Garlic helps in detoxification which is very important when it comes to keeping your liver healthy. Garlic helps in detoxification because it is rich in allicin, an antioxidant which protects your body from oxidative damage. Allicin stimulates the liver and activates enzymes which flush out toxic substances. After you chop your garlic allow it sometime before using it. You should know that heating the garlic will destroy the qualities of the allicin. So if you have to take garlic, you will have to take it raw or buy capsules that contain allicin available in pharmacies. Take 1 clove of garlic per day and 2 teaspoons of chopped garlic in food. Garlic is also of great help to anyone who wants to lose weight or a person who is obese.
