We say it all the time – onions are the most used vegetables in the world. But garlic comes in as a very close second. These two are regularly used together by many households, as they are both very popular ingredients as dish starters.
Their strong smell and delicious taste are what makes them so popular, but better tasting recipes is not the only benefit that garlic can bring to your life.
Throughout ancient history garlic was mainly used for its health and medicinal properties. Scientists now know that these benefits are caused by sulphur compounds, which are formed when a garlic clove is chopped, crushed, or chewed.
Garlic is also great at keeping your gut healthy. Researchers have found that garlic is high is prebiotic fibres, which has a big impact on bacteria found in the body. This bacteria is essential for a healthy gut system to operate effectively.
Garlic also contains various other nutrients and is very low in calories. Truly, it contains a little bit of almost everything you need for a healthy lifestyle.
