Components Of Garlic in Woodbury MN

Allin is the main beneficial ingredient in garlic; it is converted into Allicin when you chew it raw. It is a compound made of oils that will decompose almost immediately once taken, and quickly begins to fight and destroy bacteria and other pathogens once digested.

Consider eating raw garlic while still fresh, since it has higher levels of Allicin than preserved or stored versions. You can store garlic at room temperature. When you are ready to use it crush it up and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. This will give it time to release the maximum amount of enzymes that assist in boosting your health.

How To Select And Store

For the best flavor and maximum health benefits, buy fresh garlic. Do not buy garlic that is soft, shows evidence of decay or is beginning to sprout. Garlic in flake, powder or paste form is convenient, but it is not as good as fresh garlic. It is best stored at room temperature in an uncovered container in a cool, dark place away from exposure to heat and sunlight which will help prevent sprouting. Depending on its age and variety, a whole garlic bulb will keep fresh from 2 weeks to 2 months.


Once you break the head of garlic, it greatly reduces its shelf life to just a few days.

If you love eating raw garlic but hate the lingering aftertaste, try chewing parsley as it works very well as a breath freshener.
