How to Cure a Cold With Garlic

Garlic and Chest Congestion

The active constituents within garlic may improve immune system function and help relieve the symptoms of the common cold, which include chest congestion. A review published in "Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition" in 2009 examined evidence of garlic's benefits and concluded that it boosts the immune system, potentially helping your body fight a cold and a laboratory study published in "The Ethiopian Medical Journal" in 2006 found that crushed garlic effectively slows growth of pathogens in culture. A comprehensive review published in "The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews" in 2009 examined trials of garlic for the common cold. It reported that subjects in one trial reported improved symptoms, but reported that larger, well-controlled studies are needed to determine whether garlic is an effective cold treatment.
