Dietary Supplementation With Aged Garlic Extract Inhibits ADP-induced Platelet Aggregation In Humans

Effect None
Trial Design Cohort
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 23
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 18-29, 30-44
Body Types Average
Notes for this study:
When giving otherwise healthy adults garlic juice (5mL daily for 13 weeks), platelets appeared to have a reduced rate of aggregation in response to ADP (no influence on maximal aggregation level) with a nonsignificant trend to reduce Thromboxane B2. There was actually a trend to reduce triglycerides in these otherwise healthy adults (13%), but that and all other cardiovascular parameters were not significantly influenced except for a reduction in the liver enzyme ALT (20%)
