Recent study proved that garlic can reduce cholesterol level in our body


IllustrationIllustration - Quoted from the Times of India, a study found that garlic extract can reduce cholesterol by 7 percent. In men with hypercholesterolemia, garlic extract can reduce LDL or low-density lipoprotein (bad cholesterol) by 10 percent.

Another study revealed consuming two garlic extract tablets every day in six weeks can reduce total cholesterol levels by 12 percent, bad cholesterol (LDL) by 17 percent, and lower triglyceride levels by 5 percent.

Meanwhile, garlic also increases HDL or high-density lipoprotein (good cholesterol) in the body, and even some studies claim a 15 percent increase in HDL. The researchers examined overall blood lipids improved after consuming garlic extract for four months. Although the benefits cannot be felt in a short time, garlic is used as a long-term drug for cholesterol problems.

Although garlic can increase the overall lipid profile, doctors still doubt other evidence, but for some it is strong enough so that not infrequently there is not recommending garlic as a cholesterol-lowering drug.
