  • Regular consumption of raw garlic can help reduce the risk of colon and stomach cancer.2
  • A dose of garlic powder can be as effective as some cholesterol reducing drugs in lowering total

    cholesterol levels and increases levels of HDL or ‘good cholesterol’.3

Honey

Honey aids digestion

  • Honey contains a number of minerals, nutrients, and enzymes which can help in the breakdown of food.
  • Raw honey also has probiotic properties which promote the growth of good bacteria in the stomach. This also aids digestion.4
  • Honey has been shown to inhibit the growth of bladder cancer cells and cancerous tumors in an experiment involving human bladder cancer cells.5
  • Honey contains a substance called eugenol which has been shown to kill and inhibit the growth of human colon cancer cells.6

Apple Cider Vinegar

Raw apple cider vinegar has many benefits

  • Studies show that people who included a small amount of vinegar in their diet lost considerably more weight as compared to those who didn’t.7
  • Apple cider vinegar can help reduce blood sugar by improving insulin sensitivity and insulin response, especially after a starchy meal.8 9
  • Apple cider vinegar can help reduce levels of LDL and triglycerides which are widely seen as the bad fats. At the same time, the vinegar has been seen to increase levels of HDL or ‘good cholesterol’ as well.10
  • The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar can help break down food in the stomach and improve gut flora just like honey, aiding digestion.11
