According to Alexander Miroshnikov, a healthy eating specialist, garlic is a vegetable that can do both harm and good for the human body.
Nutritionist (specialist in healthy eating) Alexander Miroshnikov spoke in detail about the beneficial properties and dangers of garlic.
According to him, the most useful substance in garlic is allicin, which, together with sulfonic acids, can prevent the development of tumors and the accumulation of “bad” cholesterol. 100 grams of garlic contains half of the daily allicin requirement, and those suffering from cardiovascular diseases should eat one clove of garlic a day. In addition, garlic contains an amino acid responsible for increasing potency.
The negative properties of garlic include the presence of essential oils that provoke appetite and activate the pancreas, which is dangerous in pancreatitis. Moreover, garlic can provoke arrhythmia or tachycardia due to poor circulation, as well as the development of gallstone disease.
In addition, Miroshnikov believes that black fermented garlic is very useful for the body. It can be obtained by heating ordinary garlic to a temperature of 40-60 degrees.
