1. Improve the quality of your bloodstream

Garlic promotes the production of gastric juices which are essential for the correct absorption of iron. In addition to that, it’s rich in vitamins and minerals, so by consuming it you enrich your bloodstream. It also reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels so it prevents your blood from thickening, allowing it to flow normally which helps prevent cardiovascular problems.

Garlic helps your immune system stay stronger, helping to defend you against microbes and bacteria. It’s also important to keep your immune system in a healthy state to avoid critical conditions like cancer.

3. It helps you lose weight

Honey is very satisfying. When you consume garlic with honey on an empty stomach it nourishes you while also reducing your cravings for food. This reduces stress and the production of cortisol.
