as much.

•Increase absorption of iron and zinc: A study found that eating garlic with grains helped the absorption of these necessary minerals. This is especially important for vegetarians who may not get as much iron and zinc in their diet as a meat-eater.
