Like Garlic? Let me tell you why you may want to consider taking your relationship to the next level and falling in LOVE with this antioxidant powerhouse. πŸ’˜ Studies show that garlic has potent antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-cancer properties thanks to a VIC (very important compound 😊) called ALLICIN. Garlic has also been found to prevent blood clotting, lower blood pressure, and reduce inflammation - athletes and fitness freaks listen up! 
Did you know that crushing, slicing or chopping it actually makes its nutrients more available? Any of the above help release the allicin. If you let the crushed/chopped garlic rest for about 5 minutes the process is enhanced even more. Always add it to your cooking close to the end, to prevent the allicin being destroyed by the heat. **Fun tip, chopping and juicing carrots has a similar effect as their carotenoids are more fully released by crushing. 
I was feeling a little under the weather β˜” today and realized my immune system probably needed a boost. Grated some garlic and added it to my lightly sautΓ©ed greens this morning. How do you like yours?
