There are differing opinions on the subject of eating garlic on an empty stomach. You may have heard people writing it off as a grandmother’s home recipe that has very little effect but there are many who swear by its benefits.

Garlic on empty stomach is very effective for preventing and curing different diseases.

Natural antibiotic
Studies have shown that garlic if eaten on an empty stomach acts as a powerful antibiotic. It is more effective when you eat it before breakfast because bacteria is exposed and cannot defend itself from succumbing to its power.

Controlling hypertension
Many people who suffer from hypertension have found that garlic helps relieve some symptoms.

Good for the gut
It aids in proper functioning of the liver and bladder and is effective for stomach problems like diarrhea. It stimulates digestion and appetite. It also helps control stress, which prevents stomach acid that is usually produced when you get nervous.

Detoxifies the body
Garlic is considered to be one of the most powerful foods to help detoxify the body in alternative medicine. Experts in this branch of medicine insist that garlic is so powerful that it can get rid of parasites and worms, and prevent diseases like typhus, diabetes, depression, and some types of cancer.

Respiration
Garlic is believed to work wonders in preventing and curing tuberculosis, pneumonia, catarrhs, bronchitis, chronic bronchial catarrhs, lung congestion, asthma, and whooping cough.

Helpful in tuberculosis
Diagnosed with TB? Here’s how you should consume garlic. Eat an entire bulb of garlic a day. Divide it in various portions that can be consumed in any way. It is better for garlic to be raw or lightly browned in the oven.

Warning: People allergic to garlic should take two very important things into account: you shouldn’t eat it raw, and if you get an outbreak on your skin, an increase in temperature, or a headache, you should immediately stop consuming it.

If the strong smell of garlic becomes unbearable it is recommended that one can consume it in the pill form.
