African Dry Garlic

Garlic (Allium sativum) is a herb related to onion, leeks, and chives. It is commonly used for conditions related to the heart and blood system. People commonly use garlic for high blood pressure, high levels of cholesterol or other fats in the blood, and hardening of the arteries. It is also used for the common cold, osteoarthritis, and many other conditions. In most recipes, garlic is typically cooked or used in powdered form. Cooking garlic alters its taste and texture, making it softer, milder, and creamier and giving it a more subtle flavor and aroma. However, it can also be enjoyed raw rather than cooked. Although raw garlic tends to have a stronger, more pungent flavor, it can be consumed safely and makes a great addition to many dishes. In fact, raw garlic is often added to dips, dressings, and sauces. What’s more, raw garlic may even retain more beneficial compounds than cooked garlic and improve several aspects of your health.

Health Benefits of Garlic

Here are some health benefits of garlic that are supported by human research.

1. Garlic Contains Compounds with Potent Medicinal Properties

Garlic is a plant in the Allium (onion) family.

It is closely related to onions, shallots and leeks. Each segment of a garlic bulb is called a clove. There are about 10–20 cloves in a single bulb, give or take.

Garlic grows in many parts of the world and is a popular ingredient in cooking due to its strong smell and delicious taste.

However, throughout ancient history, the main use of garlic was for its health and medicinal properties

The sulfur compounds from garlic enter the body from the digestive tract and travel all over the body, where it exerts its potent biological effects.

2. Garlic Is Highly Nutritious but Has Very Few Calories

Calorie for calorie, garlic is incredibly nutritious.

One clove (3 grams) of raw garlic contains

  • Manganese: 2% of the Daily Value (DV)
  • Vitamin B6: 2% of the DV
  • Vitamin C: 1% of the DV
  • Selenium: 1% of the DV
  • Fiber: 0.06 grams
  • Decent amounts of calcium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, iron
    and vitamin B1

This comes with 4.5 calories, 0.2 grams of protein and 1 gram of carbs.

Garlic also contains trace amounts of various other nutrients. In fact, it contains a little bit of almost everything you need.

3. Garlic Can Combat Sickness, Including the Common Cold

Garlic supplements are known to boost the function of the immune system.

, Adding garlic to your diet may be worth trying if you often get colds.

4. The Active Compounds in Garlic Can Reduce Blood Pressure

Human studies have found garlic supplements to have a significant impact on reducing blood pressure in people with high blood pressure

In one study, 600–1,500 mg of aged garlic extract was just as effective as the drug Atenolol at reducing blood pressure over a 24-week period.

5. Garlic Improves Cholesterol Levels, Which May Lower the Risk of Heart Disease

Garlic can lower total and LDL cholesterol.

For those with high cholesterol, garlic supplements appear to reduce total and/or LDL cholesterol by about 10–15%

High triglyceride levels are another known risk factor for heart disease, but garlic seems to have no significant effects on triglyceride levels

6. 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 mechanisms 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

The combined effects on reducing cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as the antioxidant properties, may reduce the risk of common brain diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia

7. Garlic May Help You Live Longer

The potential effects of garlic on longevity are basically impossible to prove in humans.

But given the beneficial effects on important risk factors like blood pressure, it makes sense that garlic could help you live longer.

The fact that it can fight infectious disease is also an important factor, because these are common causes of death, especially in the elderly or people with dysfunctional immune systems.

8. Athletic Performance Might Be Improved with Garlic Supplements

Garlic was one of the earliest “performance enhancing” substances.

It was traditionally used in ancient cultures to reduce fatigue and enhance the work capacity of laborers. Most notably, it was given to Olympic athletes in ancient Greece.

Rodent studies have shown that garlic helps with exercise performance,

People with heart disease who take garlic oil for 6 weeks are likely to have a 12% reduction in peak heart rate and better exercise capacity

9. Eating Garlic May Help Detoxify Heavy Metals in the Body

At high doses, the sulfur compounds in garlic have been shown to protect against organ damage from heavy metal toxicity.

A four-week study in employees of a car battery plant (excessive exposure to lead) found that garlic reduced lead levels in the blood by 19%. It also reduced many clinical signs of toxicity, including headaches and blood pressure

Three doses of garlic each day even outperformed the drug D-penicillamine in reducing symptoms.

10. Garlic May Improve Bone Health

No human studies have measured the effects of garlic on bone loss.

However, rodent studies have shown that it can minimize bone loss by increasing estrogen in females

One study in menopausal women found that a daily dose of dry garlic extract (equal to 2 grams of raw garlic) significantly decreased a marker of estrogen deficiency.

This suggests that this supplement may have beneficial effects on bone health in women.

Foods like garlic and onions may also have beneficial effects on osteoarthritis.

11. Garlic Is Easy to Include in Your Diet and Tastes Absolutely Delicious

Garlic is very easy (and delicious) to include in your current diet.

It complements most savory dishes, particularly soups and sauces. The strong taste of garlic can also add a punch to otherwise bland recipes.

Garlic comes in several forms, from whole cloves and smooth pastes to powders and supplements like garlic extract and garlic oil.

A common way to use garlic is to press a few cloves of fresh garlic with a garlic press, then mix it with extra virgin olive oil and a bit of salt.
