2. Garlic

I guess everyone already knows how beneficial garlic is, it promotes a better immune system and reduce cholesterol levels in the blood, in addition to that, it can lower blood sugar levels thus helping type 2 diabetes patients, that’s why adding it to your meals can lower the sugar spike you would get after eating, so try to add it to your meals or find garlic supplements if you can’t stand the smell of it.
