For centuries, Garlic has been used for its exceptional revitalizing properties.It supports heart and cardiovascular health, as well as antioxidant health Garlic is a species in the onion family. Its close relatives include the onion, the shallot, and the leek. Garlic has been used throughout recorded history for both culinary and medicinal purposes. Garlic has been used in many cultures for thousands of years, dating at least as far back as the time that the Egyptian pyramids were built. Garlic is claimed to help prevent heart disease including atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and cancer.
A study by Silagy and Neil (1994) showed that that garlic supplements have an important part to play in the treatment of high cholesterol. Overall, a 12% reduction in total cholesterol was shown over a placebo and that this reduction was normally evident after only 4 weeks treatment and was considered likely to persist for as long as the study was in progress. The largest study so far was conducted in Germany where 261 patients from 30 general practices were given either garlic powder tablets or a placebo. After a 12 week treatment period, cholesterol levels dropped by 12% in the garlic treated group and triglycerides dropped by 17% compared to the placebo group. Studies (Dr D Sooranna, Ms J Hirani and Dr I Das, Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, London, UK) reveal that garlic may help to boost the birth-weight of babies destined to be too small. They concluded that taking standardized garlic tablets throughout pregnancy may decrease the chances of these types of complications at birth. Experiments by the research team showed that adding extracts of garlic to cells from the placenta of women likely to suffer from these conditions was able to quickly stimulate growth. Furthermore, the activity of key enzymes that are reduced in the abnormal pregnancies were significantly increased when garlic was added.
