Garlic - The Pungent Superfood

OUR FAMILY HAS BEEN GROWING GARLIC, A FANTASTIC AND PUNGENT SUPERFOOD, FOR ~25 YEARS...

OUR BIGGEST CROP EVER WAS 50,000 GARLIC PLANTS. IT WAS ALL HARVESTED BY HAND AND EACH BULB WAS HANDLED 9 TIMES BEFORE IT FINALLY ARRIVED AT THE SPECIALTY GROCERS!! TALK ABOUT HARD WORK!! (THANKFULLY, WE'VE HAD A GARLIC HARVESTER NOW FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS!!) OUR GARLIC MORE THAN HOLDS ITS OWN AND PEOPLE WAIT FOR IT EVERY YEAR!!
RAW GARLIC IS A PUNGENT SUPERFOOD THAT IS NATURALLY ANTI-BACTERIAL, ANTI-MICROBIAL, ANTI-PARASITIC AND ANTI-FUNGAL.
ALLICIN is a POWERFUL ANTIBACTERIAL found in GARLIC AND HAS DIRECT ANTIVIRAL EFFECTS ~ BUT it is ONLY PRESENT shortly after garlic is crushed or chopped and before it is heated. The more finely crushed/chopped the clove, the more ALLICIN IS ACTIVATED = THE MORE EFFECTIVE IT IS (JUST DO NOT PUT IT IN THE BLENDER AS IT BECOMES MUCH TOO ACTIVATED/POTENT!!)
GARLIC ALSO HAS CANCER-FIGHTING PROPERTIES ~ EACH CLOVE IS PACKED WITH A VARIETY OF PHYTOCHEMICALS ~ INCLUDING FLAVONOIDS. THESE ARE VERY POTENT ANTIOXIDANTS WITH ANTI-CANCER PROPERTIES... SO VITAL FOR OVERALL HEALTH 💋💋
