Health Benefits of Garlic Milk:  

Garlic Milk is a great drink, which boosts our overall health. Let's know about it in detail;

1. Strengthens Immunity against Cold and Flu

  • Colds, stuffy noses, and the flu are very common during the rainy season and winter. All these infectious diseases can be treated and prevented with garlic milk. A study found that garlic actually helps in reducing the chances of cold, helping in the treatment of various winter diseases, and ensuring a faster recovery. 

  • Mixing it well with warm milk- a wonderful drink that many like to take in the cold months-makes this treatment much more satisfying and pleasing for both you and your children. 

2. Prevents Constipation

  • As per Ayurveda, many bowel problems such as constipation and bloating result from an imbalance in the physiological and mental component known as Vata, which refers to the space and air that a person has. The same disturbance that presents in Vata is associated with the cold and stiffness that characterizes humans, and that's why foods that are opposite in nature, namely warm and pleasant, can prevent this problem.  

  • Undoubtedly, garlic milk falls into the category of warm and smooth foods and that's why it may help you relieve various stomach problems, as per the traditional healing method. 

3. Prevents Acne

  • One of the main reasons for the appearance of acne on our skin is the presence of a variety of bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes, which proliferates when the glands inside the skin are blocked and that's why creates an inflammatory response in the skin, which further results in the development of pimples.  

  • Garlic contains many sulfur compounds that prevent the proliferation of these harmful bacteria, as per a study published in 2017. Hence drinking garlic along with milk can boost garlic's ability to prevent acne because various components of the mixture are absorbed by the blood and then excreted from the body through sweating- which permits the compounds to harm the bacteria deep in the pores of the skin and destroy it, leaving your skin clean and smooth. 

4. Keeps Heart Healthy

  • Undoubtedly, heart health is one of the most important health concerns for all of us as, without the proper functioning of this huge pump, our body simply can't survive. That's why, it's very important to know that compound allicin, which presents in generous doses in garlic, has been proven in many studies as a sedative, relaxing and preventing various heart diseases such as hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. 

  • To harness the proper benefits of garlic in the supply of allicin to the heart, it is advised that you drink garlic milk on daily basis and enjoy all benefits. 

5. Reduces the Risk of Cancer

  • There are a number of components of garlic that have been found in various studies as powerful antioxidants that can destroy the free radicals that harm the composition of DNA and this is the leading cause of the development of cancer.  

  • Considering this, it is certainly possible to estimate that garlic milk may have positive effects on the prevention of the development of cancerous tumors throughout our bodies. 

6. Controls Diabetes

  • Moreover, garlic has also been found to be good for maintaining blood glucose levels, controlling diabetes, and preventing long-term complications associated with this disease.  

  • As per a study, garlic enhances and strengthens the effect of metformin, the world's most widely used drug for treating diabetes.  

  • Not only this, consuming garlic help reduce blood sugar levels, but it also leads to a reduction in the level of cholesterol and harmful triglyceride along with it. 

7. Treats Joint Pain

  • The mixture of these two components i.e. Garlic & Milk, form a unique mixture that have anti-inflammatory properties, which can be of great help in reducing joint inflammation and relieving the pain associated with it.  

  • Apart from this, calcium content found in milk is a significant contributor to the bone health and body strengthening, two effects that make it easier to deal with problems such as arthritis.
