How to best use Garlic:
1. Crush the garlic 30-60 min before heating it up. Then cook as you please.
This allows the enzymes to convert aliin into allicin (among other potent compounds responsible for the many benefits of garlic).
Heating the garlic immediately after chopping or crushing robs you of dozens of beneficial little components.
2. Consume aged garlic!
Aged garlic is garlic that has been allowed to convert, or activate if you may, its beneficial goodies increasing its impact on the human body.
Aged garlic comes in many forms. You can buy pressed or filled capsules and pills, or buy it as powder for you to add to food and drinks.
Use whatever is more convenient for you and your wallet.
