Garlic is a fantastic boon to health, whether you sleep with it, eat it, or breathe it. There’s no reason not to do all three! But hundreds of years of use as a sleep aid certainly speaks to its unique ability to settle both body and brain and improve the quality of your slumber.
Below are for things that will happen to you if you out garlic under your pillow:
1 – Garlic Repels Mosquitoes & Other Bugs
If you are worried about mosquitoes bites and spiders disturbing your sound sleep, you will definitely consider adding garlic under your pillow. Garlic is an effective repellant against bugs and very toxic to them. Having some under your pillow will naturally makes them avoid your bed. Some people use a garlic and water spray to repel bugs in the garden. But for the purpose of repelling insects, eating garlic doesn’t seem to be as effective. Mosquitoes especially are attracted to the carbon dioxide we exhale, and of course that occurs no matter what we’ve eaten.
2- Garlic Cures Insomania
Putting garlic under your pillow will definitely makes you have better sleep. This remedy for insomnia had been used for ages. It’s counter-intuitive to think that a smell as powerful as garlic could be calming, but it works. Smelling the allicin in garlic can help you fall asleep and stay asleep so that your rest is truly restorative. Also, eating more of it can increase your intake of magnesium and potassium. These two minerals play a vital role in sleep by working synergistically to relax your muscles and produce a chemical called GABA. GABA is the body’s signal that it’s time to calm down, and it chills out your brain cells so that they can begin the restorative work that happens overnight.
