While some people shun the use of garlic in everyday cooking and eating, there are some things to learn about the benefits we can reap by using garlic in the kitchen and consuming it too. And if there’s garlic, can honey be far behind? These two can give us more than we know about them.

Let us first honey because I think everyone knows that this has been used even way back thousands of years ago for its medicinal and aesthetic purposes. That is why most people have always bought this product for the kitchen and the beauty regimen even though it costs higher than other kinds of food. There is something about honey that we have to know more than the information that we have about it. This information was culled from a book authored by a doctor, Dr. R. Palma, and the book is “ The Secrets of Health, Youth and Longevity.” 

Honey has seven digestive enzymes. ) I suggest that you research further on the technical words here for a better understanding of the terms). Sorry for not giving full details and explanation of the terms. I leave it all to you. You might be able to use your research skill on this.

  • Invertase ( converts sucrose to dextrose and levulose)
  • Diastase ( converts sucrose to maltose)
  • Catalase (decomposes hydrogen peroxide)
  • Imulase (converts insulin to levulose)
  • Aromatic bodies (terpes, aldehydes, and esters)
  • Higher substances (manitol, dulcitol
  • Maltose (rare energizers, melizitose)

Aside from these digestive enzymes (which have a role in breaking the food we eat. That is, it helps the food to disintegrate into protein, carbohydrates, and fats for proper absorption of nutrients of our body for the best of our health), honey also contains several minerals, seven of them are part of the B-complex group, vitamins A, C, D, and E.

It is claimed by people around the world such as the Chinese, Romans, Hindus, and Greeks that garlic could treat intestinal disorders, flatulence, infections of the respiratory system, skin diseases, wounds, and signs of aging.

Hippocrates, as reported, had claimed garlic as a laxative and diuretic. A Greek physician in the second century specified garlic for all lung and intestinal disorders. And during World War II, thousands of tons were bought by the British government to treat soldiers’ wounds.
