Vocal Health Tip - Vocal Health Benefits of Garlic
Garlic for your allergies? YES.
Allium sativum, commonly known as garlic, is a species in the onion genus, Allium. Its close relatives include the onion, shallot, leek, chive, and rakkyo.'
For centuries, #garlic has been considered a #superfood and organic remedy for everything from preventing cancer to reducing blood pressure. When consumed on a daily basis, this heart-healthy (and potent) member of the onion family can help prevent allergic reactions.
Garlic's effects on allergies are due primarily to garlic's ability to inhibit the activity of certain enzymes which generate inflammatory prostaglandins and thromboxanes.
Garlic is also loaded with vitamin C and selenium.
*Selenium nutrition is important for good antioxidant protection, among other things*
Nutrition Fact: One cup of raw garlic provides almost 30% of the recommended daily intake for an average adult.
