Bread, Pasta, and Good Health May Go Together

By Tom Herrin

There are plenty of formulas that different people have for exactly how to improve or protect their health.  It may range from the somewhat simple to the really bizarre. As a school principal, I once knew a kid who wore a turpentine poultice because her mom claimed it kept away illness.  With its strong odor, it certainly kept away people. Another thing that is often associated with an odor and can add considerable flavor to food and also do some good things for health.  Garlic may have a bad reputation for the odor, but it is available in odorless supplements so that even those with thin skin or sensitive noses can reap the benefits.

It May Be Great for Blood Pressure

A lot of people suffer from issues with blood pressure.  Some of it is due to diet while some is due to lifestyle.  Sometimes it may be largely genetic. Either way, there is quite a bit of need for people to address the problem.  Many use a variety of medications. While some are successful, others are not so much. In one study, people who took medication for high blood pressure with poor results had good results when they took 1 gram of garlic per day.  Their reduction was significant. It seems that the polysulphides in garlic help the blood vessels to expand under stress.

It May Help Remove Toxins

People accumulate quite a bit of unwanted substances in their bodies.  Some of these are metals that are very toxic. Garlic is able to help to remove some of these toxins, many of which are known to cause cancer or organ failure.  Particularly for those who work in jobs where there is more exposure to these metals, garlic may be a very useful herb to add to the diet.

It May Enhance Flavor

We like to use garlic in preparing food.  It always goes well with breads. We eat it in pastas, some soups, tacos, a lot of meat dishes, and whatever else we can think of.  It seems that as long as we don’t go overboard on it, I don’t notice that much odor. It may show up in some individuals more than others.  My opinion is that they have different body chemistry, but you can put that info with a dollar and buy a bottle of water. If you are in for a little experimenting, try adding more garlic to your foods. It may preserve your health far more than you realize.
