Garlic in medicine, what is it really for?

We often talk about the benefits of garlic in medicine, there are truthful things and others to take a bit with a grain of salt, as they say.

Garlic is said to lower blood pressure and this has actually been proven in several studies, but it also needs to be said that none of these studies were very large and it appears that garlic particularly reduces systolic blood pressure. In any case the studies were not on those who eat garlic but those who take garlic tablets for at least three months. Studies have also noted that blood pressure drops only in cases of people with high blood pressure, those with normal blood pressure see no significant difference.

Other studies say that the garlic decreases the chances of getting cancer. Again there have been several studies that have proven that garlic can help prevent certain types of cancer especially colon cancer. It is also known that garlic in medicine prevents the growth of certain malignant cells in vitro but we do not know for sure how it behaves in the human body.

Many use the garlic as an antibiotic, antifungal and even as an antiparasitic. There is no doubt that garlic is capable of killing certain bacteria and even fungi. We know that it is quite effective against Helicobacter pylori, a bacillus found in the stomach. This bacillus has been associated with many gastrointestinal disorders, such as stomach ulcers and cancer. Staphylococcus aureus is also quite vulnerable to garlic.

Obviously if you are infested with vampires, garlic could prove quite useful.

If you want to have these benefits you will have to use raw and fresh garlic, or in tablets. Raw garlic produces the highest amounts of allicin and antioxidants. Blood pressure control is achieved by eating a clove of garlic every day. The cooked and cooked garlic that you put on your dishes unfortunately does not have these medicinal properties. If you want to use garlic medicinally but not stink, there are still plenty of odorless pills and tablets on the market.
