Lipid-lowering Effects Of Time-released Garlic Powder Tablets In Double-blinded Placebo-controlled Randomized Study

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 42
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 30-44, 45-64
Body Types Overweight
Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 600mg garlic (Allicor) in two divided doses of 300mg daily for 12 weeks in persons with high cholesterol is able to beneficially influence cholesterol and blood pressure without affecting markers of toxicology (immune and red blood cells, liver enzymes) and without any apparent effect on triglycerides.

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

Effect Decrease
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%)
