How Garlic Fights Colds and The Flu :
One study gave 146 healthy volunteers either garlic supplements or a placebo for three months. The garlic group had a 63% lower risk of getting a cold, and their colds were also 70% shorter (11).
If you often get sick with a cold or flu, eating garlic can help reduce your symptoms or prevent your illness entirely.
Garlic Can Boost Immune Function :
Whole garlic contains a compound called alliin. When garlic is crushed or chewed, this compound turns into allicin (with a c), the main active ingredient in garlic (7).
Allicin contains sulfur, which gives garlic its distinctive smell and taste (8).
However, allicin is unstable, so it quickly converts to other sulphur-containing compounds thought to give garlic its medicinal properties (5).
These compounds have been shown to boost the disease-fighting response of some types of white blood cells in the body when they encounter viruses, such as the viruses that cause the common cold or flu (5, 9).
