Is eating raw garlic beneficial for the heart conditions?


Date: 01 Sep 2016    Group: Health    Category: Nutrition   

I have heard that eating a few cloves of raw garlic daily is very useful for managing one's heart conditions. Is it really so? How many cloves of garlic should be chewed in such cases and at what time of the day? Should it be taken without any other food item or it can be taken at the meal time also?
Awaiting response.

Freshly crushed garlic generates Hydrogen sulfide (H2S), a gas which is also generated from rotten eggs. Although H2S in excess may become harmful, in small quantities it functions as an intra-cellular signalling compound and can protect the heart.

Fresh garlic reduces damage from lack of oxygen. It also helps restoring oxygen-rich blood flow in the aorta, and increases pressure in the heart's left ventricle.
