Garlic fights the common cold
Thanks to…natural antibiotics
The science: A typical adult will contract an average of two to four colds every year, according to the NHS. But an adult who loads up their dishes with garlic at every opportunity will likely find themselves afflicted less frequently.
“Garlic boasts powerful anti-bacteria, anti-yeast and anti-virus properties,” says Emma Vanlint, a nutritional therapist based in Harley Street. “As a large percentage of our immunity comes from our gut, eating lots of garlic can help to keep bacteria, viruses and ill health at bay.”
