It is a good idea to wait 10 minutes before eating the garlic after chopping. The above link explains why.
I thought this would be good information for the site since allicin is the active component for the garlic.May 23, 2012 at 6:56 am #82748

Interesting post. I think it’s best to just eat it raw but if you cook it this is a good tip.May 23, 2012 at 7:03 am #82751

Garlic pills with allicin are also available if you can’t always eat garlic. If anyone uses the pills along with fresh garlic, be sure to obtain one that contains allicin. Amazon sells several different brands of garlic pills containing allicin.

Thanks for the link. Those foods also contain pectin and inulin, so they’re pretty good choices for a healthy GI tract. A few no-nos for candida sufferers though.
I was reading some interesting stuff about H. pylori. It seems that drops in stomach cancer rates thanks to H. pylori treatment have coincided with rises in rates of esophageal cancer. It’s been with us for thousands of years, and might actually provide symbiotic benefits. High-starch diets that lead to overgrowths are probably more to blame. We’re still stuck in the germs = bad paradigm, so I guess it’ll be a while before doctors stop their antibiotic prescriptions and tell us how to care for our microbiota.
