(NewsTarget) When you're sick with the flu, an infection, or simply unwell, doctors will usually prescribe antibiotics. We all know however, how dangerous antibiotics can be. But what if you could find that very cure for these things in nature, where you wouldn't have to suffer the dismal side effects of nausea, wrenching stomach pains, potential hallucinations, and a gruesome attack on the friendly flora that lives in your intestines? What if you didn't have to feel like a run-down old tractor, or like you've suddenly run out of batteries?

Yes, it stinks a bit - no wonder vampires hate it! But the abundance of health benefits contained in a single clove of garlic should be enough to make you embrace it - for there is a whole list of those benefits. In Russia, garlic is even called the 'Russian Penicillin', where it's healing properties make it the most potent antibiotic nature can offer.

Phytochemicals: while garlic does not have a huge stash of vitamins and minerals, it does contain a particular phytochemical called 'allicin' (produced when garlic is chopped, minced, or chewed), which protects your body from a variety of ailments including bacterial infection and also excessive cholesterol.

Antimicrobial and antifungal agents: In two recent studies, it has been discovered that allicin found in garlic is effective against two very difficult strains of bacteria... Enterococci and Staphylococcus.

Baby weight: A team of London researchers found that garlic can help to boost baby weight during pregnancy, and to decrease risks of preeclampsia complications at birth.

Reduced caner risks: In the Iowa Women's Health Study, women who added garlic to their diets had a 32% less chance of developing colon cancer. Another study at the National Cancer Institute in the US suggested that garlic can both slow the growth of cancer cells as well as cause abnormal cells to self destruct, making it an optional anti-cancer agent.

Heart health and cholesterol: Garlic acts as a mop when it comes to elevated LDL cholesterol, and it reduces platelet adhesion (blood stickiness). In a sixteen-week study that involved giving garlic to 261 patients, cholesterol levels were reduced by 12% and triglyceride levels were reduced by 17%.

For thousands of years, garlic has been used in many unusual ways and for a multitude of ailments - colds, ear infections, sore throats, warts, yeast infections, sinusitis, asthma, congestion, and even impotence. After thousands of years however, in our labs today the world of science is discovering that these old ways were in fact not so far off, and that there is yet still much to be discovered about the healing properties of nature's own antibiotic.
