Is mountain garlic is cure coronary artery disease or regular garlic is good for that
Dr. Alin Clifered
25 Aug 2016
Dear Adv.
well, I have done a lot of research on Garlic. It is an incredible herb and it is one the most important ingredient is Alicin, which is usually destroyed when we cook Garlic. So, according to my research, the best way to consume Garlic is, mash the Garlic cloves with your hand or some wooden based tool. Then leave it for 15 min and consume it with water. To tone up Your Heart You may also try Arjuna Tea, have 1 cup every day. And have 2 cups of Green tea every day.

How do i consume snow mountain garlic to get rid of heart burn, acidity and gastric problem.
Sunaaina Gupta
22 Sep 2016
Sri You should not go for this herb at all. Because those who are prone to acidity, heartburn or gastritis should avoid Garlic.
Herbs for your heart burn or acidity are--
Liquorice, Baking Soda, Banana and Basil.
For gastric problem-- take a small chunk of Ginger, chew it before every meal.
Or you may drink 10 ml of potato juice before every meal.

Becoz of its multiple benefits I eat two Kashmiri lehsun after dinner. Is there any problem if I do this daily. Currently I have no health problems, still I have it just for prevention. Also can I drink 1/2 cup of milk after that as I heard it gives u sound sleep?
14 Oct 2016
Yes, There are no side effects as such. So, you may continue with it. The herb will boost your immunity. Do not take more than 2 cloves in a day. As it may cause blood thinning, which may give rise to serious ailments. Therefore ,to be on a safer side limit the intake to one garlic clove daily or 2 cloves on alternate days.

Peel the Garlic clove. Leave it aside for 15 minutes, Do not use any metallic tool to peel it. DO it with your hand and do not let any metallic or object touch, not even a spoon. Then after 15 minutes, chew it raw. This is how garlic is most effective for the body.
