Uses of garlic you did not know
1. Toothache anesthetic
Toothache is one of the most difficult pains to cope with and, in addition, for some reason it always gives you night and does not allow you to sleep. To relieve it (then you should go to the dentist), you just have to apply chopped garlic and put it on the tooth. This will reduce the pain, since it has a high sulfur content, which together with its other properties reduces inflammation.
2. Cholesterol reducer
Reducing bad cholesterol is sometimes not a simple task, but it is very important to do so because it directly affects your health. Consuming 2 cloves of garlic a day (you can swallow it like a normal pill) helps considerably to reduce it, and this is proven by the Institute of Toxicology at Shandong University in China.
By containing allicin, garlic becomes an ideal antiseptic, fungicide and bactericide. For example, if you have fungus on your feet, make a paste with several garlic cloves, put it in hot water and dip your foot there for a few minutes. Do it for a few days and you will notice its improvement.
4. Cough remedy
Having a cough is something very annoying and difficult to relieve, tea with honey, lemon, and so many other medications that at bedtime are not enough. You can fight it with garlic, since it acts as an expectorant, antibacterial and decongestant at the same time. The remedy is simple (although, like most, it is not very pleasant in taste): make a boiling infusion of garlic cloves with oregano. This is infallible to cure cough.
5. Possible anticancer
Garlic is recognized as one of the possible vegetables with anticancer properties by the National Cancer Institute.
What remains is to determine the exact amount of garlic needed to reduce the risk of cancer, although the World Health Organization (WHO) is already recommending a daily dose of 2 to 5 g of garlic.
