Garlic In Your Diet

Garlic In Your Diet

Garlic In Your Diet – Garlic, an essential ingredient in many cuisines, not only enhances the flavor of many dishes but also provides a host of well documented health benefits as well. Touted as a ‘nature’s wonder drug’, nature’s antibiotic, nature’s penicillin, it can be easily incorporated into your daily diet either raw or cooked with meals or as health supplements. A daily dose of garlic is a great natural remedy to improve your health. Being pungent in flavor and warm in nature makes it especially good as a spring, fall, and winter diet supplement.

Nordic Diet Benefits – Northern countries have invested much time and energy researching the benefits of this diet for their citizens. But interestingly, they may do better looking a bit closer to home: recent findings from scientists in northern Europe suggest that foods from Scandinavian countries can provide a more convenient alternative for those not living in warmer climates. For example, research from the University of Agder, Norway, has shown that native berries from northern Europe such as blueberries, cowberries and cloudberries contain as much unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids as fish per unit of energy and that these berries are rich in antioxidants, key for preventing heart disease, stroke and cancer.
