Garlic For Health

Garlic is a plant of the genus Allium and the name of the tubers produced. Garlic has many benefits, with a characteristic smell, but this is probably a good sign for us all health conditions.

Researchers have managed to unravel the mysteries of the causes of eating garlic may help maintain heart health. The key is allicin, which is broken down into sulfate compounds that pollute very smelly breath. These compounds react with red blood and produce hydrogen sulphide which relaxes the blood vessels, and making blood flow easier. Research University of Alabama at Birmingham campus Working Paper appeared in the National Academy of Sciences (NAS).

However, British experts warned taking garlic supplements can cause side effects. Produce hydrogen sulfide rotten egg odor and is used to produce bombs smell (stink bombs). However, at low levels, compounds that play a vital role in helping cells communicate with each other mutually. And, in the blood vessels, a compound that stimulates the cells that form the lining causing vessels to relax and widen. And, this in turn reduces blood pressure, allowing blood to carry more oxygen to essential organs, and reduce pressure on the heart. Alabama research team dipping blood vessels in mice mengadung solution extracts from the crushed garlic.

These striking results produced striking results - with tension within the vessels decreased by 72%.

Many people eat garlic in supplement form

The researchers also found that red blood cells exposed to very little garlic juice are sold in department stores soon produce hydrogen sulfide.
Follow-up experiments showed that chemical reactions take place primarily at the surface of red blood cells. The research team indicate that hydrogen sulphide production in red blood cells may be used to set the standard levels of garlic added to food. Chief researcher Dr David Kraus said: "Our results show garlic in the food was very good.

"Of course in areas where garlic consumption is high, such as the Mediterranean and the Far East, the low occurrence of cardiovascular disease." Judy O'Sullivan, cardiac nurse specialists at the British Heart Foundation (BHF), said: "This interesting study indicates that garlic may be beneficial for heart health. "But still there is no sufficient evidence to support the idea of eating garlic as medicine to reduce the risk of developing heart disease," added O'Sullivan.
"Insert a garlic as part of a varied diet is a personal choice," he said. "Keep in mind that supplements [garlic] in high levels of drugs may interact with blood thinners and may increase the risk of bleeding," said Judy O'Sullivan.
