Folk medicine believes garlic to be able to cure almost everything, from the common cold and flu to plague!

Garlic is composed of nitrogenous substances, selenium, calcium, magnesium, extractives, sodium, silicon, sulfuric, phosphoric acid, vitamin C, D, B, phytosterols, potassium, and essential oils.

Moreover, garlic is rich in phytoncides, such as allicin, which is formed by the mechanical destruction of plants, that is – crushing or grinding cloves of garlic.
