Garlic has been used for many protective purposes since ancient times. Though some of the attributes associated with this flavorful clove have been debunked, modern science has also discovered many legitimate benefits to a regular diet of garlic. Indeed, though you may not need it to ward off vampires anytime soon, garlic can be quite effective at preventing the common cold and other illnesses.
Studies have demonstrated that people who regularly consume garlic in some form are 63% less likely to catch a cold. Further, when such people suffer from a cold, the length of time it takes for symptoms to disappear is cut by about 70%. This is because garlic acts as a natural antibiotic and, while viruses will often develop a resistance to normal antibiotics and evolve into superviruses, none have demonstrated the ability to become resistant to garlic.
