For the sake of a healthy body, the habit of chewing raw garlic has been done long ago. There are several active substances in garlic that are believed to be able to overcome the problem of influenza, various types of inflammation, heart disease, digestive problems, cough, bronchitis or pneumonia and others.
Research reveals that there are nutrients allicin, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are all useful for health.
Allicin has functions as antiviral, antimicrobial, and antifungal. By routinely chewing raw garlic, evil organisms that trigger many diseases can be minimized.
A study published in the journal Advances in Therapy reveals that a person’s immune system will increase if regularly eat garlic.
As a precautionary measure, you can try to chew 2 garlic per day to avoid some of the health problems. While for those who are already ill and in need of healing therapies other than medical drugs, consume more than 2 garlic per day on a regular basis.
In contrast to cooked garlic, raw garlic is believed to be more effective because it stores enzymes and nutrients that are still alive and active and easily absorbed by digestion.
High temperatures in the cooking process can kill most of the enzymes and beneficial nutrients, so its function is less effective for herbal treatment. Including if you want to do treatment therapy because of disease.
