How To Consume Garlic

Of course you can cook wth it but I like to crush it up and add it to a glass of warm water. You know, like a garlic tea. Yes, I actually do like this. Give it a try…you might just like it too! It has proven to be more beneficial to eat the cloves raw because there are more health benefits than eating it cooked. Allicin is the powerful factor of garlic we need for the magic to happen. Once you crush or cut the garlic, let it sit in the air for a bit before consuming to make sure you get the full benefits.

Start today. Eat a garlic clove a day! Stay healthy, be happy 🙂
