Magical Potion Before You Go To Bed at Night
Finely chop up 2 cloves of fresh garlic and let it expose to the air for 5-6 minutes because during the chopping it is released a garlic enzyme known as alliinase.
You should gather the chopped garlic in a spoon and swallow it along with water. During the night, garlic will go through your entire digestive tract, neutralizing all the harmful bacteria, viruses, toxins, and carcinogens before they damage your healthy cells.
As we mentioned previously, garlic contains sulfur compounds that will detoxify your liver of blood toxins, lead and various harmful heavy metals. Swallowing the garlic will not cause a garlic breath as long as you don’t chew it. In the morning, don’t forget to drink a big glass of water!
Note: Garlic is considered as a powerful medicinal herb. 1-2 raw cloves a day is enough to obtain its maximum benefits. For cooking, you can use a little more.
Make sure to avoid taking garlic with other anti-coagulant drugs because of its blood-thinning properties. As we said before, you should avoid taking large quantities of garlic. Even though it rarely occurs, the excessive consumption of garlic can lead to health problems including diarrhea, excessive gas, and anemia!
