Garlic is a world-famous seasoning native to Central Asia that has been consumed for thousands of years. Almost everybody keeps a string of garlic in the kitchen to use in a wide variety of recipes. It gives a pungent and spicy flavor to food and becomes somewhat sweetened when cooked.

However, raw garlic is not for everyone’s taste. Some people love it, some people hate it. We get that. It has a very intensive taste that might make you frown as you chew when you try it for the first time. But it also offers many great health benefits, making it worth to get used to the taste.

If you can’t tolerate the taste of raw garlic no matter how hard you try, there is one trick that might help you: dip it in honey. The sweetness of the honey will take away the intense flavor of the garlic and make it much tastier.

In this article, we will discuss the benefits of eating a small chunk of raw garlic first thing in the morning, every morning. If you decide to adopt this habit, make sure you brush your teeth afterward with a powerful and refreshing toothpaste as garlic gives you a horrible breath. Unless you want to keep your coworkers at a distance.


1. It Boosts The Immune System

Garlic’s medicinal properties can boost your immune system and help you fight against common cold and flu. Garlic contains allicin, a compound that besides giving its distinctive odor and taste, also improves the responsiveness of some types of leukocytes (also known as white blood cells).

These are the cells of the immune system and are responsible for protecting your organism against viruses, fungus, and bacteria. That’s why in the old days, people used to chew on garlic every time they had the common flu.

In recent years a lot of research has been done on the effects of garlic in treating the flu. While some studies claim it can help reduce the symptoms and prevent the illness, a review of the evidence of those studies concluded that there is still a lack of conclusive data as most of them weren’t rigorous enough.
