Garlic is one of the most valuable and versatile foods on the planet. It is best known for its culinary uses but over the years, garlic has been used as a medicine to prevent or treat a wide range of diseases and conditions. The fresh clove or supplements made from the clove are used for medicine.
- Garlic may produce modest but not clinically significant effects in the treatment of high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Traditionally, it has been used for its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, as well as for treating the common cold, upper respiratory tract infections, mild bronchitis, and rhinitis, and to relieve cough and congestion. Other potential uses include treatment of atherosclerosis, enlarged prostate, diabetes, gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, and stomach and colon cancer; however, evidence is lacking.
