A Reminder…

Garlic is a great source of antioxidants, including vitamin C, selenium, quercetin (a type of phytochemical found in plants, which has anti-inflammatory capabilities). Garlic also has small amounts of manganese, a vital element of some antioxidant enzymes.

The human body needs antioxidants to assist in preventing or slowing cell damage caused by unstable molecules called “free radicals.” The fact is, too many free radicals can lead to oxidation stress, a condition associated with chronic illnesses, including heart disease.
