As per Healthline, a consistent consumption of raw garlic can have both preventive and exacerbating effects on a range of illnesses. However, this article primarily explores the potential advantages of chewing raw garlic for various medical conditions.

Raw garlic consumption may contribute to better cardiovascular health due to its heart-friendly properties, such as reducing blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

For those struggling with blood sugar management, chewing raw garlic can be beneficial. This is because various drugs, foods, and beverages can impact fasting blood sugar levels and aid in overall blood sugar regulation, crucial for managing type 2 diabetes.

Additionally, garlic can bolster the body’s immune system, enhancing resistance to illnesses and reducing inflammation. Embracing the benefits of chewing raw garlic can be a wise choice for those committed to health management, as the antioxidants it contains further support the immune system.

Some individuals today also use garlic as a preventive measure against various cancers, including lung, prostate, breast, stomach, rectal, and colon cancers.
