We all know how great garlic is to our bodies. Medicinally, garlic helps us fight off bacteria and fungi in the bodies, and it is great for your heart. Garlic also ranks as a sodium free herb, but has a great taste! It also ranks as the best source of the mineral selenium which is one of the nutrients cancer researchers have cited for its impressive antioxidant properties!
