I used to eat a high garlic content meal in my days of playing competitive basketball.
At the time I was six feet and three inches, 225 pounds and the combination of garlic infused sweat and gorilla-esque body hair made me the guy that opponents used to draw traws to see who would cover me. Now that I’ve slimmed down to 205 and practice manscaping regularly, I enjoy garlic in food and supplement form for the plethora of health benefits it offers. For one of the most offensive smelling onions, Garlic plays pretty good defense for us against opponents like disease and aging.
Garlic, Allium Sativum, has been used for centuries for its antioxidant qualities, a cellular detox if you will. It does this in a variety of ways, most importantly as a chelator of iron and other heavy metals that promote aging and makes us more susceptible to disease. Clinical studies have shown that supplementing with as little as 5-10 mg/day is effective at enhancing your immune system.
Besides, anti-aging and immune system function, clinical studies have shown that eating and/or supplementing with garlic has positive benefits towards healthy platelet function and cancerous tumor markers.
Easy ways to implement increased garlic consumption can be done easily with supplements or by adding it to your existing diet. Due to its strong odor, it’s recommending eating parsley to help neutralize the sulfurous component that causes the smell.
