So your anti aging program includes taking garlic (Allium sativum) for its health benefits? Hippocrates would be proud! So am I!
Garlic may have blood pressure lowering effects. Other studies have shown that an increase in dietary garlic consumption may be associated with a decreased risk for stomach and colorectal cancer.
However, the exact effects of garlic on both cardiovascular disease and cancer risk are still unclear.
Remember, consuming garlic comes with some very real risks. High doses of garlic prolongs bleeding time so it should be discontinued 7-10 days before surgery. Make sure to tell your surgeon about your use of garlic!
Yours in Health!
