Garlic has long been known to humans not only as a spice that makes dishes more appealing and tasty but also as a miraculous natural medicine.
The components of garlic contain many antibiotic allicin compounds that help fight against disease-causing viruses. Garlic oil is rich in glucogen and allicin, phytoncide with antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory effects. In addition, garlic also contains a large amount of vitamins A, B, C, D, PP, carbohydrates, polysaccharides, inulin, phytosterol, and other minerals necessary for the body such as iodine, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and trace elements.

This spice also helps reduce cholesterol levels in the blood, rich in antioxidants to restore the activity of cells in the body, enhance immunity, and help the body fight against many diseases, including dangerous cancers.

Garlic is not only used as a spice when processing dishes, but it is also used as medicine to treat various diseases such as abdominal pain, colds, bloating, indigestion, liver, heart, arthritis, blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes...

In medicine, garlic is used for various purposes such as raw consumption, processing with food, soaking in alcohol, soaking in vinegar... Eating 10g of garlic each day will help enhance the body's detoxification ability.

However, nutrition experts recommend that before processing garlic, it should be thinly sliced ​​and left in the air for 15 minutes so that the antibiotics in garlic can combine with the oxygen in the air to produce effective cancer-fighting substances.

Below are some ways to prepare remedies for diseases from garlic:

    Colds and flu
    Use raw garlic or soak garlic in vinegar for 30 - 40 days for daily consumption.
    Squeeze garlic water, dilute with clean water in a ratio of 1:10. Add a little salt. Use this water to drop into the nose 2 - 3 times/day.

    Bloating and indigestion
    Use garlic juice, discard the residue, dilute with warm water to drink daily.
    Take 50g of minced garlic, soak in 200ml of white wine for 15 days. Use wine and garlic residue to drink. 1 teaspoon each time, 2-3 times/day.

    Cough and sore throat
    Peel garlic, leave about 10g of cloves. Soak the garlic in vinegar for 30 days. Use soaked garlic cloves, thinly slice and gargle for 10 - 15 minutes. Persistent use can cure chronic cough.

Note: Do not use raw garlic for gargling as it may cause throat burns. The inflamed area in the throat will become more severe.

    Joint pain and bone pain
    Peel garlic, split the cloves without removing the skin, soak in alcohol at a ratio of 100g of garlic to 200ml of water. Soak thoroughly for 45 - 60 days or longer. Filter the water. Use this water to apply to the painful areas and gently massage. Should be used regularly, especially in the evening before going to bed.

    Consume at least 5g of garlic soaked in vinegar every day. Consuming for a month will significantly reduce blood sugar levels.

    High blood pressure and blood clots
    Eating 10g of garlic soaked in vinegar or wine every day will effectively stabilize blood pressure. Note to only consume soaked garlic and avoid using it in combination with garlic-soaked wine.
    Alternatively, use 100g of peeled garlic mixed with 100g of white beans, simmer with 2 liters of clean water for 2 hours. Use this water to drink daily. The simmered beans can also be eaten. Use this remedy at least once every 2 weeks.

    Garlic against cancer
    Garlic contains allium compounds that become “enemies” of various cancers such as breast cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, intestinal cancer, prostate cancer, and bladder cancer.
    For breast cancer, garlic significantly prevents carcinogens from attacking breast cells. Valuable components in garlic that have anti-cancer effects include diallye disulphide and s-allystein. These compounds are only “revealed” when garlic is crushed or mashed. In addition, garlic also contains a renowned anti-tumor compound called ajoenes.
    In addition, garlic contains alliin, oxygen-resistant substances, and some components such as selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E... that can prevent the growth of tumor masses.
    Researchers have conducted studies showing that garlic can destroy bacteria “residing” in the abdominal cavity and reduce the risk of stomach cancer.
    Use 50g of garlic and 100 fresh blueberries, squeeze out the juice. Use this water to drink before each meal. 1 teaspoon each time.
    Boil 100g of green tea leaves with 500ml of clean water. When boiling, add 5g of crushed garlic, boil for 5 seconds. Drink the water while it's still hot and use it as a daily drink.
illnesses using garlic
    Antibacterial properties
    Due to its antibacterial properties, garlic is often used in preventing and treating gastrointestinal and respiratory inflammations. Garlic is also used to cleanse the intestines and prevent worm infestations (roundworms, pinworms, tapeworms).

    Reduce swelling, treat mosquito bites
    To reduce swelling caused by mosquito bites, you can use crushed garlic applied to the affected skin area. The itching, discomfort, and swelling will reduce immediately.
    In addition, you will avoid many more mosquitoes if you use garlic as a daytime mosquito repellent. You can push back mosquitoes at night by placing garlic branches in mosquito-infested areas or applying a little garlic water to exposed skin.

    Acts like an antibiotic
    Garlic is not only a common spice but also acts like an antibiotic, enhancing the body's immunity, helping you reduce the risk of bacterial or viral infections. Moreover, garlic is a “catalyst” that helps wounds heal quickly, reducing the risk of infection.
    Because of this function, garlic is also seen as an effective “weapon” to help women prevent the appearance of acne.
    A basic component in garlic is 100 times stronger than two familiar antibiotics in coping with food poisoning bacteria Campylobacter - scientists have recently discovered.
    Tests have shown that diallyl sulphide compounds in garlic can easily attack the slimy protective layer of Campylobacter bacteria, making it very difficult to destroy.
    Diallylsulphide is not only much stronger than the two antibiotics erythromycin and ciprofloxacin but also acts faster.

    Acts like Viagra
    Sexual health doctors often advise those with problems in the bedroom to supplement garlic in their diet. Because garlic contains compounds that increase sexual desire.

    Treat heart disease
    By the “double-edged sword” method, garlic not only lowers “bad cholesterol” levels but also increases “good cholesterol” levels, effectively removing plaques clinging to the artery walls. Garlic reduces cholesterol levels by 9% if you chew 2 cloves each day.
    Garlic also protects the main arteries. These are the heart's blood vessels that maintain blood pressure and blood flow when the heart beats.
    Age, malnutrition, and smoking will cause hardening of the main arteries. Eating garlic regularly will slow down the aging process of the main arteries and make them more flexible and resilient.

    Treat high blood pressure
    Garlic helps control blood pressure by reducing blood viscosity due to ajioene. This substance also prevents the formation of blood clots.
    Many studies have shown that people in areas where garlic is consumed a lot rarely suffer from blood pressure and heart diseases. Traditional Chinese medicine has long used garlic to treat chest pain or circulatory disorders.

    Treat infections
    It has been discovered since 1858 that garlic has antibacterial properties when Louis Pasteur discovered that bacterial cells would die if soaked in garlic. During World War II, British doctors used garlic as an antibiotic to treat wounds for soldiers.
    Albert Schweitzer (a German-French philosopher and physician) used garlic to treat typhus fever and cholera. Not only does garlic have antibacterial properties, but it also has antifungal and antiviral properties.

    Other uses
    Garlic is also used to treat acne, toothaches, sore throats, atherosclerosis, digestive disorders, bladder infections, liver diseases...

Note: Do not use garlic if you are taking anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medication or hypoglycemic (diabetes) medication.
