Both garlic and honey are antifungals and antimicrobials. These elements will help you fight viruses and bacteria much more effectively.

2. It improves blood circulation

If consumed on a regular basis, this lemon, garlic and honey syrup will help you improve your blood circulation and lower your blood pressure. That happens due to the allicin present in garlic and the nutrients in honey, as well as the powerful impact vitamin C has on your heart’s veins and arteries.

How to make a lemon, garlic and honey syrup

Lemon garlic and honey syrup


  • 1 cup of honey (12 oz)
  • 10 cloves of garlic
  • 1 glass jar with cover
  • The peel of 1/2 a lemon


As we often remind you, it’s always important to try to use organic products. When it comes to honey, it’s essential. Sometimes, supermarket honey is adulterated with too much sugar and no nutrients. If that’s the case, it won’t do you any good.

Without further ado, here’s how to make it:

  • First, mince or crush the garlic. Easy!
  • Second, pour the honey into the glass jar and add the garlic.
  • Next, cut the lemon peel into several pieces and add them to the jar along with the other ingredients.
  • After that, put the top on and keep in a cool, dark place for three days.
  • After this time, you’ll have an incredibly good-for-you remedy.

How to use it

  • You can take a spoonful by itself before breakfast every day.
  • You can also dilute the spoonful in a glass of warm water. Drink this before breakfast and without food.

Ideally, this lemon,garlic and honey syrup should be taken for 7 days straight, followed by 10 days off, and repeated.

You’ll see results in no time!
