Hello everyone; i know lots of people will be like; ishhhhh, garlic ke? Abegi, onto the next post jare. Yeahhhhh i said so too at some point, basically because of the smell garlic leaves in your breath and possibly skin as well. Yes skin!!! I remember years back, my friend told me how her mom prepares this garlic, ginger and honey mix that once you drink flushes your system; she told me how after 2 days of this therapy one can see trash settled on panty liners(if you wear one) or on your pants as a result of the drink cleaning our *you know what* from the inside. I was like “heck, please tell mommy to prepare me this drink”; it worked ooh, i felt very clean (i guess). Then weeks later; my sister said; “thank God that your body odour don stop”. Choiiii, apparently i smelt like garlic all through the time i took the drink. so i hated garlic for yearssssss. Fast forward, last year, i stumbled upon the benefits of garlic and that i don’t have to drink raw garlic to get it’s benefits, now there’s garlic in any meat i cook, garlic in my stew, garlic in almost every meal in my home. Here’s what i found out

This leads to smooth muscle relaxation and vasodilation (widening of blood vessels), following the relaxation of the smooth muscle in the vessel wall. Garlic supplements can also achieve these effects efficiently without the bad breath compared to raw garlic.
