Effects Of Garlic Consumption On Physiological Variables And Performance During Exercise In Hypoxia

Effect None
Trial Design Cohort
Trial Length 1-7 Days
Number of Subjects 9
Gender Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 4,650mg of garlic bulb extract (46.5mg of allicin) to trained cyclists for one week in three divided doses does not appear to modify cardiometabolic parameters of exercise or improve time to exhaustion under hypoxia.

Protective Effect Of Chronic Garlic Intake On Elastic Properties Of Aorta In The Elderly

Effect None
Trial Design Uncontrolled / observational study
Trial Length 6+ Months
Number of Subjects 101
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 45-64, 65+
Notes for this study:
In older adults who reported consumption of garlic supplements (300-900mg range, average of 460mg) over the previous two years, it was noted that garlic supplement ingestion.

PWV, a measure of aortic stiffness, was lower with garlic and the difference between groups was more notable with older participants; similar trends were noted with EVR (elastic vascular resistance) a measure of blood flow.

Effect Of Garlic (Allium Sativum) Oil On Exercise Tolerance In Patients With Coronary Artery Disease

Effect None
Trial Design Cohort
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 30
Gender Male
Age Range 45-64
Notes for this study:
In persons with coronary artery disease (CAD), supplementation of garlic oil equivalent to 1g of raw garlic daily for six weeks is able to improve physical performance on a treadmill test associated with reduced peak heart rate; there was no influence on resting blood pressure (subjects were not hypertensive) nor on resting heart rate.

Subjects were on stable drug therapy including aspirin and no adverse effects were noted.
