No other herb has as much research behind it as Garlic. Its use as a supplement and in food makes it a best selling herb for winter protection, as well as lowering blood fat lipids. Garlic has always been esteemed and is reputed to have been valued by the ancient Egyptians and Greeks.
Garlic has been used in connection with the following conditions:
- Colon cancer (reduces risk of stomach, oesophageal, and colon cancers)
- Common cold
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- High triglycerides
- Athlete’s foot
- Chronic candidiasis
The sulphur compound allicin, produced by crushing or chewing fresh garlic or by taking powdered garlic products with allicin potential, in turn produces other sulphur compounds: ajoene, allyl sulfides, and vinyldithiins.
Many publications have shown that garlic supports the cardiovascular system. While trials suggest it may mildly lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood. Garlic also inhibits platelet stickiness (aggregation) and increases fibrinolysis, which results in a slowing of blood coagulation.
Garlic’s cardiovascular protective effects were illustrated in a four-year clinical trial on people 50–80 years old with atherosclerosis. It was found that consumption of a standardised garlic supplement reduced arterial plaque formation by 5–18%.
In test tube studies garlic has been found to have antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal activity. Human population studies suggest that eating garlic regularly reduces the risk of oesophageal, stomach, and colon cancer. This may be partly due to garlic’s ability to reduce the formation of carcinogenic compounds.
