The garlic is well known for the substance that it contains – the allicin. Besides the specific smell it can also be used for reducing the fats which pile up on the walls of the arteries. In fact, the allicin blocks the activity of the angiotensin and it stops the contraction of the blood veins and the increasing of the blood pressure. This is why we recommend the garlic as the perfect natural ingredient for the health of your heart and blood vessels.
The garlic is best used in its natural – fresh form, and we do not recommend you cooking it on high temperatures. When the garlic is being squashed and chopped it releases the allicin, and when being cooked the garlic loses its curing powers. There are various garlic based additives such as: garlic extracts, garlic in powder form, and garlic tablets.
HOW MUCH GARLIC SHOULD YOU CONSUME?
If you want to prevent the high blood pressure we recommend you eating somewhere around 1 gr. of garlic a day. And of course if you are consuming some medications for high blood pressure consult your doctor about the right dosage and if you can consume the garlic with the pills and medications you are prescribed. If you want to treat the high blood pressure you cannot regulate it entirely with just consuming garlic.
The experts say that to do that you should eat at least 30 cloves of garlic per day. But, as we know, nothing is impossible. If you do not mind the specific smell of the garlic you can consume it fresh and natural. But if you cannot stand the smell of the garlic there is an alternative way of consuming it. You can also find some garlic based pills and tablets.
