The Power of Garlic
The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates, often called the father of Western medicine, used to prescribe garlic to treat a variety of medical conditions. Modern times are no different, with much research confirming the health benefits of garlic.
Garlic is loaded with bioactive compounds, like allicin, which gives it strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and other healing properties. It has been shown to improve cholesterol levels, combat high blood pressure, and its antioxidants are believed to prevent cell damage and aging, in turn preventing serious illnesses like Alzheimer’s and dementia.
And like much of what we love at Kosterina, it is an ingredient that not only provides health benefits but also tastes and smells delicious!
