Garlic extract clears arteries of fat deposits
About the author: 
Bryan Hubbard

Garlic extract can clear the arteries of plaque, usually the precursor of a heart attack. It slows the accumulation of ‘soft plaque’ by up to 80 per cent, and reduces the amount of fatty deposits in the arteries, a new study has found.

The supplement, Aged Garlic Extract, has been tested in four different studies, and researchers are confident that it “can help slow the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries from fatty deposits) and reverse the early stages of heart disease,” says Matthew Budoff, at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute.

A 2,400 milligram dose of the supplement every day seems to reverse many of the symptoms of early-stage heart disease, say researchers who, in their latest study, tested it on a group of 55 patients, aged between 40 and 75. The participants were suffering from metabolic syndrome, characterised by obesity, high blood pressure (hypertension) and cardiac disease.

The participants were screened at the beginning of the year-long study for coronary plaque levels and again afterwards.
