    Does garlic powder work just as well?

  • Branden Carroll

    Garlic Press, I eat it RAAWW!!!

  • Dinar AndFriends

    Unfortunately it's very toxic for cats.

  • CarrieToo

    I throw a clove into my morning smoothie.

  • Carmela Christopher

    I eat 1-2 raw cloves a day in my dressings for my daily salad. Yummy however… don't forget to shower! : ) I almost never I mean never ever get sick (no exaggeration)! If I do it's sooo mild and last a day I'm not sure it was even a virus to begin with! So I'm always nursing everyone else in the house. : 0

    My dog had an aggressive looking growth on her eyelid the size of a pea, vets said they would have to remove half her eyelid, i applied some crushed garlic diluted with some water every day for a week and the growth shrunk to the size of a pinhead

    What about mincing your own garlic and then freezing?

  • MIchael C

    Nice new intro!
    We grow 30,000 bulbs in BC.
    and more next year. Make sure your garlic is local!!! or a least grown in your country.

  • Julia H

    Every time I cook, I hear your "cut garlic 10 minutes before you cook it" from a past video. Bad breath from garlic? No such thing! There are worse things to smell like. 🤣

  • Lawrence lawrence

    In being over 2 years of plant based eating I find that the raw garlic smell does not linger in my mouth like before. Also to minimize the garlic odour, eat some popcorn or ground flax seed, their abrasive dryness will scrap off the garlic juices from the mouth.

  • Farskie

    I would love to have some quick ways to eat raw garlic that is enjoyable

  • Char Tha Vegan

    mmmmmmm.. garlic… mmmmmm ♥_♥

  • Cayenne Travels

    I've used garlic topically on skin many times, its always worked flawlessly. I was surprised to hear about dangers at the end.

  • Pascal Wolf

    what about adding garlic power to finished cooked food ? As good as raw ?

  • vusal huseynli

    Dr Greger, you are my hero. I wish your videos were available in all languages so I can direct my family overseas to your channel.

  • Mitesh Patel

    I have first hand experience of first degree burns after topical application of garlic on skin. Thankfully, after the burn healed, it left no scars after 6 months. Subsequently I read upon the subject and it seems garlic can burn skin in just 5 minutes. Such powerful stuff. My diet is heavy in garlic and I think garlic resolved my long standing problem of hay fever also called rhinitis.

  • Clifton Painter

    So the bottom line is that we still don't know definitively if natural garlic is a super food or not yet and won't until several more randomized double-blinded studies are done. Figures. I'll stay tuned and fully infused with garlic if for no other reason than the fact thatI love it. Blessings

  • Mira Habib

    It is good to add to beans or salad or eggplant .

  • mkaberli

    No offense, but your image distracts from the message, which is far more important than seeing you gesture with your hand and arms for five or ten minutes. What gives? Are you a narcissist?

  • TheRainNinja

    Does garlic powder or granules work as well or clove only?

  • manumaster1990


  • Jeff Jordan Music

    So no need to worry about toxicity? Specifically neurological?

  • truefuschniken

    Thanks for this!!! 😄

  • Practical Pisces

    I'm gonna need a video focusing on black garlic. That stuff is heavenly. 😎

  • Tes Tej

    Im surprised he didnt mention sticking garlic up your hoo-ha for yeast infections…
    BTW: DON'T

  • White Kita

    I L O V E Garlic!!…..have lots of that stuff all the time!….thank you for the great awesome news dear sweet Dr Greger!

  • Maggi Valentine

    Rub a clove of garlic on warm toast. Easiest way to eat it daily, makes a quick and tasty snack. The toast grates it for you!

  • KA 237

    This is interesting. I remember reading once about a guy who ate 10 cloves of garlic a day and got some sort of testicular poisoning. It''s purely anecdotal. There might be a paper about it tough.

  • Nate

    At my work we have raw garlic, i eat one a day last week everyone had some kind of sickness but me i was clear from any sickness. It was great

  • Enrico Colombo

    You're a hero, Dr. Greger. A real one.

  • Andrew Laurent

    This is why we left the garlic out of our convenient cooking aid, Broth Bomb. We recommend adding prechopped garlic last with any oil they want to use in the bean and veggie stews. It's not totally raw, but enjoyable and more effective hopefully. We are trying to blend convenience, fun, and nutrition/food science with out patented products.

  • Paulie Antiques

    Keep doing your amazing work! Thank you!!!

  • summer Solstice

    Thank you Dr. Michael Greger for your wise words. Just one person's opinion here … every so often I'll make a sandwich and mince raw garlic onto the bread with other ingredients … Have noticed over the years that people are dropping like flies with flu, colds, upper respiratory problems, etc. I just keep on ticking … Haven't had a cold in ages. (I understand that the body is a complicated mechanism and many environmental and biological factors to be added to the mix but your words are helping me to chart a true course and stay healthy)

  • Mike Rafferty

    Maybe garlic should be part of a Daily 13?

  • Rawl R


  • Mitch

    Blend raw garlic into home made hummus as it really reduces the flavour strength of the garlic

  • Fools Gold Found

    I’m not eating raw garlic. I’m not insane.

  • Filippo Coluccia

    Allow crushed or chopped garlic to stand for about 10 minutes before cooking.  This allows time for the enzyme alliinase to create allicin, the source of bioactive compound.

  • John Smith

    Raw garlic is easy to eat by eating it with raisins or other sugars.

  • Stellabully

    Just so I’m understanding this, no heat to raw garlic as it will destroy all of the health benefits? So just crush it and swallow raw? Is this the best approach?

  • at me

    I love you Dr Greger, thank you for all that you do 💕 Now it's time to go on Joe Rogan's podcast!

  • Peter Rabitt

    All I know is, after I eat garlic…🌅🍆😉

  • DJ Lev

    I make fresh salsa with all raw veggies, including garlic. Best way for me to get it down. Plus I can put salsa on a lot of foods!!

  • Pauloishereblog

    I like the idea that we shouldn't die from the current leading causes like heart diseases, etc if we adopt and commit to a full plant based diet. Nevertheless, it begs the question, if not from this then what? Excluding accidents and some obscure personal genetic condition, then what could potentially end up killing us?

  • Geulez loves Dragons

    I'm all for garlic, but this makes me wonder. If it has such a negative result on your outer skin, then when ingesting it, how does it give one all the advantages? Is this due to it being broken down by the chemicals in the stomach?

  • frank mancuso

    I dont know how to read a forest plot.

  • Tehstool

    Looks like I'm going to be sneaking in half a clove of raw garlic when I'm preparing them for cooking.

  • Adam GB

    BS about colds.

  • Plantbased Outdoors

    I think I'm allergic to raw garlic. It gives me a headache if eaten raw. But not cooked or garlic powder. But cooking destroys most of the good stuff. What gives? Any suggestions?

  • Maا Has

    Why you do not just speak simply with normal tone and simpler presentation? you are just seemed artificial in your voice and scatter the focus of anyone watching your video.

  • SpiritualVegan

    Me over here with a cold for the first time in a long time and I eat garlic everyday

  • suicune2001

    I never thought to rub garlic on my face or skin but good to know. lol

  • Alejandro Martinez

    Sorry for the inconvenience, Dr. Greger, but the Spanish subtitles of the latest videos have been out of sync.
    I hope they can be fixed.
    Thank you for such valuable information.

    Drinking my garlic, apple cider vinegar and ginger drink as I watch this!

  • Brooklyn Hudson

    I crush 2 fat cloves on a piece of toast (let it oxidize for five minutes) with a little coconut oil, turmeric, and black pepper, each night, just before bed. Burns going down, but I've noticed many benefits since beginning this regime.

  • Bill Ding the constructor

    if only it didnt make my mouth and body reek for 24 hours after eating it. i love it but its not worth the social stigma.

  • Bronwyn Doyle

    I love garlic, but had to stop eating it because all of a sudden became nauseated by it—I felt poisoned. We guessed it may be the sprays put on them by the Chinese farmers. So we started growing our own. Shazam! I can eat garlic again! And it also kept the vampire population down in our garden! Win win!

  • Maple Flavor

    what about garlic powder? i think most people most use the powder

  • Witanix ENOS

    what about garlic in juice ?

  • maremacd

    I prefer the voiceovers.

  • Justin Williams

    I'm actually enjoying this new style of video. You're very expressive and it's great!

  • Tonasky -

    what about garlic powder?

  • Joseph1NJ

    So unless you eat it raw, you're not getting any health benefits. How disappointing.

  • Risebell

    Garlic is so useful. I have killed like 6 vampires with it, and that's without even considering what it does to a good stir fry.

  • Kat Rich

    I usually use minced garlic in a jar. I use a lot of it, I love the taste and love garlic. After this video I bought some fresh garlic cloves, chopped them up into little pieces and put them in my salad tonight. Whew! That's strong stuff!!
    I can see how garlic can be used as an antiseptic for inside the body! Now I've got a Vikings share of garlic breath.

  • Kat Rich

    Why do I crave sweets after eating a meal with raw onions and/or garlic?

  • The Honey Boost

    I love fresh cloves of garlic in my food! Very informative 🙂

  • Emily Dawn

    Just put about 8 cloves of garlic (different sizes) & juice of 3 whole lemons in my full Ninja food processor of hummus. Our family of 4 (2 littles) ate about 1/2 of it with dinner 😋 all healthier than everybody we know thanks to a WFPB diet thanks largely to this guy! ☝👏

  • Joe M

    I mash avacado, then add turmeric, salt, pepper, cumin, maybe some cayenne pepper and finally add a clove or two of chopped garlic. Yum!

  • Daniel Hernandez

    I have been listening to your 2 audiobooks, how not to die and how not to diet, i downloaded them via

    I have been following you for 4 years now.

    I JUST BOUGHT your book: how not to die the cookbook. It will probably be my new favorite book. It think it is a must have in every single home.

    Thanks for everything! Continue with your amazing work/passion!

    PD: I wish you could also make a book in which you explain how to prepare food for 1 week for busy people who like to use one day a week to do everything for the whole week, or maybe a video on this.

    I wonder how garlic preserved in honey would do? Going off what is said here it's probably best to stick with raw.

  • Nicholas Steel

    I don’t know about that! If I eat garlic I get a sore throat.,..nah! Nonsense, garlic is a poison.

    I did put garlic on my rash once, and it did cure the rash… but the blister was… you can't imagine.

  • Xevior Knight

    What about garlic power? How much would I have to take for it to be the same as whole cloves? And what are the amounts of nutrients in garlic power compared to whole crushed cloves? Thanks in advance, have a good day.

  • A G

    Even though people complain about my smell, I eat raw garlic every day. I love the way it tastes, too.
