Garlic Powder has been traditionally used to assist with the lowering of Cholesterol
- Contains natural sulfur-based compounds (allicin, ajoene, alliin)
- Considerable evidence affirms garlic''s cholesterol-lowering abilities.
Depending on the study and form of garlic used, the herb may lower total cholesterol by 6 to 12%, LDL cholesterol by 4 to 11%, and triglycerides by 17%. The effects on HDL cholesterol appear to be minimal. These are not gigantic benefits, but they may be all some patients need.A German study published in 1990 was one of the largest human trials. In this placebo-controlled randomized study, a total of 261 patients at 30 different medical centers were given either 800 mg of standardized garlic powder daily (containing 1.3% alliin) or placebo. At the start, average total cholesterol in the garlic group was 265 mg/dL and in the placebo group, 261. Over the course of 16 weeks, total cholesterol in the garlic-treated group fell 12% (compared to 3% in the placebo group) and triglyceride levels dropped 17% (compared to 2% in the placebo group). The greatest benefits occurred in patients with initial cholesterol levels of 250 to 300Garlic for Health Today, we know garlic is an excellent herb for creating and maintaining overall health, but it also has many lesser known, but powerful qualities.
