Proven Health Benefits Of Garlic

Garlic contains antioxidants that may help prevent Alzheimer's disease and dementia

Oxidative damage from free radicals contributes to the aging process. Garlic contains antioxidants that support the body's protective mechanism against oxidative damage.

High doses of garlic supplements have been shown to increase antioxidant enzymes in humans, as well as significantly reduce oxidative stress in those with high blood pressure. So the combined effects of reducing cholesterol levels and high blood pressure and its antioxidant properties may help with preventing brain diseases like Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia.

Garlic can combat sickness including the common cold.

Garlic is known to boost the function of the immune system. The study found out that a daily garlic intake reduces the number of colds by 63% compared with a placebo. The average length of cold symptoms was also reduced by 70% from days in the placebo to just one and half days.
