Garlic & Heart Disease
Coming off the heels of an incredible seminar on cardiovascular health, we figured it was apropos to re-visit garlic and its myriad of cardio-protective properties.
Sayer Ji, founder of GreenMedInfo, refers to garlic as a ‘natural poly-pill’ in that its catalogue of therapeutic benefits are diverse. He goes on to say, “Garlic is a powerful, time-tested, safe, affordable and easily accessible natural healing agent with dozens of documented side benefits (1)”
What are some of the demonstrated cardio-protective effects of garlic?
- Cholesterol-reducing effects
- Blood vessel dilating effects (blood pressure lowering)
- Anti-inflammatory effects
- Antioxidant effects (inhibiting LDL oxidation)
(1)-Important- For those on medication such as blood thinners, please enlist the guidance of a trained medical professional before including and or experimenting with bolus doses of garlic and or garlic concentrates.
