🍎 Today’s Health Tip ~ Will Garlic Protect You from COVID?

Garlic – Supports a Healthy Immune Response

Eating plenty of garlic makes social distancing easier, for sure. However, the bulb in itself has not been shown to protect against COVID-19.Β “Garlic is a healthy food that may have some antimicrobial properties,” according to messaging from the World Health Organization. “There is no evidence from the current outbreak that eating garlic has protected people against the new coronavirus.”Β Garlic (like ginger) has antiviral and antibacterial properties, and can help support a healthy immune response. “It important to pay attention to how much you are consuming. In excess, garlic and ginger can increase a person’s risk of bleeding – particularly for those who are on blood thinners.”
