Medical Science Finally Admits That Garlic Supplements Prevent And Reverse Heart Disease

The Journal of Nutrition says garlic supplementation reduced blood pressure by 7–16 mm Hg (systolic) and 5–9 mm Hg (diastolic) (4 meta-analyses and 2 original studies). It reduced total cholesterol by 7.4–29.8 mg/dL (8 meta-analyses). The most consistent benefits were shown in studies that used aged garlic extract (AGE).

A new study suggests garlic should be recognized for its life-saving attributes

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 1:2 (KJV)

For years now, I have taken daily aged garlic extract supplements from Kyolic, as well as adding it to meals when cooking. Research I did a long time ago told me that garlic could keep your blood pressure low, prevent platelets from sticking together, boost immune functions and work to suppress bacterias and viruses. Now medical science, long the bitter enemy of the supplement industry, admits that garlic does everything health foodies have always said it did.

Top 10 Proven Health Benefits of Eating Raw Organic Garlic:

Aged garlic extract reduces dangerous plaque buildup in arteries, according to the study from Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. That helps prevent the progression of heart disease – which is the leading cause of death worldwide.

Lead study author Dr Matthew Budoff said: ‘This study is another demonstration of the benefits of this supplement in reducing the accumulation of soft plaque and preventing the formation of new plaque in the arteries, which can cause heart disease.’

The Journal of Nutrition says garlic supplementation reduced blood pressure by 7–16 mm Hg (systolic) and 5–9 mm Hg (diastolic) (4 meta-analyses and 2 original studies). It reduced total cholesterol by 7.4–29.8 mg/dL (8 meta-analyses). The most consistent benefits were shown in studies that used aged garlic extract (AGE). A few small studies that used AGE also showed favorable effects on CAC, CRP, and PWV. Although garlic is generally safe, rare adverse reactions have been documented with limited causality established.

The following provides a list of sulfur-containing garlic’s constituents that help lower our risk of oxidative stress:

  • alliin
  • allicin
  • allixin
  • allyl polysulfides (APS)*
  • diallyl sulfide (DAS)
  • diallyl disulfude (DADS)
  • diallyl trisulfide (DATS)
  • N-acetylcysteine (NAC)
  • N-acetyl-S-allylcysteine (NASC)
  • S-allylcysteine (SAC)
  • S-allylmercaptocysteine (SAMC)
  • S-ethylcysteine (SEC)
  • S-methylcysteine (SMC)
  • S-propylcysteine (SPC)
  • 1,2-vinyldithiin (1,2-DT)
  • thiacremonone

From a medical history standpoint, the antibacterial and antiviral properties of garlic are perhaps its most legendary feature. This allium vegetable and its constituents have been studied not only for their benefits in controlling infection by bacteria and viruses, but also infection from other microbes including yeasts/fungi and worms. (One particular disulfide in garlic, called ajoene, has been successfully used to help prevent infections with the yeast Candida albicans.) Very recent research has shown the ability of crushed fresh garlic to help prevent infection by the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa in burn patients. Also of special interest has been the ability of garlic to help in the treatment of bacterial infections that are difficult to treat due to the presence of bacteria that have become resistant to prescription antibiotics. However, most of the research on garlic as an antibiotic has involved fresh garlic extracts or powdered garlic products rather than fresh garlic in whole food form.

Overgrowth of the bacterium Helicobacter pylori in the stomach—a key risk factor for stomach ulcer—has been another key area of interest for researchers wanting to explore garlic’s antibacterial benefits. Results in this area, however, have been mixed and inconclusive. While garlic may not be able to alter the course of infection itself, there may still be health benefits from garlic in helping to regulate the body’s response to that infection.

Having worked for one of the Big Pharma companies and sat in closed-door meetings about drug safety, I can assure you that statins are not the way to go if your doctor tells you your cholesterol or blood pressure is too high. Garlic gets to the root causes and reverses heart disease naturally, statins do not.

Aged garlic extract supplements, which have the odor removed, can be one of the most powerful weapons in your arsenal to help defend against disease and premature aging. For best results take it with food twice a da, and make it a permanent part of your daily health routine.

    Geoffrey, do you recommend a specific product? I’m 46 and in relatively good health.

    • I recommend the Kyolic brand garlic supplement, either just straight garlic or with added nutrients. I like the one with the digestive enzymes.

      • Derrick

        OK thanks. I had looked at the Kyolic Formulas product page and noticed many different choices. The Total Heart Health product (108) sounds good.

  • Todd

    Hey brother, do you know if the old preacher uses this any in his daily foods? Sure been praying for his speedy recover. Good article.

    • Yes, I believe he does, he is actually very health conscious.

  • Kiwiwatcher

    A very good plant indeed.

    “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” Genesis 1:29

    For those who find the raw garlic difficult to take. Place raw piece of peeled garlic in bed sock on each foot, when going to bed. Will be absorbed into the bloodstream – takes about 30mins for the garlic to be noticed on the breath. Great for children.

  • Geoffrey this is so true! Years ago, I just told my husband, “I’m just going to eat what my Italian grandparents ate.” (All the lamestream media were doing 180’s on all their recommendations, & I had no confidence in them). My gran lived to be 106, and grandfather was 1 month short of 100. They did not die of any disease, either; their bodies just wore out! They started every meal with fresh garlic and onions, (cooked in olive oil) & we always had fresh garlic on greens.
    Of course, they didn’t have fluoride, chemtrails, processed foods, and all the other environmental toxins they are foisting upon us today! Wish we could go back to those days!!

    Thank you for the “reminder” Geoffrey! I used to take garlic supplements many years ago, stopped when I got to taking so many things it was just too expensive, too much…..but I just ordered some for me & husband. Good stuff.

    For many years now, I’ve been taking horseradish and garlic tablets, pretty much for the sole purpose of preventing sinusitis to which I am prone. It has worked well for this purpose, but if the garlic is benefitting other areas also, then that’s a great bonus for me. Our wonderful Creator has given us so many good things, praise His awesome name.

    oh! from GODs glory, to ms.mornin glory, we are goin back to those days, soon!!!!! hallelujah!!!!!! (left out tha”g’s cause Im southern yall)
