First let me quickly tell you recipe to prepare this infusion.
For this you will need:
- 3-4 heads of garlic
- 1 cup of raw honey
- a small jar with a lid
- Separate the heads of garlic into individual cloves.
- Don’t peel the cloves, but remove the outer layer.
- Fill the jar with the unpeeled garlic cloves.
- Slowly pour the honey over the cloves.
- Use a spoon to release any trapped air bubbles.
- Make sure the cloves are completely covered by honey, and put the lid on the jar.
- Allow the mixture to infuse for a few days, either in the fridge or at room temperature.
Garlic is low in calories, but high in nutrients, containing Manganese, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, selenium and fiber. It’s a natural immune system booster that helps the body fight infection.
One study found that a daily dose of garlic reduced the number of colds by 63%, while reducing the average length of cold symptoms by 70%.
Raw honey is packed full of antioxidants, along with enzymes and minerals including iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium. In case that isn’t enough, it also contains Vitamin B6, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin. (Commercial honey is often heavily processed, and excessive heat destroys its natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals.) But raw honey is rich in taste and has a high number of nutritional benefits. It has a healthy glycemic index that aids in better digestion.
