Like onion (Allium cepa), leek (Allium ampeloprasum var. Porrum) and winter onions (Allium fistulosum), it is a species of economic importance widely cultivated and unknown in the wild.
It is a sterile species with wide morphological and physiological variability and, in the light of molecular studies, it is highly probable that it is native to Western and Middle Asia through its progenitor Allium longiscupis, and that it was introduced from there in the Mediterranean – and Then to other areas – where it has been cultivated for more than 7000 years. Garlic is a vegetable that provides an immense number of health benefits.
The list of diseases that garlic can kill is long, and includes:
- Vibrio infection
- Klebsiella infection
- HIV-1 infection
- Pseudomonas Aerigonosima
- Mycobacterial tuberculosis
- Clostridium infection
- Streptococcus group B Infection
- Cytomegalovirus Infections
- Helicobacter pylori infection
- Candida infection (yeast)
- Mycotoxins associated with aflatoxicosis
- Viral infections
- Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
In this huge list we can add that garlic has been used to treat and cure cancer, which was even recommended by Hippocrates. For that reason, you should consume 5-6 cloves of garlic a day, preferably crushed.
But first you must let it sit for 15 minutes or more after being crushed to release the enzyme called alinase. This enzyme produces anti-cancer compounds and fungi.
It can be eaten raw and cooked as part of sandwiches or other meals, but the same compounds will not be produced in the same way as the crushed garlic does.
According to data given by the National Library of Medicine, garlic is extremely important in the prevention or treatment of over 150 health conditions, ranging from cancer to diabetes, infection to plaque buildup in arteries, and DNA damage from mercury poisoning.
Even though people are becoming increasingly aware of the properties of natural ingredients, doctors always prescribe medications as part of our treatments.
Therefore, you are responsible for your health. You must learn how you can use nature to improve health.
