"Raw or cooked, garlic adds a zing to savoury dishes and, according to one meta-analysis of previous studies, one clove a day can lower cholesterol by about nine per cent," Aikens says.

RW serving suggestion: Garlic crostini
Mash one clove of garlic into a paste with one tsp of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. Spread over four slices of baguette and grill until golden.
