Why is Garlic Heart Healthy?

08-Garlic-BulbGarlic is not everybody’s cup of tea, probably due to the after breath aroma!

However the unique benefits of garlic are many and it is highly recommended for people with bad cholesterol.

But what is it that makes garlic a natural medicine for a healthy heart? The answer is that it has an element called Allicin, Allicin disintegrates the foul smelling and bad breath emitting sulphur compounds in garlic and these sulphur compounds react with red blood cells and in turn produce hydrogen sulphide which relaxes the blood vessels to help keep the blood flowing easily.

Recent research indicates that in the future, garlic is most likely to be used in treating obesity due to its blood thinning and LDL cholesterol fighting properties.
