Consuming raw garlic might lead to bad breath and a burning sensation. But you can boost your natural defence system with it. This common seasoning is low in calories and rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6 and manganese. Most of its health benefits are caused by sulfur compounds produced when a garlic clove is chopped, crushed or chewed. This compound enters the body from the digestive tract and reaches all over the body, where it exerts its biological effects.
Good for gut and weight loss
Good gut health and weight loss are linked to each other. There is nothing better than garlic to improve the number of good bacteria in your gut. A healthy gut speeds up the weight loss process and prevents stomach related issues like diarrhoea and constipation.
Help Boost Your immunity
Eating 4-5 garlic cloves in the morning can help to boost your immunity, which is essential now when we have entered the winter season. It contains compounds that help the immune system fight free radicals and disease-causing foreign pathogens. Crushed garlic has allicin, the main active ingredient in garlic that improves your internal defence system.
For Healthy skin
Dry and itchy skin is common in winters. An effective way to prevent skin-related diseases is to have garlic in the morning on an empty stomach. Have garlic every day in the morning for clear and supple skin
Help Detoxifies Your body
Consuming raw garlic is much better than detox juices, to remove toxins from the body. The sulfhydryl compound in it can remove toxic substances from the body and prevent diseases like typhus, diabetes, depression, and some types of cancer
Fight against hypertension
Raw garlic can also help to fight the symptoms of hypertension. The presence of sulphur-containing compounds like allicin, diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulfide, in this bulbous vegetable can help to keep your blood pressure in check
