About Garlic (Odorless)

Garlic, or Allium sativum, is an important herb that has been noted for its health benefits for centuries. Garlic contains an active ingredient called allicin which helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Garlic has been shown to decrease total cholesterol levels while increasing levels of good HDL-cholesterol. By using premium Pure-Gar garlic that has been monitored from seed to finished product, you're guaranteed the full nutritional profile of garlic's health-promoting compounds in every batch. Unlike any other garlic you have ever taken. It contains guaranteed standardized yield levels of garlic's key marker compounds.

Clinical studies

In a double-blind placebo-controlled study that followed 152 individuals for 4 years, standardized garlic powder at a dosage of 900 mg daily significantly slowed the development of atherosclerosis as measured by ultrasound.1

In one study, 432 individuals who had suffered a heart attack were given either garlic oil extract or no treatment over a period of 3 years.2 The results showed a significant reduction of second heart attacks and about a 50% reduction in death rate among those taking garlic.

Studies published between 1985 and 1995 found evidence that garlic can lower cholesterol,3-7

One study followed 47 subjects with an average starting blood pressure of 171/101.8 Over a period of 12 weeks, half were treated with 600 mg of garlic powder daily standardized to 1.3% alliin, the other half were given placebo. The results showed a statistically significant drop of 11% in the systolic blood pressure and 13% in the diastolic pressure.

the Iowa Women's Study, a group of 41,837 women were questioned as to their lifestyle habits in 1986, and then followed continuously in subsequent years. At the 4-year follow-up, questionnaires showed that women whose diets included significant quantities of garlic were approximately 30% less likely to develop colon cancer.9
