I love garlic and know the healing power it has. Poor people around me because when I cook I use a load of fresh garlic. Just made Spicy Thai Eggplant with a whole bulb! mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I wish I liked garlic. I know it is so good for you but I get severe gas when I eat raw garlic.
Not a pleasant thing to happen. I sometimes get digestive issues but not like I used to years ago before I changed my diet. I guess we all have to listen to our bodies!
I was having dinner with some friends one evening. My friend, made a stir fry with lots of garlic in it, she told me that she could only eat organic garlic as when she ate non-organic garlic she would have extreme digestive problems.
Garlic contains allicin, which is known to improve and increase the blood flow to the sexual organs, so apart from all other beneficial effects, garlic is a natural aphrodisiac as well.
Garlic is an Aphrodisiac!
Tibetan monks were forbidden from entering the monasteries if they had eaten garlic. It stirs up passions.
Considering these characteristics, I can also get passionate about garlic: de-worms, inhibits viruses and fungi, relieves pain and fever,disinfects, suppresses cancerous growths, coughs, detoxifies carcinogens, lowers LDC - Cholesterol, improves DLL-Cholesterol, reduces blood platelet interconnection (an important factor in coronary heart disease), lowers hypertensive blood pressure.
Garlic; you mean Russian penicillin??
I hear that's what they use for almost any affliction.
It is great for many things especially your heart and circulatory system.
But keep it,and onions which are as good; AWAY FROM YOUR DOG!!!

Discover its unique benefits, its history, and enjoy some tasty recipes.
Garlic owes its smell to a sulfur compound. The fact that it stinks isn’t unique–sulfur compounds are renowned for their nasty odors. In fact, sulfur compounds in intestinal gas are responsible for the smell of flatulence. Those sulfur compounds are pretty potent stuff, considering that they make up just one percent of the total intestinal gas released!

The allicin in garlic is also a powerful antibiotic, which fights infection and bacteria. British researchers gave 146 people either a placebo or a garlic extract for 12 weeks. The garlic takers were two-thirds less likely to catch a cold. Other studies suggest that garlic lovers who chow more than six cloves a week have a 30 percent lower rate of colorectal cancer and a 50 percent lower rate of stomach cancer. Garlic helps to open clogged sinuses.
Listen to a garlic lover (me) and a garlic hater argue about these benefits: Garlic Health Benefits.
