I know garlic is good for the health, but have never tried to eat it raw.We do use garlic while cooking food.But I have not eaten it just like that.My father on the other hand eats a few garlic pearls first thing in the morning.It is because it purifies the blood.How about you friends?Do you like garlic and do share some more benefits of it.

I love the taste of garlic and use it often, especially in spaghetti and other Italian dishes. I know, there health benefits for the heart, but I have eaten plain garlic before.

I don't really like the taste of garlic, but I certainly believe in the herbal value of garlic. Some people use garlic a lot in preparing different types of food.

Yes I like to eat garlic. The best is to make a toast and put garlic and grease on it. I like it very much and I know that garlic is good to improve the immunity of the system. It is also good to overcome a coldness and other illnesses. And I heard that if you have hair fall problems like I do, then it is good to put in on the hair. I have never tried this, because of the smell. The garlic is also very good pressed and mixed with oil and salt. I put this on french fries because it is very tasty that way. You should try it. remember you have to make it cream and then you can use it on french fries.

I can't say that I have ever eaten raw garlic before but I do take garlic supplements. I try to take it because they say it is good for your health so I went to my local natural store and bought some pills that are garlic infused vitamins and that is said to be just as good as the natural raw form of garlic so I think i will stick with them. The real garlic just is too strong for me to eat raw on it's own so i will keep my routine lol

I can not eat raw garlic I feel that my mouth is burning and my stomach gets acidic. But I love adding garlic to my menu. Especially fried rice and Adobo. My mom used to crushed garlic and add it to her drinking water when she had high blood pressure. It lowers her blood pressure but she stop doing it because it affects her stomach. She also told me that garlic can be applied to skin allergies like ringworm and insect bites.

Hi. I would personally never eat a garlic raw. But I really like normal onions raw.. And I think garlic is meant to be in the kitchen as a cooking ingredient. My friends doesn't like garlic as much as I do, so i don't suppose they eat them raw eather..
