The benefits of garlic, either minced or chopped, raw or roasted, have been well known for quite some time now. Although vampires may have an aversion to this delicious and nutritious vegetable – yes, garlic is considered a vegetable, not an herb – nutritionists are constantly encouraging the rest of us to consume the equivalent of two cloves a day, or about a teaspoon of minced garlic. Just a few of the many health benefits of garlic include:
- Boosting the immune system – A recent 12-week study showed that consuming garlic on a daily basis reduced the number of colds by 63 % when compared to a placebo, and reduced the length of cold symptoms by up to 70 %.
- Preventing heart disease – Garlic has been shown to reduce the level of LDL (the so-called “bad”) cholesterol in the blood, thus potentially lowering the risk of plaque building up on artery walls.
- Reducing the risk of lung cancer – Another study carried out in China showed that people who ate garlic at least twice a week had a 44 % lower risk of developing lung cancer.
- Improving bone health in women – Animal trials suggest garlic increases estrogen levels in females. Since estrogen protects against bone loss, consuming garlic may help reduce the effects of osteoporosis.
