Fight seasonal flu by eating garlic

Garlic can fight illness including the common cold. The effects of garlic are known to boost the immune system.

A 12-week study found that a daily garlic supplement reduced the number of colds by 63% compared to a pain reliever medication.

Also, the average number of cold symptoms of those who consumed garlic was reduced by 70% compared to those who took medication.

Another study found that a high dose of garlic extract (2.56 grams per day) reduced the chance of getting the flu./(EO)
