Good old Garlic

Garlic has been used for centuries for its ability to fight of disease and increase stamina.
Today it is widely known for its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It is also excellent for treating parasites in the stomach and intestines. It also helps to reduce mucus build up and congestion in the respiratory system.

Garlic is most effective raw or if cooked added right at the end of the cooking process to reduce heat damage.....now Garlic breath is enough to ward off even the most fearsome vampires, however chopping raw Garlic to a pill type size and swallowing with a glass of water leaves your breath smelling fresh as a daisy!!!

Now is the time to be planting Garlic too. Its as easy as buying some bulbs from the supermarket, letting them sprout, separating the cloves out and planting them in your garden. They are a wonderful companion plant. When planted on the boundary of the garden it repels bugs from coming through to eat all your more tasty plants growing in the middle of the garden.

So with all the colds and flu going around at the moment get chomping on this immunity wonder food, you'll be amazed at how well it works!!!
