Garlic - A Little Goes a Long Way

Although garlic may be your go-to in the kitchen or something you tend to avoid due to its lingering affect on your breath, most people don’t realize the surprising health benefits of it. It is highly nutritious but has very few calories, it helps combat sickness by boosting functions of the immune system, can reduce blood pressure, and improves cholesterol levels. For those who tend to stray away from using garlic, try incorporating it in more of your dishes to reap these health benefits, just don't forget to chew some gum after you're done with your meal.
