Garlic’s resume would read something like this: cholesterol lowerer, blood pressure reducer, blood sugar balancer, cancer combatant, fungus fighter, bronchitis soother, cold curer, wart remover, and immune system toner.
It also could mention garlic’s potential career as an organic pesticide. With a resume like this, it’s no wonder garlic is such a popular herbal remedy. This member of the lily family is one of the most extensively researched and widely used plants. Its actions are diverse and affect nearly every body tissue and system.
Oh, and it’s pretty!
