You likely know the benefits of garlic in your diet, but garlic tea is another important natural remedy that can provide a number of health benefits. However, before adding any powerful herbal tea to your health regimen, it is important to understand how to properly prepare it, as well as what potential benefits it holds.

What is garlic tea?

Garlic tea is a warm brew made with garlic cloves, and while that may not sound like the most palatable beverage, it can be very beneficial to your health. Garlic is scientifically known as allium sativum and contains high levels of vitamins a, b and c, as well as sulfuric compounds, allicin, variousantioxidants and other active ingredients. When you eat garlic cloves or include them in your diet, you benefit from these components, but the concentration is often quite low.

For thousands of years, garlic tea has been a trusted natural remedy, dating all the way back to the ancient greeks. If you can get over the initially unpleasant flavor, you will be surprised by the additional energy and overall wellness that a daily cup of garlic tea can give.

There are some potential side effects that should be considered, such as heartburn, nausea, vomiting, general gastric distress, and a higher risk for bleeding disorders. These side effects are typically only experienced if you consume a large amount of garlic tea, or due to allergies. You should be able to avoid side effects if you practice moderation when drinking this specialty tea.

3. Improves respiratory system

If you are suffering from a cough, cold, sore throat or sinus congestion, a single cup of this tea can help clear out congestion and reduce inflammation in your respiratory tracts. It also helps in speeding up healing and eliminating the underlying infection.

4. Weight loss

Garlic tea is able to stimulate the metabolism, which can increase passive fat burning and aid in weight loss efforts, while also partially suppressing the appetite!

5. Provides energy boost

Drinking a cup of garlic tea every morningmay not pack a caffeine boost, but it can increase overall energy levels at the start of the day.

Apple Benefits and Nutrition Effects

Apple

Apples have a rounded shape with a depression at the top where the stem is attached. Some apples are almost perfectly round, while others are more rounded at the top and narrower at the bottom. In addition, some have knobby lobes at the calyx end (bottom) of the fruit. Apple fruits are firm and the skin is shiny and smooth. The color of the skin can be red, green, yellow, or a combination of those colors. The flesh is white or ivory.

Health Benefits of Apple

Bone Protection
French researchers found that a flavanoid called phloridzin that is found only in apples may protect post-menopausal women from osteoporosis and may also increase bone density. Boron, another ingredient in apples, also strengthens bones.

Asthma Help
One recent study shows that children with asthma who drank apple juice on a daily basis suffered from less wheezing than children who drank apple juice only once per month. Another study showed that children born to women who eat a lot of apples during pregnancy have lower rates of asthma than children whose mothers ate few apples.

Alzheimer's Prevention
A study on mice at Cornell University found that the quercetin in apples may protect brain cells from the kind of free radical damage that may lead to Alzheimer's disease.

Lower Cholesterol
The pectin in apples lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol. People who eat two apples per day may lower their cholesterol by as much as 16 percent.

Lung Cancer Prevention
According to a study of 10,000 people, those who ate the most apples had a 50 percent lower risk of developing lung cancer. Researchers believe this is due to the high levels of the flavonoids quercetin and naringin in apples.

Breast Cancer Prevention
A Cornell University study found that rats who ate one apple per day reduced their risk of breast cancer by 17 percent. Rats fed three apples per day reduced their risk by 39 percent and those fed six apples per day reduced their risk by 44 percent.

Colon Cancer Prevention
One study found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 43 percent lower risk of colon cancer. Other research shows that the pectin in apples reduces the risk of colon cancer and helps maintain a healthy digestive tract.

Liver Cancer Prevention
Research found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 57 percent lower risk of liver cancer.

Diabetes Management
The pectin in apples supplies galacturonic acid to the body which lowers the body's need for insulin and may help in the management of diabetes.

Weight Loss
A Brazilian study found that women who ate three apples or pears per day lost more weight while dieting than women who did not eat fruit while dieting.

It is for this reason, clove oil is used extensively in dentistry as an anodyne (A pain reliever).

In painful teeth conditions like an abscessed tooth, infections, gum disease or even cavities, toothache can range from mild to sharp shooting and almost unbearable pain.
