Garlic (Allium sativum) has a long history spanning more than 4000 years as a food flavoring agent, condiment, and traditional folk remedy for numerous ailments. It is a bulbous perennial plant closely related to chives, leeks, onions, and shallots. Garlic contains numerous sulfur-containing phytochemicals that produce its distinctive flavor when chopped, crushed, or chewed. Researchers believe garlic owes most of its health benefits to these compounds, which include allicin, diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulfide, and S-allylcysteine. The sulfuric compounds directly affect numerous biological processes and signaling pathways, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-thrombotic mechanics.
Ancient Babylonian, Chinese, Greek, Roman, and Viking cultures used garlic to boost their natural immune defenses, protect against infectious agents, and enhance their physical capabilities. Modern research has focused on garlic’s effects on the immune system, antioxidants, inflammation, and heart health.
Garlic is rich in antioxidants and helps support the body’s natural defensive mechanisms. Antioxidants are essential to prevent free radical molecules from destroying cell membranes. Garlic antioxidants also help lower markers of oxidative stress and inflammation that contribute to premature aging if left unchecked. Additionally, garlic helps boost levels of other antioxidants in the body.
Garlic supplements may provide a boost to the immune system. Research shows it exerts beneficial effects against the common cold. One study found that individuals taking garlic supplements experienced a 70% reduction in the length of common cold symptoms compared to the placebo group. The garlic group recovered in one and a half days, whereas the placebo group continued to experience symptoms for five days. Another study reported similar findings and noted a 61% reduction in sick days due to the common cold.
Garlic interacts with numerous markers of heart health. Several studies have reported garlic has a significant beneficial effect on individuals with high blood pressure. Garlic may also help balance cholesterol levels. Research shows that garlic supplements lowered total and LDL (bad) cholesterol by 10-15% in individuals with high cholesterol.
Garlic supplements may cause upset stomach, heartburn, gas, bad breath, and body odor. However, these are more common when consuming raw garlic.
Individuals with diabetes, high blood pressure, or HIV and those taking protease inhibitors, HIV medications, antidiabetics, anticoagulants, or antihypertensive medications should consult a physician before taking garlic extract supplements. Individuals should stop taking garlic supplements at least two weeks prior to a planned surgery, as garlic can affect coagulation, blood pressure, and blood sugar.
