BEAUTY BENEFITS OF GARLIC:
Garlic contains a compound called allicin, a powerful sulfur compound helping to provide both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial protection to the body. This helps to control bacteria and viruses while supporting your immune system to keep you feeling fabulous! It helps to promote a clear complexion, cleansing your body of nasty bacteria and soothing inflammation, allowing you to feel gorgeous and refreshed. Helping to keep your skin clear and free of free radicals and bacteria means garlic is a savior, it helps to create a clear, bright complexion!
Try to include at least half a clove in your individual serving. Finely dice or crush the garlic and add it either raw, cooked or baked whole. It goes beautifully added into stir frys – cook the garlic for 30 seconds before adding in the other ingredients to enhance its gorgeous flavour.
Allicin is released when the clove is chopped, crushed or chewed. Letting the garlic sit for a few minutes after chopping or crushing allows as much allicin to released as possible – once it begins to cook, no more will be released.
