Garlic is also high in anti-inflammatory compounds, which can reduce swelling in the brain and throughout the body.

BLOOD SUGAR
Garlic regulates blood sugar, meaning your little one may get less sugar spikes and crashes.

NUTRIENT DENSE
Garlic contains a ton of vital nutrients – flavonoids, oligosaccharides, amino acids, allicin and high levels of sulfur (just to name a few).

FUN FACT:
Garlic is central to central Asia, but grows wild in Italy and southern France, and has been used by humans for at least 7,000 years.
