So we know that garlic can have benefits in the taste of the food we prepare, but did you know that it can help fight the cold, or possibly aid in lowering cholesterol? Garlic has been used as a natural remedy for thousands of years, but studies are now able to show the plant’s link to numerous health benefits. It can help fight infections, clear up lung infections, and even prevent blood clots. There has also been evidence supporting the claim that garlic supplementation can help with diabetes. Garlic boosts the immune system as it acts like an antibiotic but does not have the negative effect of medicines. You can take garlic in normal clove form or in pill or capsule form as well. Typical doses in supplement form range from 600-1200mg.
