Healthy Food #8: Garlic

Garlic can help inhibit the growth of bacteria.

Garlic is a powerful disease fighter that can inhibit the growth of bacteria, including E. coli.

Allicin, a compound found in garlic, works as a potent anti-inflammatory and has been shown to help lower cholesterol and blood-pressure levels.

Quick Tip:

Crushed fresh garlic releases the most allicin. Just don’t overcook; garlic exposed to high heat for more than 10 minutes loses important nutrients.
