The Health Benefits of Garlic

Hundreds of years ago, garlic was used as a medicine for anything from nausea to the Black Plague. Though it may not, in reality, be the wonder-drug that our ancestors thought it was, it still boasts a host of impressive nutritional properties that have been confirmed by modern science. Making this amazing clove a bigger part of your diet gives you benefits that are well worth the occasional bouts of bad breath!

Garlic’s best attributes come in the form of its antibiotic and blood cleansing properties. It is able to protect you from viruses and harmful microbes, and never allows these viruses to develop an immunity to it. Further, people who eat a lot of garlic are known to enjoy a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, as the allicin found in garlic prevents LDL cholesterol from being oxidised.

At our Japanese restaurant in Lynnwood, you can get your daily dose of garlic in the form of our garlic edamame, our seven spice seared tuna, our grilled garlic salmon, our bulgogi, and more. Come and get more of the great taste and powerful health benefits of garlic with Wild Wasabi today!
