Garlic is an amazing herb because it's a natural antibiotic. It's anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and it's considered an antioxidant. It has also been known to kill off parasites. I've never tried drinking garlic water but I definitely add garlic to a lot of my recipes.

When my blood pressure is beyond normal, I use to take a clove of garlic together with a spoonful of honey. This normalizes my high blood pressure. And when taken on a regular basis, I mean everyday, it helps lower cholesterol level and reduces arterial plaque formation.

I heard it's good for the heart. So i guess it won't only drive away your flu but it will also strengthen your heart then.

I know that garlic has anti-viral and anti-bacterial effect on the body but using garlic water, I have no idea on what are the other benefits of this. I just know that it contains sulfur. Maybe, the effect of sulfur in our skin is the same effect as garlic water. Just take the smell of the garlic. LOL

I am not sure and have never heard about usage of Garlic water. However, I do use Garlic in Tea when the weather is slightly cold, or I have cold or cough. Garlic is also good when used with Vegetables and pulses.
