Growing garlic in reality does not require any special qualities, as it is rather easy: it is enough to have a garden or a vegetable garden and constantly water the plant. The best times to sow garlic are the end of winter / beginning of spring - ie the months of February and March - or the end of autumn / beginning of winter, ie November and the first half of December . The garlic should be sown in parallel rows, at a distance of about fifty centimeters from each other, paying attention to the fact that even the individual seedlings are at least fifteen centimeters apart from each other, a space that the plant will need to branch out. In the cultivation of garlic the so-called "trivalent" fertilizers are used, that is slow-release fertilizers, which are endowed with large quantities of potassium necessary for the plant. The ideal fertilization period is undoubtedly spring, while the depth of the bulbs must not exceed five or seven centimeters below the ground.The numerous beneficial properties of garlic
As anticipated, garlic is very rich in beneficial and medicinal properties which all make up its capacity to inhibit platelet aggregation, which sometimes, in particular pathologies and organisms, have the tendency to aggregate forming blood clots . And precisely these clusters of platelets, these clots, are responsible for the phenomena of thrombosis that determine very serious consequences for the organism, even causing death. This action is carried out by garlic thanks to the presence inside it of a substance such as allicin, the main cause of the inhibition of this phenomenon.
Also very well known is the beneficial effect of garlic on cholesterol: the constant use of garlic, in fact, determines a significant lowering of cholesterol levels in the blood. The action of garlic is particularly evident when the level of cholesterol in the blood reaches over 250 milligrams per deciliter, ie it goes well beyond the allowed threshold in a healthy organism. To perform this particular action is above all the dry garlic extract. Some studies have shown that the benefits of dry titrated garlic extract are particularly evident in the elderly, who, taking three hundred milligrams of extract a day, have seen the elasticity of the aorta improve and reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. Those who are genetically predisposed to develop these diseases, ie the obese, heart patients, diabetics and those with high blood pressure and cholesterol levels should therefore consume a lot of garlic.
The action of garlic against hypertension.
Blood pressure is one of the values that should be kept under control, especially after a certain age, because how much they are excessive - in this case we speak of "hypertension" - there can also be very serious consequences for the organism, which is more exposed to the risk of being affected by heart attacks and strokes. In cases of hypertension, garlic has proved to be a real panacea: it actually dilates blood vessels, especially the smaller ones, favoring a consistent improvement in circulation. All this has been scientifically documented by studies that have shown a decrease in both systolic and diastolic pressure.
Garlic is its anti-infective action
Lastly, garlic has a remarkable, recognized, antibacterial and anti-infective ability that makes explicit its beneficial effects especially on the respiratory tract, which are purified by germs and bacteria which are also prevented from reproducing. In addition to this internal use, from the point of view of external use garlic is widely used to counteract fungi that cause skin infections and to fight warts, a problem that is especially aesthetic and afflicts many people. Freshly crushed garlic should be applied to the wart, leaving it in place for several minutes, the time required for it to act.
