Hey, Yes that is very true, we have garlic at least a few times a week. But the only bad thing about eating garlic, is that we always have bad breath, so we need to brush our teeth and have some gum before we go outside. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

Thanks for the information. I knew that garlic was good for you and very healthy, but I didn't know that it could do all that. I thought it helped to boost your immune system. I guess it just helps your body in many different ways. It's a good thing that I like garlic. :-)

The existence of the role of garlic to prevent diarrhea. Every day I do use some garlic dishes. Sometimes, garlic mashed Inagi. The transfer of some vinegar and sesame oil. To eat noodles with a special flavor. Very delicious. We do some cool dishes, we must put some crushed garlic. Is not only delicious, but also to ensure the health.
