Does garlic help you sleep better?

  1. Good question! In this section, Health Net will look for the answer to frequently asked questions. This time: Does garlic help you sleep better?

  1. You sleep better with a clove of garlic under your pillow. Garlic contains sulfur-containing substances that, in combination with the aroma, have a calming effect. Don't worry that in the morning your whole room will smell like garlic; you will only notice the smell when lying on your pillow. An additional advantage is that it keeps mosquitoes at bay.

Garlic in the pan

  1. In addition to being a means to improve sleep quality, garlic is a natural antibiotic that helps keep the digestive tract clean. It contains antioxidants, which have an anti-inflammatory and repairing effect. Garlic also contains a wide variety of minerals, such as potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc, as well as a number of B vitamins. But to experience the effects, you have to eat a lot of garlic. One clove only weighs six grams.

Too much garlic is not good

  1. It is not recommended to eat more than three cloves of garlic a day. For example, a consequence of an excess of garlic can be dizziness due to anemia, or that red blood cells are affected. Your stomach and intestinal mucosa can be damaged, causing your intestinal wall to absorb nutrients less well. You will also get a heavier sweat and smell from the mouth. The amount does not matter for under your pillow. Feel free to put a few cloves there, skin and all.
