It’s been shown that adequate levels of Vitamin D and zinc really do make a difference against COVID 19 and cold viruses in general.
It’s also clear that good nutrition just doesn’t get the attention it deserves when it comes to success against preventing disease, especially COVID-19.
Lemon garlic drink
Today I’m going to tell you about the lemon-garlic drink someone told me about awhile back. You can make at home quickly and easily, and is proven to be very beneficial for health. What’s great is that the lemon-garlic drink costs only a few dollars to make! Here’s what you need:
First peel 30 cloves of garlic and cut 5 organic lemons with the peel into small pieces (so the essential oil comes into the drink) and liquify in a blender. Be sure to thoroughly wash the lemons first.
Next, slowly bring the lemon-garlic slurry to a boil with a liter of water, let it boil briefly. Then allow to cool to room temperature. You can use 1.5 liters of water if you want more.
Next pour the contents into a clean jar or bottle and keep it in the refrigerator.
Drink daily a small liqueur glass about 20 ml 1 hour before or after the main meals. After 3 weeks, take a break for 1 week and then repeat the lemon garlic cure for another 3 weeks. For best results do this once a year.
Garlic is truly a superfood with outstanding health-promoting properties.
The person who gave me the recipe said the lemon garlic concoction clears up the bad stuff in your intestines, promotes digestion, even eliminates worms and excess water, cleanses blood vessels, lowers blood pressure, strengthens the heart, and is preventive against all types of colds.
The lemon-garlic drink really worked for me. The first time I tried it, my cholesterol value fell 30 points! Moreover, the scientific literature confirms the concoction works extremely well.
Garlic dissolves undesirable fats in the organism, improves metabolism, improves eyesight, helps ward off arteriosclerosis, heart attacks and strokes, and helps with ulcers and headaches. Garlic is also high in allicin, which helps stimulate circulation and blood flow to organs.
It is said that arrowed veins become more elastic and calcified veins in the brain or coronary arteries are cleansed.
Of course real good health doesn’t come from just drinking a lemon-garlic cocktail for a few weeks every year. You also have to do the other things right: stay away from sugar, junk carbs like snacks, starch and white flour, eat nutrient rich foods (eggs, vegetables, good fats, meat, fish, berries etc.) and stay active.

I’m curious to know what readers think.

It’s better, IMHO of course, if you bake the lemons and garlic first. Then blend them and a tsp of erithythol.
That garlic lemon drink sounds like the worst tasting drink ever invented. I got nauseous just reading about it. I do not like lemons, or garlic, so that drink sounds like a nightmare to me.
I do, however, take one gram of odor free garlic oil in a capsule every day — said to be equivalent 100 grams of fresh garlic — to slightly thin my blood and reduce blood pressure, in addition to two prescription medications.
I tried non-odor-free garlic oil capsules once, and hated them. Gave then to the wife — She broke open the capsules to use the garlic oil as a deer repellent on her outdoor plants. Worked really well until multiple rainstorms finally washed it off.
I also added one daily 5,000 IU capsule of Vitamin D3 to my diet in March 2020 when COVID hit, in addition to about 3000 IU in my daily multiple vitamin and calcium pill.
So, I’m on your side, being pro-garlic and pro-Vitamin D, but all the benefits of garlic listed in the article seem, well, excessive, to be kind.
Doesn’t taste anywhere near as bad as you might imagine. It does take a little will power, first thing in the morning to have before breakfast. My wife says that it doesn’t create a very strong odor – maybe because of the lemon.
“My wife says that it doesn’t create a very strong odor – maybe because of the lemon.”
Your wife obviously loves you — there has to be an odor! If there are no odor emissions, are there carbon emissions? Or any other kind of “emissions”? The good news, hopefully, is no side effects, as there are with prescription medicines, and even aspirin.
If that concoction benefits one’s health, then why not take it every day? Or every other day? Or three times a week? Why just two three week periods out of every 52 weeks? That six weeks out of 52 weeks recommendation does not make sense to me.
You have given two of your opinions without having created the drink. How would you know? Here is an opinion. Go ahead, make it, try it and then come back to the forum with your experience of having tried it Then you won’t have to tear down and criticize other peoples posts without any experience or evidence. Bottoms up!
“The first time I tried it, my cholesterol value fell 30 points”
Wow, that us very rare fir a non prescription result.
Will give it a try.
Furthermore, why would anyone want to lower it?

The LDL and Triglycerides are what you’d like to keep lower.
Neit Comrade, if you don’t mind I will rely on my well proven 70 yrs plus immune system. But thanks for your interesting info, it will be exploded!
‘exploded’ was explored when it left me?
If you are going to use organic lemons, do you know if it is the lemon, or the fruit fly lave that is empowering the tonic?
Where garlic is concerned, I agree with Dracula. But I think this drink will certainly help with social distancing. No-one will want to come near you.
Those are some beautiful garlic!
Rub the lemon-garlic ‘sauce’ on a whole chicken, some salt and pepper. Set the oven temp, it’ll be good.
When workers on the Pyramids were denied garlic for some reason, they went on strike.
They got garlic.
My youngest son when a child would be given applesauce with garlic, he wouldn’t eat applesauce if there was no garlic in it. funny.
I have a mulched bed with about five varieties from seed sources. Been growing garlic for years now.
Onions are anti-viral too.
Would be interested in knowing if you’ve experienced any health benefits.
22 years ago I became ill during the winter months, began as a flu, not too incapacitated, but you knew you were sicker than a dog. As the days passed, the illness didn’t go away, the symptoms became worse.
Low grade fever that is constant, always extremely tired, never enough sleep, when you’re awake, you suffer. Pneumonia will kill you, you have to see a doctor.
An early Sunday morning was the peak of how much misery there could possibly be. Monday morning I walked to the doctor’s office six blocks away. I had developed pneumonia and it was gradually worsening.
I had a dream I was on a passenger train and one passenger said, “Don’t pay any attention to him, he’s dead.”
The dream, nightmare, was in black and white.
I woke up from that dream.
Next stop was the doctor’s office. After that bout of misery, I stopped visiting places like bars, churches during winter months, not too keen on consistent restaurant visits. Grocery stores have odors, translates to a petri dish scenario.
Been more careful ever since then.
Stopped drinking all soft drinks, reduced sweets, pastries, to near zero, drastically reduced distilled spirits. I do indulge in some Stolichnaya now and then, a Caesar. Good for what ails you.
The ingredients in beer contain all of the nutrients to keep you alive. Enough of it will kill anything that moves, lol.
One solution, eat good food, and use plenty of garlic when you prepare food, minced garlic in a lettuce salad, oil and vinegar, select spices, Italian will be sufficient. Always some oregano, simple ingredients. Sliced tomato with the usual, salt and pepper. Anchovies and you got yourself some vittles. har
Garlic in everything. For onions, cottage cheese with chopped onions, bed of lettuce, pepper, of course. Olives, can’t forget olives. Olives for breakfast.
Once leaves begin to brown, you can probably begin to dig, never let garlic get sun drenched, move it all out of the sun when you harvest.
Late July to mid-August for harvest times. Dig deep, don’t slice the garlic cloves.
There is a remarkable thing called food – words of a doctor being interviewed on CBC Radio in Canada ca. 1980.
I wrote to the CBC and requested a transcript, the broadcast said you could, so I did. The interview subject matter was the Vitamin B complex, pernicious anemia,and the efficacious results of direct injection of vitamin B 12. It will save a life.
I think I still have the transcript and could reference quotes to verify what I remember hearing. Been a long time ago now. Tough to remember everything from then to now.
Don’t forget bread and butter, garlic butter will be killer on the bread. Goes with the salad.
Garlic mashed potatoes makes it all better.
P Gosselin –
You stumped me on health benefits I myself have experienced.
Knowing what garlic can do, it’s delicious, so your food is seasoned better.
Food is going to make a difference in your general health.
“Let food be thy medicine, and thy medicine your food.” – Hippocrates
So I did a search to reduce confusion, primarily for my own satisfaction.
From Healtline 11 proven health benefits of garlic:
“3. Garlic Can Combat Sickness, Including the Common Cold”
“Onions are anti-viral too.”
Sadly, as good as they taste, onions are migrainogenic, especially if eaten raw. I’ve found I don’t have a headache problem with cooked sweet onions, but I do miss the stronger ones.
“Been growing garlic for years now.”
More power to ya. I’ve tried to many times, but it’s not so easy in Florida. They do better when we have cold winters, but after a warm winter, I get nothing. And you never know when it’ll be hot or cold until it’s over. Russian roulette. Cheaper to buy, and a LOT less frustration.
Eagerly awaiting the result of the double – blind experiment.
Drink two. If that doesn’t make you go blind, we’ll call it a success. 🙂
Seriously, leave the peel on? That’s not in the link provided in support of the mixture. And, while a little lemon zest shouldn’t be a problem, I’m not a fan of the pith between the peel and the fruit, and I don’t think it has any medical benefit to include it. (I haven’t looked it up, but I know that if I don’t remove all of that before I eat a grapefruit, I don’t feel well afterwards.)
This sound similar to an old family recipe from my youth. My grandmother always insisted this recipe was given to her mother from a Romany family.
6-8 whole garlic lightly crushed,
6 lemons sliced,
A hand-full of Coriander seeds,
Put all the ingredients in a large lidded jar with enough strong gin to cover. Allow to mature in a cool place for 2-6 weeks.
Shake the jar before use. Drink with warm water before bedtime especially when coughs and colds, or flu were about. Top-up as required with more lemon/garlic/coriander seed and gin, ensuring the liquor is kept least 1 inch (2 centimeters) above the garlic & lemon mix at all times.
I’m not sure how well it worked but no one complained that it didn’t. 🙂
