The German Health Center said that garlic is a superfood, as it protects against cancer and heart disease and works to strengthen immunity and nerves.

The center explained that garlic contains allicin, which is a sulfur compound that not only gives garlic its pungent taste and smell, but also has an antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal effect.

The compound "Allicin" is also an effective weapon for fighting cancer, as it destroys cancer cells on the one hand, and prevents the formation of new cancer cells on the other hand.

The sulfur compounds "allicin" and "ajoene" work in combination with secondary plant substances such as "flavonoids" and "saponins" to expand blood vessels and improve blood flow, thus protecting against cardiovascular diseases.

Garlic is also rich in vitamin B6, which works to strengthen the immune system and stimulate the nervous system.
