Benefits of drinking garlic juice on an empty stomach

There is no doubt that, for the months of autumn and winter, if there is a very beneficial food for health during this time of year for its different protective properties against flu, colds and colds, that is the Garlic. It consists of a species of plant belonging to the Liliaceae family, known scientifically with the name of Allium sativum. It has a bulb of white skin, which is formed by a head divided into segments, which are commonly known by the name of teeth (garlic cloves, to be more precise).

Although it is used in the kitchen as a condiment, especially in stir-fries, broths and fried foods, the truth is that for a very long time it has also been used - in a traditional and very popular way - in different home and natural remedies, thanks to its healing qualities and medicinal properties. Among these most important benefits we can mention its qualities when it comes to lowering high cholesterol and high triglycerides, thanks to its ability to decrease platelet aggregation while increasing fibrinolytic activity. This is why it is so interesting when it comes to naturally treating both arteriosclerosis and cerebrovascular accidents.

In recent years it has become very popular drink garlic juice fasting, completely raw, as a way to enjoy its different healing qualities. Of course, although it is a natural and healthy option, it is not recommended for those who suffer from digestive and stomach upset every time they eat garlic, or for those who suffer from allergy or garlic intolerance.

Properties of garlic juice

Wonderful natural detoxifier

The garlic juice drunk on an empty stomach, as happens with the warm water with lemon, is a excellent natural detoxifier, especially recommended to detoxify our body and purify it since we started the day.

In this sense, different scientific studies have been able to confirm that a regular consumption of garlic juice helps prevent and reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases, as for example is the case of diabetes. We can also mention its richness in antioxidants, which help prevent cell damage.

Helps reduce cholesterol and triglycerides

Whether you have high cholesterol or triglyceride levels (or both), garlic juice helps reduce high levels of fats in the blood, thanks to the presence of allicin, a sulfur compound found in garlic that only appears when we crush or cut it. This is the compound responsible for garlic being so effective in reducing cholesterol and triglycerides.

It is also very interesting in case of arterial hypertension, because thanks to its ability to decrease platelet aggregation and increase fibrinolytic activity, improves blood circulation.

Excellent natural antibiotic

Garlic juice acts as a natural antibiotic, thanks to the fact that a regular and daily consumption of this natural beverage helps eliminate bacteria from our body. Likewise, helps strengthen the immune system, hence the consumption of regular garlic juice helps when avoiding or preventing colds and flu.

Good intestinal disinfectant

The garlic juice acts as an antifungal, becoming in turn an excellent intestinal disinfectant.

How to prepare garlic juice for fasting

To make the garlic juice you only need 1 head of garlic. First remove the cloves of the garlic head. Place one by one each clove of garlic in a mortar and mash well until you extract all its juice. If you want, you can put them in the glass of a blender and liquefy them well.

Once done, strain the chopped garlic through a sieve. Finally drink the resulting liquid.

You can drink the garlic juice every morning on an empty stomach. Of course, if you start to feel digestive or stomach discomfort should avoid it and replace it with some other remedy to drink on an empty stomach, as for example is the case olive oil with lemon juice.
