I don’t know if there’s enough I can say about the benefits of Garlic, but here are 3 tips you can use so you can eat fresh raw garlic daily and NOT get bad breath. I’ll give you these tips at the end, but first you’ve got to know why people avoid eating fresh raw garlic even though it is probably the most powerful medicinal veggie in the world!
Garlic is THE Number One BAD BOY in the vegetable world. Not because of all the good it can do you, but because of the stigma about it being the WORST cause of bad breathe. This is quite ironic since many cultures even today, still worship garlic because of its medicinal powers. I’m no anthropologist, but it stands to reason that these same cultures must have lived without it, and then discovered it, to know the powerful difference it makes.
Don’t take my word for it though. Look at and consider the following reasons why you should be a garlic-eating worshiper enough to worry about bad breathe! Here’s what history and medical science have to say:
Garlic is used as both food and medicine in many cultures, and has been for thousands of years, dating at least as far back to when the Giza pyramids were built.
Garlic comes up in the Bible and the Talmud. Hippocrates, Galen, Pliny the Elder, and Dioscorides all mention the power of garlic to remedy many conditions, including parasites, respiratory problems, poor digestion, and low energy. Its use in China was only first mentioned as late as AD 510, but today China is the world’s top producer!
It was eaten on a regular basis by ancient Greek and Roman soldiers, sailors, and rural classes (Virgil, Ecologues ii. 11), and, according to Pliny the Elder (Natural History xix. 32), by the African peasantry. Galen promotes it as the “rustic’s theriac” (cure-all) (see F. Adams’ Paulus Aegineta, p. 99), and Alexander Neckam, a writer of the 12th century (see Wright’s edition of his works, p. 473, 1863), recommends it as a remedy for heat stroke.
The legend of Korea’s establishment as a nation, tells of gods who were said to have given mortal women with bear and tiger temperaments, an Immortal’s black garlic before mating with them. This black, six-clove garlic gave to all women who ate it, supernatural powers and immortality. This garlic is still grown in Korea today.
