As you surely know, we use garlic in cooking and… well, in chasing vampires away. But seriously, did you know people actually use garlic for a great number of unbelievable purposes?
For example, one of the useful applications of good old garlic is good old medicine. Apart from being tasty (depending on the individual’s preferences), it’s also extremely useful when it comes to fighting off nasty stuff like a common cold. Not only does it prevent a running nose and a sore throat, but it can also add a great boost to your immune system. Garlic also comes in handy as medicine for more serious problems like heart disease, diabetes, cancer and high blood pressure. Not only that, but it’s also known to be a strong bug and insect repellent.
So next time you frown at the stench of a clove of garlic, try to remember that there’s more to it than the bad breath it will give you.
