The Amazing Garlic - Perfect for Getting Rid of Colds and Flu

Why garlic is good for you

Garlic is a plant food that has been valued for its therapeutic effects for thousands of years. Garlic has been used for its antibacterial and wound healing properties.

A fresh garlic clove (that has not been crushed or cut) contains an odourless sulphur compound called alliin. When garlic is cut or crushed, another sulphur compound, allicin is released. Allicin is then broken down very quickly into other sulphur compounds that are responsible for all the health benefits of garlic.
