In summer, eat garlic for health preservation, heat clearing, disinfection and fat burning
Garlic has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, which can protect the liver, regulate blood sugar and protect cardiovascular system. Nutrition experts have found that garlic extract has an anti-tumor effect. It is recommended to eat 3-5 grams of garlic raw every day. If garlic is eaten too much, it will hurt the spleen, lungs, liver, ears, phlegm and cough.
There are many benefits of garlic in summer diet
Garlic is bactericidal, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer
Garlic is best known for its bactericidal function, because it not only contains protein, vitamin E, vitamin C, calcium, iron, selenium and other trace elements, but also has special substances to enhance human immunity and Allicin with great bactericidal power, so it can diminish inflammation, sterilize and prevent cancer. The anti-cancer effect of garlic is particularly effective in the "start-up stage" of tumors. The sulfur compounds in garlic can prevent the formation of cancer by enhancing the detoxification function and interfering with the activation of carcinogens, and the trace element selenium contained in garlic can also kill cancer cells and reduce the incidence rate of cancer.
Garlic reduces blood lipids and helps lose weight
Recent studies have proved that garlic also has the effect of diluting blood, reducing blood lipids and preventing thrombosis. The reason is that some substances contained in garlic can inhibit the activity of enzymes that produce fat and cholesterol in the liver, which can not only effectively reduce the concentration of plasma cholesterol, but also prevent and reduce the accumulation of arterial fat plaques. Because it can inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver, garlic also has unexpected effects in controlling obesity.
Nutritious eating method: cooked or raw depends on the intestines and stomach
Garlic is warm in nature and tastes pungent and flat. Its strong "lethality" will not only kill the pathogenic bacteria in the intestines, but also kill the beneficial bacteria in the intestines. Therefore, eating too much will easily lead to angular stomatitis, glossitis, stomatitis and cheilitis. People with Yin deficiency and fire, gastritis, gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, nephritis, heart disease and constipation should eat less. Ordinary adults can eat three or four cloves of garlic every day, and be careful not to eat on an empty stomach. When garlic is crushed, alliin and alliinase in it will synthesize allicin. Therefore, garlic is better eaten raw. If the stomach is really unbearable, you can also eat processed cooked garlic.
Supplement: compared with garlic seedlings with the same bactericidal effect, the protein content of every 100g of garlic is 4.5g, which is more than twice that of equal weight garlic seedlings, the carbohydrate content is 26.5G, which is nearly four times that of garlic seedlings, and the potassium content is 302 mg, which is more than twice that of garlic seedlings. In addition, garlic also contains allicin, citral, germanium and other substances.
