Garlic is nature’s own remedy. It has many health benefits.
Garlic is composed of nitrogenous substances, sodium, potassium, selenium, calcium, magnesium, silicon, sulfuric, phosphoric acid, vitamin C, D, B, phytosterols, extractives, and essential oils.
Additionally, garlic is rich in phytoncides, such as allicin, which is formed by the mechanical destruction of plants, that is – crushing or grinding cloves of garlic.
According to some researchers, allicin has a strong bacteriostatic effect which helps cure infections faster.
Garlic can also fight fungal infections, which makes garlic a much more valuable medicine than that of many of today’s antibiotics.
