(NaturalNews) Garlic has proven to be one of the widely used herbal medicines with high antioxidant properties. Dating as way back as the ancient times, there is no doubt that garlic has cardio-protective effects, anti-inflammatory properties and it can lower blood pressure. It can also fight off cancer cells, infections and detoxifies the body against different kinds of toxins caused by free radicals.

Benefits of garlic

Garlic is a formidable force in fighting off cancer. Due to its ability to produce hydrogen sulfide, garlic is very effective in preventing a variety of cancerous ailments that affects the colon, breast, prostate, stomach, pancreas, esophagus and a whole lot more. It is also a potent herbal medicine that can help in detoxifying the body, cleansing it of harmful toxins that is perfect for people's liver health.

It can boost the immune system and can have a lot of anti-infection uses. It has anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties that can help in the body's healing process. It can prevent worms, fungi and yeasts from causing chaos in the skin. It has also been proven to be effective against burns.

Garlic is also effective against inflammatory problems and may benefit both the respiratory and musculoskeletal systems. Possessing anti-arthritic properties due to its thiacremonone and diallyl sulfide (DAS), the garlic is no doubt the best herbal medicine that can improve inflammatory conditions. The best part is that this can reduce obesity problems as it regulates the production of fat cells.

A powerful extract

Garlic extract releases cell messenger hydrogen sulfide (H2S) which increases blood flow and relaxes blood vessels. Once ingested, the red blood cells and membranes in our bodies start to produce hydrogen sulfide, even with the smallest portion of garlic. It can give the body a natural supply of hydrogen sulfide that helps in reducing the risk and possibility of cardiac disease.

Other health benefits of garlic

Aside from its very enticing aroma when used in cooking our favorite dishes, garlic is also used against nasal congestion, cough, earache, infections, sore throat, to repel mosquitoes, thin the blood for better blood circulation and to avoid clots, warts, and even toothache. When someone is sick, chopped bits of garlic can be added to chicken soup to help the patient feel better. Garlic is a very potent herbal medicine and is readily available in the market. It has become part of many cooking and herbal rituals that have been used for hundreds of years now. It can be grown easily either in your own garden, pot or you can buy these at the nearest market. Not feeling good? Try garlic and see how it makes a whole lot of difference in your overall health. Promote natural and better living today.
