Garlic

The world has gone fanatic over the Coronavirus (COVID-19) with travel bans, plunging stocks, and quarantines. To optimize your reaction to viral infections it’s critical to support your immune system. There are many botanical herbs that research has shown to increase immune function, one of these being garlic! Hippocrates himself prescribed Garlic for a variety of health conditions, but only recently have we begun to understand its mechanism. Garlic is an amazing source of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, B-6, selenium, calcium, and iron! The active ingredients are sulfur containing compounds, the most well-known being Allicin, which are formed when garlic is chopped, crushed or chewed. These compounds are also what gives garlic its characteristic smell. Studies on Garlic have shown that it can reduce the risk of becoming sick, how long you stay sick, and reduce the severity of symptoms! Garlic has many other amazing health benefits such as reducing blood pressure, improving cholesterol levels, and preventing oxidative stress. Garlic really is an incredible herb! Buying garlic pre-chopped can make it much easier to add it to food you eat everyday, or if you can’t stand the taste of garlic, get a supplement!
