Scientists now know that most of its health benefits come from the sulfur compounds, the most popular one being allicin. Other compounds that may play a role in garlic’s health benefits include diallyl disulfide and s-allyl cysteine.
Can garlic help with high blood pressure?
Garlic health benefits include:
- Lowering high blood pressure in hypertensive patients
- For those with high cholesterol, garlic supplements appear to reduce total and/or LDL cholesterol by about 10–15%. Researchers at Ankara University investigated the effects of garlic extract supplementation on the blood lipid (fat) profile of patients with high blood cholesterol. Their study was published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.
At the end of the 4 months, the researchers concluded “…garlic extract supplementation improves blood lipid profile, strengthens blood antioxidant potential, and causes significant reductions in systolic and diastolic blood pressures. It also leads to a decrease in the level of oxidation product (MDA) in the blood samples, which demonstrates reduced oxidation reactions in the body.” In other words, the garlic extract supplements reduced high cholesterol levels, and also blood pressure in the patients with hypertension. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/265853#benefits
