The healthiest way to use garlic, is raw. Heat can separate the allicin, and lessen its nutrition. Crushing raw garlic will add to the health benefits of allicin. You can also add any extra herbs to your recipe, like thyme leaves for extra flavor. If you’re not feeling well, a spoonful of this mixture will help fight your illness more quickly. To strengthen your immune system every day, take one spoonful in the morning, before eating or drinking anything. You’ll start having more energy, and your body will work at the highest level of health. To enjoy this mix, you can spread it on toast, use it in a salad dressing, or add it to your favorite granola recipes. Do not use for more than 7 days at the time.
