Garlic is a powerful antioxidant with antimicrobial, antiviral and antibiotic properties.
I have also found that as a Garlic Cold Remedy, it provides decongestant and expectorant effects when I have a cold.
I am not a doctor, obviously. Additionally, Science has not isolated the components of garlic responsible for medicinal effects. However, I have had good experience that garlic does a great job at preventing and remedying colds.
I would have to say, that even if it is only psychosomatic, the vitamin C, enzymes, and minerals such as sulfur and selenium, definitely help my body.
Allicin is the Active Ingredient
Allicin is the powerful antibacterial agent found in garlic. Since Allicin is only present shortly after garlic is crushed and before it is heated. Eating fresh garlic is best for treating a cold or flu.
As I mention in the video some experts even recommend eating a clove or two every couple of hours until the bug is entirely gone.
However, this may play havoc on your social schedule. Later in the video I share a tip to help that. However, the main purpose is to show how to make a cough syrup that makes the garlic a little easier to swallow.
Basically all I did was to blend garlic with apple cider vinegar, strain, and bottle. In the video I also added some other ingredients for taste and to add to the tincture’s effectiveness.
This is something that works well for me. I believe garlic belongs in every prepper’s garden as it is a powerful anti-bacteria, as well as a much needed seasoning agent.
I hope this works for you.
