Garlic cures

You may dislike the smell of it, but garlic does have a beneficial purpose on this Earth.

One thing is certain, there is no shortage of garlic in Spain. Aren’t we lucky?

Allicin and the sulphur compounds of garlic are the two main ingredients for its potency as an antibiotic, anti-viral and fungicide. They also help to contain high blood pressure, cholesterol and help to prevent certain types of cancer while acting as immune stimulants.

When fresh garlic is crushed or chewed, the merging together of alliin and allinase elements create Allicin which is a strong antibiotic.
Garlic has been used in herbal medicine to treat asthma, deafness, leprosy, bronchial congestion, and hardening of arteries, fevers, worms, liver, gall bladder problems, vaginal infections and even piles.

The juice of garlic has a beneficial effect on the entire system and it helps to dissolve an accumulation of mucus in the sinus cavities, bronchial tubes and lungs.

The unpleasant smell is due to the sulphur content within its volatile oil, which has remarkable healing properties.
