Many gardeners who grow vegetables on their plots are aware of the benefits of garlic arrows. These fresh, green shoots are high in vitamins and are good for food. With an unusual pungent taste, they do not have the pungency inherent in garlic. Dishes with the addition of arrows are aromatic and slightly tangy. Garlic arrows are useful for many diseases, but they also have contraindications.
Garlic arrows are the aerial part of garlic, which are bright green buds that peep out of the leaves of the garlic and turn into inflorescences over time. Until the arrows turn into inflorescences, they are edible and represent a very useful and nutritious product. They contain the same vitamins and minerals as the heads of garlic, but they have a less pungent taste and are less odorous.
The shoots include vitamins A, D, E, C, PP, B1, B2, as well as sulfur, iodine, chlorine, potassium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus, organic acids, phytoncides, antioxidants, essential oils and other bioactive substances.
The main healing effect of the use of garlic arrows is explained by the natural phytoncides contained in its composition. These substances, contained in the essential oil of plants, are very important for the human immune system. They have a beneficial effect on the entire body, killing harmful microorganisms and disinfecting. The benefits of green garlic arrows are as follows:
Arrows of garlic for medicinal purposes are consumed both fresh, and infusions and decoctions are prepared from them. You can make a cold infusion. Due to the fact that the plant is not exposed to high temperatures, all the vitamin and mineral composition that is beneficial to human health remains in it. For cooking, you need 10 pieces of garlic arrows and 250 ml of cold water. The shoots are crushed, poured with a small amount of liquid and ground, then the rest of the water is added. The dishes are covered and allowed to stand in a dark place for about a day. Then filter. Take 1 tablespoon three times a day after meals.
To prepare a decoction of arrows, you need to boil 250 ml of water and then add one tablespoon of crushed raw materials to it. Cook over low heat for about five minutes, then remove from the stove, wrap and leave for 45 minutes, drain.
