Garlic is a well-known spice in most homes. It is rich in various minerals and nutrients such as carbohydrates, vitamins, sodium, and potassium.
So then, that brings the question; why should you sleep with garlic under your pillow?
According to the Manuka feed, apart from just being a spice in the kitchen, garlic can be a strong flavour inside your bedroom. Instead of taking sleeping pills, you should try natural garlic as an alternative.
The smell of garlic at night can have a calming effect that helps you stay asleep all night.
The smell also helps to clear out the blocked nasal passages, hence improving the breathing activity in the process.
Allicins (a natural sulfur compound that protects garlic from soil parasites and fungi) is believed to block the groups of enzymes that enable microbes to invade and survive in the body.
Anyone who experiences difficulty in breathing while sleeping knows how hectic and long the nights can get.
The smell of garlic under your pillow, as you sleep, will definitely make you less sick at night.
Although the practice seems old and weird, those who have tried it out have admitted that it really works.
