Garlic contains allicin which in double blind studies has been shown to cut your probability of coming down with a cold or flu by 50%. But allicin must be taken in it’s natural form as fresh garlic. Garlic has been shown to lower blood pressure and manage blood pressure for long periods of time.

Cilantro is a powerful antibacterial agent that helps to kill Salmonella and other bacterial infections. In fact cilantro and cilantro oil helps to keep food from rapidly spoiling. Cilantro contains many great oils that help with microbes and fungi such as cineole, borneol, terpineol, and many more powerful oils.
A compound found in cilantro called “dodecenal” was found to be more powerful than the antibiotic gentamicin in killing Salmonella in laboratory studies. And a study in Brazil found that cilantro oil might be a good agent for cleansing away fungi from the body. And the University of California at Berkley said “We were surprised that dodecenal was such a potent antibiotic.”

And antioxidants also help to prevent DNA damage and promote DNA repair thus slowing the aging process.
