Benefits of drinking garlic juice on an empty stomach

The juice or garlic juice on an empty stomach is a natural drink with many benefits and health properties, especially if it is taken every day. We discover its most important qualities.

There is no doubt that, for the autumn and winter months, if there is a very beneficial food for health during this time of year due to its different protective properties against flu, colds and colds, that is garlic. It consists of a species of plant belonging to the lily family, scientifically known by the name of Allium sativum. It has a bulb with white skin, which is formed by a head divided into segments, which are commonly known as teeth (garlic cloves, to be more precise).

Although it is used in the kitchen as a condiment, especially in stir-fries, broths and fried foods, the truth is that for a long time it has also been used – in a traditional and very popular way – in different home and natural remedies, thanks to its healing qualities and medicinal properties. Among those most important benefits we can mention its qualities when it comes to lowering high cholesterol and high triglycerides, thanks to the fact that it is capable of reducing platelet aggregation while increasing fibrinolytic activity. That is why it is so interesting when it comes to naturally treating both arteriosclerosis and strokes.

In recent years it has become very popular to drink garlic juice on an empty stomach, completely raw, as a way to enjoy its different healing qualities. Of course, although it is a natural and healthy option, it is not recommended for those who suffer from digestive and stomach upset every time they eat garlic, or for those who suffer from an allergy or intolerance to garlic.

Garlic juice properties

Wonderful natural detoxifier

Garlic juice drunk on an empty stomach, as with warm water with lemon, is an excellent natural detoxifier, especially recommended to detoxify our body and purify it from the beginning of the day.

In this sense, different scientific studies have been able to verify that a regular consumption of garlic juice helps to prevent and reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases, such as diabetes. We can also mention its richness in antioxidants, which help prevent cell damage.

Helps reduce cholesterol and triglycerides

Whether you have high levels of cholesterol or triglycerides (or both), garlic juice helps reduce high levels of fats in the blood , thanks to the presence of allicin, a sulfur compound that we find in garlic and that only appears when we crush or cut it. This is the compound responsible for garlic being so effective in lowering cholesterol and triglycerides.

It is also very interesting in case of arterial hypertension, since thanks to the fact that it is capable of reducing platelet aggregation and increasing fibrinolytic activity, it improves blood circulation.

Excellent natural antibiotic

Garlic juice acts as a natural antibiotic, thanks to the fact that a regular and daily consumption of this natural drink helps to eliminate bacteria from our body. It also helps to strengthen the immune system, hence the consumption of regular garlic juice helps to avoid or prevent colds and flu.

Good intestinal disinfectant

Garlic juice acts as an antifungal, in turn becoming an excellent intestinal disinfectant.

How to prepare garlic juice to drink on an empty stomach?

To make the garlic juice you only need 1 head of garlic. First remove the cloves from the garlic head. Place each garlic clove one by one in a mortar and mash them well until all their juice is extracted. If you wish, you can put them in the glass of a blender and blend them well.

Once this is done, strain the minced garlic, passing them through a strainer. Finally drink the resulting liquid.

You can drink the garlic juice every morning on an empty stomach. Of course, if you start to feel digestive or stomach discomfort you should avoid it and substitute some other remedy to drink on an empty stomach, such as olive oil with lemon juice.
