While garlic is a common ingredient in every kitchen, in the ancient times, Our ancestors have used it as a bug-repellant, Medieval Europe against plague and the Egyptians would even bury it along with their dead!
Garlic is a plant in the onion family, grown for its cooking properties and health effects. It is high in a sulfur compound called Allicin, which is believed to bring most of the health benefits.

The potential health benefits of garlic reside in its natural components, which include allicin, a compound that is produced when you chew and crush fresh garlic.
Here are what garlic can do for your health:

Hey....! You want a longer hair?
Garlic could end your hair loss problems because of its high levels of allicin, a sulfur compound similar to that found in onions, which were found to effectively treat hair loss. Rub sliced cloves of garlic on your scalp, squeezing as you go for the most benefit. You can also infuse oil with garlic and massage it into your scalp.

Your heart will thank you.
With age, your arteries tend to lose their ability to stretch and garlic can help maintain their elasticity.It also helps protect the heart from the damaging effects of free oxygen radicals.The sulphur-containing compounds of garlic also prevent our blood vessels from becoming blocked and slow the development of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).The anti-clotting properties of ajoene (a compound present in garlic) helps prevent the formation of clots inside your blood vessels

You need not fear high blood pressure
Consuming garlic on a daily basis (in food or raw) helps to lower cholesterol levels because of the anti-oxidant properties of Allicin. It is also immensely beneficial to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Common, bid acne farewell.
It might not be a main ingredient in your drugstore acne medication, but garlic makes a great natural remedy to banish unsightly blemishes. Its antioxidants kill bacteria, so rub a sliced clove of garlic on the pimple for an effective topical treatment.

A nice ingredient to fight cancer
Garlic also lower risk of developing several types of cancer, according to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, which indicates that people who consume abundant fresh garlic have a lower incidence of stomach, colorectal, prostate and uterine cancers. This may be due to the ability of compounds in garlic to stop cancer cells from dividing and cause them to die.

Closing words, “Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food.” say Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine.


Garlic is good, but needs a lot of courage to be taking it and stand in the crowd cos of the smell.

You can say that again!!! and the best I believe is mixing it up with your daily diet more passively. Just like one of my aunt's grinds it with here pepper along with ginger and also adds it to her tea (the granular derivative)
