Since ancient times, a man has put a garlic cloak under his pillow when sleeping at night because it is a solution to many health problems and is recommended by modern medicine because it contains high levels of vitamin B in addition to potassium, sodium and magnesium.
Garlic contains an important and unique allicin that acts as a common antimicrobial agent against viruses, bacteria and fungi.
Modern medicine, for its part, is recommended to put a garlic clove under the pillow before going to bed because Alicin evaporates, that is, fights germs and infection at night.
In addition, this substance helps to remove mucus from the sinuses, which is useful for people with a cold because it helps to open the airways in the nose.
Alisin has another property: it blocks the formation of sodium substitutes, which are carcinogens and cause changes in cells, leading to the development of a tumor, according to a report published today by Russia.
One of the properties of allicin, which evaporates overnight, is to prevent the blockage of posterior cholesterol vessels from clogging.
The most important thing in garlic is that it has a calming effect on the nervous system and helps you sleep deeply because potassium and magnesium stimulate the secretion of the hormone melatonin (a sleep hormone), which helps you fall asleep quickly.
Finally, experts recommend the use of fresh garlic that has not undergone heat treatment.
