Why should you use garlic and lemon tea? This is what you are going to find out in this post.
There are so many people who keep asking me about using garlic and lemon tea on a daily basis, they don’t know why they should use it, and they just think that it’s good for cholesterol!
Well, in this post, I’m going to give you the benefits of consuming this amazing beverage, and most importantly, how to make it in the comfort of your home.
- The first reason why you should use garlic and lemon tea is for lowering cholesterol.
Garlic alone will not help you lower your cholesterol!
It’s true, it will help you prevent cardiovascular problems, but overall, it won’t reduce your cholesterol a lot, in other words, its positive effects are insignificant!
However, when you combine both lemon and garlic, the results are just amazing, and you are going to get fantastic cholesterol reduction.
It’s because lemon contains over two hundred compounds responsible for increasing your immune system and for also reducing your cholesterol levels.
However, don’t expect a huge drop, you will see an improvement, but it won’t be much!
Indeed, if you really would like to decrease your cholesterol levels, then, you need to look after your diet.
I have talked about this in many of my previous posts:
You need to cut down on saturated and trans fats as much as possible, and most importantly, you need to lower your protein intake to the maximum, in other words, you need to lower foods that are rich in protein from your diet, like meat, fish, pork, chicken, eggs, and even dairy!
I know that this is going to sound drastic, and it is, but it’s very important, especially if you have very high levels of cholesterol, it’s one of the best ways to reduce this terrible risk factor and to maintain your body in good health.
You should also increase your whole grain consumption, because they contain soluble and insoluble fibers, they play a very important role at reducing both your cholesterol and high blood pressure to healthy levels very quickly.
- The second reason why you should start drinking garlic and lemon tea is because it will lower blood pressure.
I’ve mentioned some few lines ago that garlic was good for preventing cardiovascular problems, well, it’s because it will lower your high blood pressure tremendously.
You should always have this in mind:
Garlic is fantastic for your heart, and it’s true, it smells horrible, but it’s going to load your body with amazing antioxidants and anti-inflammatory molecules that are going to play a very important role at protecting your cardiovascular system, especially your heart and brain, because garlic has been clinically studied to decrease cholesterol clogging effects when it comes to your vital arteries.
Now, here is how to prepare the best garlic lemon tea:
Every day, crush one garlic clove, then, mince it a little, then, using a stainless steel tea infuser, put in a cup of warm water, and add to it a small slice of lemon with the juice of one small lemon.
Wait fifteen minutes for minced garlic to release their healing molecules, and then “enjoy”!
And yes, you can add honey, maple syrup, or even agave nectar to reduce the garlicky smell, it’s very important if you have a weak stomach.
But always remember this: to get garlic and lemon tea’s amazing benefits, you need to consume healthy foods that are rich in fiber and low in fat, it’s very important.
