Garlic is good for cardiovascular problems

There are several medicinal plants and their single components which have been shown to have beneficial effects against cardiovascular disorders.

Garlic is one of potential herb for use in cardiovascular disorder. Garlic is said to be good for cardiovascular problems due to its blood pressure lowering effects, blood lipid lowering effects and its anticoagulant properties.

Garlic has been shown to reduce the size of plaque deposits, the ‘hard’ material that clogs and stiffens arteries by nearly 50 percent in humans, rats and rabbits.

Garlic has been shown to protect against myocardial infarction, doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity, cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac hypertrophy, and ischemia-reperfusion injury.

Scientists suggested that the major benefit effects of garlic intake, specifically on cardiovascular disease and more broadly on overall health are mediated by the biological production of H2S.

H2S is also known as rotten egg gas, is toxic in high amounts. H2S is also a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant molecule that can increase antioxidant defences.
