7 Reasons Why Garlic is Good for You

By Melanie

While garlic may make your breath stink and make it harsh to kiss, there are still some benefits of it. Years ago, I didn’t know there were so many benefits to garlic, until a friend of mine pointed it out to me. I know, I’m still not as big of a garlic eater as I should be. I would like to pass the information to everyone and give you a blog on 7 reasons why garlic is good for you …

7 Natural Immune Booster

Garlic is a natural immune booster. It helps fight disease and sickness. So, if you do not like being sick (no one does that I know of), you should consume some garlic regularly.

6 Thins the Blood

Garlic also thins the blood. This helps to lower the blood pressure. It also helps to stop any clots from forming.

5 Memory

Another reason I tell you that you should consume garlic regularly is because it helps improve the memory. It also helps to improve the brain function. I don’t know about you, but I would like to have a good memory for as long as I can.

4 Laxative

Whenever you are in need of a laxative, don’t go to the store and buy medicine from over the counter. Try eating some garlic first. Eating garlic may help that problem you are having.

3 Insects Be Gone

It’s almost mosquito time. Oh yeah and don’t forget about those annoying yellow flies. You could always spray some of those harmful chemicals on you that claims to stop insects from biting you, but it doesn’t work so well for me. I have a safer alternative. Did you know that insects do not like the taste of garlic? So, during those summer months, try eating more garlic and this will help keep those insect bites down.

2 More Benefits

Garlic also helps break down and prevent gallstones, kidney stones and even bladder stones. This is definitely a good reason to consume garlic on a regular basis.

1 Cancer Fighter

Just hearing that it is a good cancer fighter made me want to start eating it regularly. Garlic is known for being a great cancer fighter. It has been proven that it reduces the cancer cells and tumours. It has also been proven that it can help cancer as it slows it down from spreading. It could even halt it from spreading.

Those are 7 reasons why garlic is good for you. Like I said, I know this stuff is not exactly the best stuff in the world, but it is good for you. I have noticed a lot of times that when something is good for you, it has one of the worst tasted. However, if prepared the right way, garlic can actually be good. There are actually more than 7 benefits of garlic. I would like you to continue researching it and see how many other benefits you can find right now. So, do you like eating garlic?
