Difference in the composition of a boiled, fried, or raw vegetable

Basically, there is no difference between fried or boiled food. She either draws water into herself, or, on the contrary, gives it away. Certain foods can interact with the constituents of garlic and form stable compounds.

What does a sprouted vegetable affect?

Such garlic will have a lot of fiber, which has a positive effect on digestion. If consumed raw, then all vitamins and trace elements will be delivered to the body unchanged. It is advisable for people with ulcers or gastritis not to consume this product on an empty stomach. We talked about sprouted garlic in a separate article.

What does the husk help from?

Husk can help get rid of skin problems (acne, blackheads, all sorts of ulcers).

Daily maximum dosage

The effect on the human body is as follows: garlic has a direct effect on the acidity of the stomach. When any food is eaten, the taste buds signal the gastrointestinal tract what concentration of gastric juice needs to be prepared in order to digest the given food. If you eat too much garlic on an empty stomach, the acidity will increase and can harm the stomach wall or cause heartburn. If it were not for this fact, the body would always choose the highest concentration in order to definitely digest all the food.

Do not consume more than 120 grams of a vegetable at a time, then you will definitely not have problems with side effects.

Do I need to take it every day?

If a person has indigestion, allergies, individual intolerance to the composition, then it is better to limit garlic or completely refuse, and in all other cases, the only problem will be bad breath.

Reference! Garlic is rich in magnesium, which increases stress resistance, and calcium, which is beneficial not only for bones and teeth, but also for the health of the central nervous system.

In what diseases can a body odor appear?

First of all, it is poisoning. The heat and the smell of eaten food that comes out with sweat is mixed with acetone, which sometimes accompanies poisoning. This creates the smell of garlic or stale onions. With atrophy or dysfunction of the sebaceous glands, a similar smell is also observed, because sebum is similar in smell to garlic. In more detail about why there is a smell from the body, from the mouth or secretions after using garlic, as well as whether it is dangerous, we wrote here.

Why does it heal?

Despite its small size, garlic contains a small amount of water, so the amount of nutrients per 100 grams will be higher than that of other vegetables.
