Garlique

So, we’ve been rocking the garlic all winter, especially me, and haven’t suffered any colds.  I’d venture to say that Bill’s have been less severe.  I’m fairly certain we’re not in the 8 to 12 clove-a-day range, but definitely a few a day.

I just saw this article in the NY Post Well blogs about the benefits of garlic.  While it’s among many hundreds of articles out there written about the benefits of garlic, I haven’t heard this before:

To maximize the health benefits, you should crush the garlic at room temperature and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. That triggers an enzyme reaction that boosts the healthy compounds in garlic.

Whether garlic’s health-boosting properties are as wondrous as sometimes claimed or not, it’s one of the tastier natural remedies, so it’s going to stay on the Robbins menu!
