One of my favorite ingredients in cooking, garlic is also great for treating colds and sore throats, or even the flu. Use of garlic is said to boost the immune system through the production of white blood cells. It has antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antiseptic properties, so it is good for infections. Studies also show garlic may help lower blood sugar levels.
The next time you start to feel under the weather, add some sliced or chopped garlic to your favorite tea or infusion. Add some garlic to your favorite dish. If nothing else, garlic tablets are available in the vitamin aisle. Better yet, consume some garlic as a preventative measure and try to ward off the illnesses going around before you start feeling bad!
