How to use garlic to treat fungal infections?
The experts say that you should consume at least 5 cloves of garlic per day. This is very important for you to remember – you need to crush it before you eat it. Usually, there are about 10-12 cloves per the whole pod of garlic. You should also remember that is extremely important to leave them crushed for at least 15 minutes.
Let them sit for that amount of time because in that time, the garlic releases an enzyme – allicin, which produces these anti-fungal and anti-cancer properties. Some people eat the garlic raw, but some people like it when it’s cooked. There are many different ways you can incorporate garlic into your healthy diet. You can add it to your favorite sandwiches, your favorite meals or salads. Make sure you avoid using garlic supplements, because, according to the medical experts, they don’t produce the same anti-cancer and anti-fungal results.
