And now I do know why Dracula hated garlic and the Italians love it. Yes, it is one of the most potent fighters which fights for the betterment of our health and eating garlic on empty stomach can do so many wonders about which you may not have even imagined.
I am sure this is not the first time you are going to read a eulogy that sings the praises of Lord Garlic, but here is one that actually tells you what the benefits are and why these benefits are best reaped when you eat garlic on empty stomach.
1 Let’s begin by knowing why it should be taken on an empty stomach
Okay, eating garlic before you eat anything is like consuming the antidote before so the poison that you take later, doesn’t affect you. To explain the metaphor, it simply means that you prepare your stomach for the toxins and bacteria that you are going to ingest through food, later during the day. Because garlic is a potent antibiotic and an antioxidant too, it shields your stomach from infection and diseases.
The point that we ought to have it before we eat anything else is, that there is nothing else lying in the stomach to interfere in the assimilation of the nutrients that garlic offers.
Here is what garlic can do for you.
2 Health Benefits of Garlic
Keeping a Check on the Blood Pressure
This and only this, is the easiest and the safest way to keep blood pressure under control. It is no less than an elixir for those who complain of high blood pressure. Garlic has the ability to bring down the supine systolic blood pressure by 12mmHG. What does that mean? That means you don’t need to take any blood pressure stabilizing medications.
The best part is that you just have to take it once a day,tada! No side-effects unlike the medication. But if you do count the odor as one, then it is your bad. And in any case, odor is something that breath mint can fight.
3 Fighting Inflammation
Inflammation, no matter of which kind is actually preventable and curable by garlic. Patients of arthritis can benefit from it immensely. Eating garlic on empty stomach will not only help in fighting the symptoms of arthritis but also in combating the pain related to it. Incidentally, along with working as an anti-inflammatory agent, it also works efficiently as an incredible analgesic. So, it is like the icing on the cake. It shuts down the tracks that lead to inflammation in the body while mitigating the pain.
4 Dissuading Infections of all Sorts
Yes, if you eat garlic on empty stomach, I bet that infections are definitely going to get deterred. Yeast infection, fungus, warts, ring worms and all sorts of bacterial infections are kept at bay by this miraculous herb. Not only this; just in case you have already fallen prey to one of these infections, you can simply take one garlic a day, or as suggested and you can easily get relief within a few days.
Now, that not only counts for easy and quick relief but garlic also saves you from the trouble that your body goes through under the effects of antibiotic medications.
5 Boosts You Immune Health
This is perhaps the best thing that this herb can do for you – boost your immune system. Having a frail immune system is something that is most common today. Fatigues, frequent cold and flu, nasal allergies and the like are most often the results of a weak immune health.
Garlic has the ability to give it a power boost. This is what a single clove of garlic has – 12 mg potassium, 5 mg of calcium and 100 sulfuric compounds. Now that is something not even a man made health tonic has.
So, to good health with Garlic!
