Garlic Extract and Heart Disease

Overweight? If so, you are prone to increased chronic inflammation and heart disease. According to this study, garlic extract may help counter this problem.

Garlic extract improved circulation and reduced chronic inflammation in obese individuals. In this study, 88 obese men and women, aged 25 to 60, with no history of high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, stroke, or congestive heart failure, took 400 mg per day of garlic extract, or a placebo.

After three months, while there was no change for those taking placebo, arterial stiffness had improved, becoming more flexible and lowering chances for a circulatory event. Also for garlic, levels of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein-an inflammatory factor-declined, as did LDL, the "bad" cholesterol, while total antioxidant capacity increased.

Discussing the findings, doctors said the results show, in obese individuals, garlic extract may improve arterial flexibility, reduce chronic inflammation, and lower chances for heart and circulatory events.
