10 Proven Health Benefits of Garlic

“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” — Hippocrates

1. Garlic Contains Compounds With Potent Medicinal Properties

Garlic is a plant in the onion family that’s grown for its distinctive taste and health benefits. It contains sulfur compounds, which are believed to bring some of the health benefits.

2. Garlic Is Highly NutritiousBut Has Very Few Calories

One clove (3 grams) of raw garlic contains:

  • Manganese:2% of the Daily Value (DV)
  • Vitamin B6: 2% of the DV
  • Vitamin C:1% of the DV
  • Selenium:1% of the DV
  • Fiber:06 grams
  • Decent amounts of calcium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, iron and vitamin B1

Garlic is low in calories and rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6, and manganese. It also contains trace amounts of various other nutrients.

3. Garlic Can Combat Sickness, Including the Common Cold

One large, 12-week study found that a daily garlic supplement reduced the number of colds by 63% compared to a placebo.

The average length of cold symptoms was reduced by 70%, from 5 days in the placebo group to just 1.5 days in the garlic group.

Another study found that a high dose of aged garlic extract (2.56 grams per day) reduced the number of days sick with cold or flu by 61%.

4. The Active Compounds in Garlic Can Reduce Blood Pressure

In one study, 600–1,500 mg of aged garlic extract was just as effective as the drug, Atenolol, to reduce blood pressure over 24 weeks.

Supplement doses must be fairly high to have the desired effects. The amount needed is equivalent to about four cloves of garlic per day.

5. Garlic Improves Cholesterol Levels, Which May Lower the Risk of Heart Disease

Garlic can lower total and LDL cholesterol. For those with high cholesterol, garlic supplements reduce total and/or LDL cholesterol by about 10–15%.

High triglyceride levels are another known risk factor for heart disease, but garlic seems to have no significant triglyceride effects.

6. Garlic Contains Antioxidants That May Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia

Garlic contains antioxidants that support the body’s protective mechanisms against oxidative damage.

The combined effects of reducing cholesterol and blood pressure and antioxidant properties may reduce the risk of common brain diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

7. Garlic May Help You Live Longer

Given the beneficial effects on important risk factors like blood pressure, it makes sense that garlic could help you live longer.

The fact that it can fight infectious disease is also an important factor, because these are common causes of death, especially in the elderly or people with dysfunctional immune systems.

8. Athletic PerformanceMight Be Improved With Garlic Supplements

Garlic was one of the earliest “performance enhancing” substances. Most notably, it was given to Olympic athletes in ancient Greece. Rodent studies have shown that garlic helps with exercise performance, but very few human studies have been done.

9. Eating Garlic May Help Detoxify Heavy Metals in the Body

A four-week study in employees of a car battery plant (excessive exposure to lead) found that garlic reduced lead levels in the blood by 19%. It also reduced many clinical signs of toxicity, including headaches and blood pressure.

10. Garlic May Improve Bone Health

Rodent studies have shown that it can minimize bone loss by increasing estrogen in females.

One study in menopausal women found that a daily dose of dry garlic extract (equal to 2 grams of raw garlic) significantly decreased a marker of estrogen deficiency.
