Garlic, for your Good Health...
What do you think when you think of garlic?
..Maybe you love garlic..
But if you don't, below we give you a few reasons why you should!
Included in garlic's therapeutic qualities is the ability to help keep our blood pressure low.
This is caused when our red blood cells produce and release the sulfur compound found in garlic, hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S). This sulfate aids in dilating our red blood cells, ultimately controlling our blood pressure. Garlic carries many other forms of sulfate as well.
Something to keep in mind is the sulfur garlic provides. Studies show the average person to have low sulfur in their daily diet. Garlic is the perfect way to help steer away from sulfur deficiencies.
Garlic has been shown to reduce Cholesterol and prevent blood clotting.
Ajoene is a disulfide in garlic that has anti-clotting properties. Ajoene helps prevent the platelets in our blood from becoming very sticky. If our platelets become too sticky we have higher risks of them clumping together and forming blood clots.
Keep inflammation at bay.
Aged garlic extract has been used to reduce inflamed airways during an instance such as a minor allergic reaction. Diallyl sulfide (DAS) and Thiacremonone in garlic carry these anti-inflammatory properties.
