Garlic: The secret weapon to fight a bad cold

It’s been passed through generations, and today you will learn why your grandma always took out the garlic cloves when you said you were feeling like you were coming down with a cold.

Garlic, after being sliced or crushed, enhances compounds in it capable of killing a wide variety of organisms, including viruses and bacteria that can cause colds.

So here is a handy & healthy, diet-friendly alternative that you can take instead of those sugary cold syrups:

1.     Take a clove of garlic and cut or chop it into pieces.

2.     Leave the garlic to sit for 10-15minutes.

3.     Put the garlic on a teaspoon and swallow it.

4.     Drink a full glass of water after that


You might want to do this at night, so that you don’t have garlic breath throughout the day, and also to allow your body to rest afterwards. The garlic might make you feel slightly feverish, this means the garlic is working.

You can do this without deviating from the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method; just don’t forget any meals, to drink enough water or to take all your vitamins. If you are still feeling down the next day, just repeat this, sometimes it takes more than one try.
