Garlic has been a food and medicine for thousands of years. It is a powerful immune-booster. It has antimicrobial, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Most recent research has shown that garlic’s antibiotic qualities comes from the sulfur compound called allicin. Cooking garlic destroys the allicin rendering it negligible for healing. Thus, cooked garlic has virtually no antibiotic value. When infused in honey, raw garlic becomes far more palatable and also retains its antibiotic properties.
