Should I eat garlic regularly?

Health experts including Dr. Oz agree that fresh garlic has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. One study found that people who began to eat garlic regularly were able to reduce their sick days significantly.

People who eat garlic regularly have also been known to show reductions in elevated blood pressure levels.
