Garlic is a popular and easily accessible superspice that is abundant in its incredible healing properties. Garlic keeps you fit, healthy and happy. There are many ways to consume it and a ton of recipes that call for it.

One of the easiest and most potent ways to ingest garlic is by juicing it. Here are some of the reasons why!

  • Helps asthma: A mixture of a few drops of garlic juice, honey and a glass of water may help in controlling an asthma attack.
  • Balances your cholesterol: Drinking garlic juice can reduce the thickening, hardening and shrinking of arteries.
  • Helps coughs and sore throats: Mixing garlic juice and hot water can ease sore throats and coughs. Adding some pomegranate juice is an added bonus with antioxidant benefits.
  • Aids hair growth: Apply some garlic juice on your bald spots twice a day and leave it until it dries. You may see results within days.
  • Helps insect bites: Use it topically by massaging garlic juice on your bites for instant relief.
  • Controls infertility: Drinking a combination of few few drops of garlic juice with warm milk (almond or coconut) may control infertility in women.
