Are you taking pills for high blood pressure? You may want to start switching to adding more garlic into your diet. This natural blood thinner is great at preventing other cardiovascular diseases, as well as serving as an antibacterial and antifungal. You can choose to eat a clove of garlic raw or just add a few spoons of minced garlic to your recipes to help add flavor to whatever you’re making. Of course, there is the smell to contend with. But luckily, eating garlic also makes you less attractive to mosquitoes. You win some, you lose some!
