Garlic has been used as medicine and for cooking for quite some time, if I may say thousands of years. It is a natural probiotic and it has numerous health benefits and it does give so much flavor to food. Some of the illnesses that it claims to help are liver diseases, baldness, clogged arteries, colds, flu, respiratory problems, etc.
The best and most healthy ingredient in garlic is allicin. But if the garlic is cooked the allicin is destroyed, you can only benefit from it if you chrush the garlic or pulverize it. If the odor is disturbing to you, just add some vegetable oil and parsley to it. Leave it for 15 minutes and it’s good to go.
