Once you take a bite of the pungent and spicy "stinking rose", you'll instantly know if you love it or...not. Long used for food and medicine, garlic boasts many health benefits. Master herbalist, Susun Weed, has this to say:
"Garlic is a great friend to old hearts. Several cloves a day of fresh, raw garlic can lower blood pressure, reduce phospholipids and cholesterol, strengthen heart action, increase immune response, reduce platelet clumping and clotting (thus reducing strokes), and stabilize blood sugar levels.
Garlic and its smelly relatives (onions, chives, and leeks) are hormone-rich plants that most women crave. Garlic is an excellent source of phytoestrogens; these hormone-like substances not only reduce cancer incidence, they help ease the menopausal passage."
Infusing garlic into honey brings together both of their anti-microbial actions making it a tasty winter medicine to combat colds and flu. A daily spoonful can boost the immune system, reducing your chances of getting a cold or flu. If you've already been exposed, garlic honey can break up lung congestion, soothe a sore throat and reduce the severity of the infection.
Because this herbal preparation contains honey, it is not advised for use in children under 1 year of age.
