Garlic is one of my weekly must have’s on my market list and for many reasons and flavour is just one of them. With the cooler months approaching garlic is one of the best foods to add to your meals, especially those roasted and slow cooked ones. YUM!  And it’s loaded with amazing nutrients, so let’s check out some garlic nutrition facts

Why can’t I live without garlic?

Garlic is an extremely excellent source of manganese and vitamin B6, vitamin C and copper. Not to mention packed also with selenium, phosphorus, vitamin B1 and Calcium. Yep you heard it – Garlic is jam packed with the goods!

Ancestrally garlic has been mainly been used for it’s numerous health and medicinal properties. This along with it’s nutrient packed elements make it a go-to food when the first signs of a cold or flue start to niggle the body. Tip: during Autumn and Winter make sure you have this in the kitchen at all times! (Ginger too)

Garlic Benefits:

– Boosting immunity
– Regulates digestion
– Combat’s allergies
– Assisting in improving heart health
– Removing heavy metals from the body
– Killing off UT (urine tract) and kidney infections

+ Plus it’s fantastic when used as a natural antibiotic – that doesn’t kill all the good guys.

 

Check your kitchen and your farmacy cabinet, if there’s no garlic I suggest you stock up!

TOP GARLIC TIP: Make a Ginger and Garlic Paste, the BEST go to in my kitchen for everything plus it’s fantastic at butting little sniffles on the head. Oh and the flavour is great too.
