Garlic reduces high blood pressure levels

Sep 12, 2012 Written by 

Garlic from time immemorial has been known to keep cholesterol under control. A recent study has claimed that the pungent herb can help in controlling and reducing high blood pressure.

The study by University of Adelaide notes that high blood pressure levels can be brought down if garlic is taken frequently. The conclusion that garlic was good for blood pressure was reached after analysing eleven studies, in which the patients were asked to take garlic supplements.

It was found that the blood pressure levels of the patients who took garlic supplements had drastically come down. The study has found that the systolic blood pressure was reduced by an average of 4.6 mm HG with garlic takers. Patients with high blood pressure, the study has noted that the systolic blood pressure came down by 8.4 mm Hg and the diastolic blood pressure an average of 7.3 mm Hg.

The researchers claim that the garlic’s effects were similar to anti0hypertensive medicines, which are widely used. Garlic is also known to prevent the development of atherosclerosis, which leads to heart diseases. Apart from reducing cholesterol and blood pressure, garlic has been widely said to be good for some kind of cancer, like the stomach and colon cancers.
