Garlic has been proven to support the cardiovascular system. It may lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood- inhibit platelet stickiness (aggregation)- and increase fibrinolysis- which results in a slowing of blood coagulation. Garlic is also mildly antihypertensive and is an antioxidant. Garlic has antibacterial- antiviral- and antifungal activity. It may work against some intestinal parasites. Garlic appears to have roughly 1- the strength of penicillin against certain types of bacteria. This means it’s not a substitute for antibiotics- but it can be considered as a support against some bacterial infections. Candida albicans (a form of yeast) growth is inhibited by garlic- and garlic has shown long-term benefit for recurrent yeast infections.
