Natural Boosts: How Garlic Supercharges Your Health

List: Posted: 03/04/11

Improving your health and wellness is important.  Finding the right natural supplements can help you decrease your reliance on synthetic pharmaceuticals and reduce the number of side effects that you experience, as well.  One of the most touted natural supplements available is garlic.  What benefits might you find when taking garlic for your health?

 

One of the things that garlic is most often used for is combating the common cold.  Studies have shown that garlic gives your immune system a needed boost – but you need to eat at least one raw clove of garlic at the onset of the sniffles to get this benefit.

 

Other benefits found with garlic include the fact that it has shown to be a good cancer fighter.  Studies have found that this herb can actually reduce the formation of cancerous cells in the body and can even block cancer from starting in the first place.

 

You will also find that garlic plays an important role in preventing heart disease.  Garlic reduces LDL cholesterol, and reduces overall cholesterol in the body, preventing plaque from forming on the walls of your arteries.

 

You will also find that garlic can play a role in battling infection within the body.  Garlic has antibacterial properties, so you can count on this supplement to help you fight infection in wounds, as well as in bodily systems (such as your lymphatic system).

 

There are many other ways that this herb can benefit you, as well.  It has shown to be good for alleviating impotence, as well as for use in pregnancy. Just what the doctor ordered!
