Health benefits of garlic

For centuries now, garlic has been touted as one of the healthiest foods. Compounds from digested garlic are processed by red blood cells and turned into cell messenger hydrogen sulfide (H2S) causing blood vessels to relax and increase in blood flow. The end result is reduced risk of heart diseases. Garlic is also a powerful natural antibiotic, but unlike other antibiotics it doesn’t have the property of killing off the healthy bacteria too.

Health benefits of honey

It’s no wonder that honey is called the nectar of gods and men. Not only it tastes good, it is also beneficial for your health. Just like garlic, honey has been seen as a treasure of medical and nutritional values for centuries. It contains various vitamins including niacin, riboflavin, B6, some amino acids and minerals such as copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium, zinc, etc. It contains natural antioxidants which can help in eliminating free radicals in the body and thus build your immunity against sickness. It is also a great source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to your body. Besides all that, it contains anti-microbial properties which are in charge of rejuvenating the skin.

Thank you very much. I will mix some of this up soon. I don't get sick very often or even at all except for maybe a minor cold once in a while. Thanks to my daily intake of apple cider vinegar and oil pulling, my immune system has been in top shape.

I think many grandmas in the past had it right with hot toddies. Of course, many times a little secret sauce was added in, but the principle and the basics were the same.
