Garlic is a strong and pungent-smelling and tasting herb which is a large part of our daily diet. It is used to add flavour in Indian cuisine. This common cooking ingredient has been around for a very long time and is known to have medicinal properties. It is said to have health benefits and was used to treat health problems in olden days. Garlic was a huge part of traditional medicine and has a high nutritional value. It can treat health conditions like a common cold, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other such problems. 

Garlic is a part of our daily diet this is why it is very important to understand the side effects of garlic along with it's health benefits. Everything is good only as long as it is consumed in moderation and that rule also applies to garlic. Having too much garlic can be harmful to our body and can take a toll on our health. This is why it is very important to use this herb with care in order to ensure that it does no damage. 

Here are some side effects of garlic that we should all know about. 

1. Garlic contains certain enzymes which can irritate the skin and cause rashes and itchiness. This is why it is important to keep your skin safe while dealing with garlic and avoid eating too much of it. 

2. Consuming too much garlic can be the source of foul odour. Garlic can make your mouth smell bad and lead to bad breath which is why it's important to use a mouth freshener after consuming garlic. 

3. Garlic contains certain compounds which can take a toll on our digestive system and can cause gas, bloating as well as diarrhoea if consumed on an empty stomach or in high quantity. Garlic can also cause heartburn, nausea, vomiting as well as gastric problems. 

4. Research suggests that consuming too much garlic can trigger a headache and sometimes even migraine if consumed in the raw form. It does not directly cause a headache but instead triggers the process that can lead to a headache. 

5. Yeast infection is a common problem faced by most women but consuming too much garlic can aggravate a vaginal yeast infection and lead to more trouble.

Too much of anything is bad
From my experience I am sure too much garlic upsets digestion

My dear come to the point please, how much garlic should we consume every day.Now we know we should not eat raw garlic and never on a empty stomach.All said and done it definately effects our Heart in a Positive way and dont get me wrong, but it does improve the flow of blood to our Penise and gives a better and hard erection than before.Have 2 or 3 pieces of garlic every morning but do make it hot for 2 min on the Indian tava.Its no longer pungent and easy to consume.Try it for 7 days, no side effects .... confirmed.

So far it is being suggest-ed that the using garlic helps in heart problems ie., preventing cholesterol and very much useful for health. But the above@ said side effects cause some sort of panic in public who uses garlic as an main ingradie in their routine food.

Senseless, useless, unscientific.please remove !
