What Garlic Does to Your Liver

The liver is one of the most important organs in the body with its functions being to purify and detoxify the blood, store vitamins and minerals, and make vital proteins. Despite the immune system protecting the body from dangers or illness, it is the purpose of the liver also to protect the immune system from overloading.

Our livers are put under serious strain whenever we consume large amounts of alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, refined sugars, and saturated fats since they make them fatty. Having all this in mind, it's better to know that garlic may protect the liver against diseases.

Garlic is a superfood and an antioxidant that hosts powerful health benefits. It also contains sulfur compounds as well as vitamins and minerals that help with liver detoxification. Numerous studies have shown that eating raw garlic or garlic powder helps reduce fat accumulation on the liver and reduces the risk of fatty liver diseases in men. Taking raw garlic has also been linked to the prevention of liver cancer.

Garlic might be sour if consumed raw but it is for our health benefits. It's time you add it among your recipes.
