Since 3000 B.C., probably there does not exist a better-known and studied medicinal plant than Garlic. It has been applied for centuries in numerous and various ways. Besides its cooking properties, it is attributed to having antimicrobial properties and useful in controlling the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, as well as preventing different types of diseases.
A healthy heart is a healthy life. Garlic may help support a healthy cardiovascular system. Garlic contains Alliin and enzyme Allanase, which combined produce Alicine, the active ingredient which scientists believe is responsible for the cardiovascular health. It also shows anticoagulant properties, changing the agglutinant properties of the blood and inhibiting the formation of dangerous clots. Garlic is also one of the best expectorants that exists, because when it reaches the lungs it breaks away with the active ingredients.
