Garlic has been used in medicine since ancient times. The bulbs contain antibacterial substances that may work even more effectively than manufactured medicines, without any side effects, according to some studies.

People with sore throats can brew garlic tea with a few cloves of garlic, a cup of boiling water, the juice of half of a lemon, and a teaspoon of honey.
