I love garlic and it's used regulary in my household, it's great in cooking, sauces and marinades but did you know that clever little garlic also does a lot more?
1. Aids weight loss!
Research shows that garlic has weight loss elements due to the compounds found inside! It makes you feel fuller, fastens your metabolism and also helps to burn fat!
2. Earache/ cold remedies
Fact garlic is a natural antibiotic! Crush a clove of garlic and mix it with some plain yogurt for some natural medicine to ease cold and flu symptoms. Also for earaches crush a clove and mix in a tablespoon of hot oil for 5 minutes. Leave to cool. Then add a couple of drops in your ear and leave to work, the pharmacies sell the same recipe drops in the shops!
Rub a little garlic oil onto the effected area 1-2 times a day. Garlic has an anti inflammatory property which will really help.
