How To Use Garlic
The fact that allicin, known as the active compound of garlic is denaturalized by heat indicates that the best way to consume garlic is raw. In order to get the best results, you should crush and chop up the clove and let it stand for 15 minutes before consuming. In this way, a chemical reaction will be activated, which will make allicin more bioavailable.
And also it is very important to eat it on an empty stomach. When the stomach is overwhelmed with food, this can cause some difficulties for your body to absorb and process all the nutrients.
