PREPARATION IS KEY!

A few little tips when cooking... When Garlic is crushed, chopped or chewed, the enzyme Allicin is released. This enzyme holds a host of healthful benefits, but can be blocked if microwaved for more than 1 minute, or cooked for more than 6 minutes.


Once chopped or crushed, leave to stand for 10 minutes and add to the cooking for a maximum of 6 minutes before serving.


There’re many ways of incorporating garlic into your meals, including hearty warm soups, stir-frys and homemade sauces.

Garlic can interfere with warfarin enhancing its effects.
