Garlic has numerous vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that work to protect and maintain a healthy body. Garlic juice is an exceptional source of vitamin A, B6, C, E, calcium, copper, sulfur, manganese, iron, potassium, phosphorus, and selenium.

Helps to lose weight

Garlic juice is very beneficial for those who may be trying to lose weight . Due to a phytochemical found in garlic known as allicin , garlic juice helps in reducing fat levels in the body , lowers blood pressure, and increases good cholesterol.

Allicin protects the body from infections such as Salmonella , Staphylococcus and yeast thanks to being a powerful anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial. Allicin amounts decrease when garlic is cooked , juicing is the healthiest method of consuming garlic.

Studies suggest that incorporating garlic juice into your regular diet will dramatically reduce the risk of cancer by strengthening the immune system and improving the body’s ability to fight infection. Consuming garlic juice is also a useful remedy for illnesses such as asthma, colds , flu, and peptic ulcers. Also, it provides your body with more energy for the whole day.

Tips for preparing garlic juice
