Garlic, onions, and leeks contain an antioxidant, quercetin, that may relieve inflammation. Garlic is particularly effective. You can take about 4 cloves of raw garlic or used powdered or an aged supplement. Since that much raw garlic can upset your stomach, most experts recommend aged garlic. You’ll get the benefits without breathing and sweating garlic.
Garlic is also a cancer fighter and may lower the risk of heart disease and dementia. You can’t go wrong eating garlic!
