Chop and Wait Before Cooking With Garlic
There is new scientific evidence that eating garlic may reduce your chances of getting a heart attack. In order to be most effective, the garlic needs to be chopped up and sauteed or cooked for a short while. The beneficial ingredient will develop over time so be sure to chop up the garlic and let it sit for about 10 minutes before using.
Usually I would chop the garlic as my last step before throwing it in the pan. Now I just make sure to mince or press garlic as my first step when cooking and then prep the rest of the food. It is easy enough to do if I know it is important.

It's the same way with carrots... The Beta Carotene is more easily assimilated if the carrots are cooked a bit.
