Will you be eating more garlic?
A lot of people love garlic. It’s not just a tasty addition to almost every meal, but it’s also great for your wellbeing! Continue reading and find out why eating garlic is so good for you.
1. Healthy teeth
Research has shown garlic may be a good alternative treatment in treating inflamed gums. Additionally, garlic by nature has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties. And that also goes for all the tiny organisms living in your mouth and possibly influencing your health.
2. Fitter feeling
Are you working hard to improve your fitness? Try adding more garlic to your diet. Research has shown that a particular garlic oil lightens the load on your heart during exercise.
Plus, you might appreciate knowing that this was a known fact in ancient times as well. The ancient Greeks prescribed garlic to (original) Olympic athletes and people involved in heavy physical labor. This job would just be a little lighter.
3. Anti-ageing properties
There seems to be decent evidence that garlic can work against ‘oxidative stress’, and with that: the aging process itself. Wait what? In short: we age because our body converts food and oxygen into energy. However, sometimes our body will be a little too enthusiastic about this process and destroy other cells in the process. In turn, our skin becomes looser and our brain slower. These are the consequences of “oxidative stress”. In these cases, garlic can be a useful addition to your diet. Stink weed causes your body to increase the production of substances in the blood that counteract the overexcitement of oxidative cells in your body. These substances are commonly called antioxidants. In this way, garlic helps slow down the physical signs of aging!
