Garlic is best consumed raw because its active ingredient – allicin – loses its properties if it’s processed thermally. Crush and slice the cloves and leave it aside for 15 minutes before you eat it. When you crush the cloves, it activates a reaction that increases the allicin’s bio-availability.
It’s also best if you eat the garlic on an empty stomach because it’s easier for your body to absorb the nutrients when your stomach is not full.
