Did you know?
By crushing or chopping garlic, we are stimulating the production of allicin, an active ingredient that acts as a therapeutic agent. That being said, cooking garlic could prohibit the release of some of its the medicinal properties.
And here’s a tip for all garlic lovers who are looking for a palate cleanser after eating garlic raw – try chewing on some fresh parsley!
