Your daily dose of longevity !

Given the beneficial effects on important risk factors like blood pressure,  garlic could help you live longer.

My favorite way to use garlic is to chop /press a few cloves of fresh garlic then mix with extra virgin olive oil and a bit of salt. This a healthy and super satisfying dressing. However for those that can’t stand the taste and smell you can chop it leave it for 5-10 min then swallow it like a pill .

How Cooking Affects Nutrients

Heating garlic without letting it sit has been found to deactivate the enzyme that is responsible for the formation of alliicin. However, if you have allowed your garlic to sit for 5-10 minutes, you can cook it on low or medium heat for a short period of time (up to 15 minutes) without destroying the alliicin.

Cooking for:

  • 5-15 minutes — minimal loss of nutrients
  • 15-30 minutes — moderate loss of nutrients
  • 45+ minutes — substantial loss of nutrients

Your daily dose of longevity !
