In traditional Chinese medicine, garlic is useful in expanding blood vessels, and reducing blood pressure and blood sugar. Two garlic cloves with honey taken everyday on a long-term basis can eliminate thrombosis and protect the liver.
How to prepare the recipe:
Heat the garlic in a microwave for 1-2 minutes, or soak it in hot water for 5 minutes, then soak it in honey for 1 week — it is then ready to eat. To get rid of the spicy smell of the garlic, you can soak it in 30 percent salt water for a while, dry it, and then soak it in honey. Water or lemonade can be added for extra flavor.
Minerals and sugar in the honey, combined with the nutritious elements in garlic, can also elevate the function of the liver and protect the gastric mucosa.
It is best to take this garlic mixture after dinner because the body absorbs the nutritious elements better during sleep, when the stimulation to the stomach by the garlic is reduced.
