We don’t know about you, but around here we cannot get enough garlic! When a recipe calls for garlic, we tend to double it. If we could bathe in garlic, we would (okay maybe not but you get our point).
It’s no wonder why we created a Garlic Parmesan Biscuit. It was like the combination of all things great: Biscuits, cheese and garlic!!
What’s even better, turns out there’s some sneaky, powerful side effects that garlic carries with it. Making us love it even more.
Helps Strengthen Your Immune System
According to the Journal of Immunology Research, garlic stimulates various types of cells in our body that can improve our immunity. Additionally, in a separate study it found that a daily dose of garlic led to less severe cold/flu symptoms on top of less time actually being sick. Sign us up!
Improves Cognitive Function
Some research has fun that garlic has been known to lower chances of cognitive decline while simultaneously improving memory and retention. It may also be able to fight off heart disease and prevent dementia because of its antioxidant properties.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Consuming garlic OR garlic products has been shown to have positive effects on lowering blood pressure too! As if you needed another reason to eat more garlic.
Who knew that garlic was not only amazingly delicious but powerful too! Moral of the story: eat more garlic.
