How to use garlic?
Garlic’s benefits are optimal when it’s consumed raw because its active ingredient – allicin loses its properties when it’s processed thermally. Crush and slice the cloves and let them stay for 15 minutes before you eat it. When you crush the cloves, it activates a reaction that boosts the allicin’s bio-availability.
It’s also best if you consume on an empty stomach due to the fact that it’s easier for your body to absorb the nutrients when your stomach is not full.
