Allicin is the major biologically active component of garlic and the key ingredient responsible for the anti-bacterial activity in garlic.
Clinical studies have showed that garlic/allicin has the ability to lower total cholesterol LDL “bad cholesterol and increase HDL “good cholesterol”. It may support the overall health of the circulatory system, which may help in lowering the risk of heart attack and strokes.
Other benefits of garlic include:
•prevent infections, colds and flues
•combat free radicals
•slow down aging
Quick cooking tip :
To make your food more effective use garlic that has been cut into slices as crushing will destroy much of the active Allicin, then let sit for about 10-15 minutes.
Your body will thank you!
