What You Need To Know About the Side Effects of Garlic
Now that modern day research has supported historically primitive medicinal practices in which garlic (especially raw) acts as a powerful antibacterial supplement, more people are working it into their everyday diets. With the good, inevitably comes a balancing shadow causing discomfort in exchange for boosted immunity. We all know of it though most do not understand the scientific complexity lurking behind the scenes, nor what remedies exist to minimize the burden.
The price we pay for the natural sterilization of Campylobacter jejuni “The most prevalent cause of bacterial food-borne illness in the world.” (Xiaonan Lu) is something we despise in our friends and family yet seldom notice in ourselves. Don’t get too overwhelmed with fright. The villain referred to is no other than garlic odor! Simplicity solely lies in the solution as it goes much further beyond pieces stuck between your teeth or oil saturating your tongue. Garlic stench is a very real chemical side effect of ingesting one of nature’s best miracle drugs.
This smell actually occupies your blood after ingestion and is received by a disgruntled close encounter via your lungs, nostrils, mouth, and pores for up to several days. Studies interested in naturally neutralizing this odor explored the idea of cow’s milk as an ingestible deodorant. Research concurs that lactose has nothing to do with freshening your presence. Thankfully this time and money spent on researching such an obscure theory was not in vain.
