I am sure you are wondering how garlic and honey can work together, but trust me these two ingredients combined can provide an immense boost to your immunity while also keeping you active.
1. Garlic – an essential ingredient
Garlic is a common ingredient in various foods all over the world, mainly due to the taste it adds to the dishes and due to its medicinal effects, which are pronounced when it is taken raw.
2. Garlic benefits
You would be surprised to know that garlic has many health benefits. It helps reduce cholesterol levels as it has allicin. Allicin also prevents blood clotting and has been to known to prevent cancer as well. It has anti-microbial effects too.
Garlic is excellent for people who want to lose weight since its calorie content is low, but nutrient content is high. It is rich in Manganese, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Selenium, and fiber. It provides a boost to your immune system keeping your body free from infections and other diseases.
3. Raw honey benefits
Raw honey has tons of benefits as well, as it is rich in enzymes, antioxidants and various minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium.
There is no doubt that honey’s taste is excellent. It also improves digestion due to its glycemic index. Just like garlic, honey also helps in maintaining a proper weight while keeping your mind and body healthy and energetic all the time.
4. How you should use garlic
As said earlier, garlic’s primary ingredient is allicin which is destroyed when heated, so it’s best if you consume garlic raw. Just crush it and then slice the clove. Crushing increases the allicin content due to a chemical reaction, so don’t consume it immediately, leave it aside for 15 minutes before eating.
Your body can’t absorb all the nutrients when the stomach is full, so have raw garlic on an empty stomach to get maximum benefits.
5. Honey and garlic
Take two garlic cloves, chop them and then add a tablespoon of honey.
Consume this on an empty stomach every day, and you will soon be able to feel the difference in your energy levels.
