Just a small amount of aged garlic extract had a similar effect to commonly prescribed medication in reducing blood pressure. Enough to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by 16 – 40% according to researchers at the University of Adelaide.

  • reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • decreasing platelet aggregation
  • preventing fat oxidation
  • increasing antioxidant levels

In the study of 79 patients, a dose of 480 mg per day, providing 1.2 mg of S-allylcysteine provided the most effective.
