5. Garlic extract benefits for human
a. Protect the heart and clear blood vessels
The results of epidemiological studies show that in areas where the average person eats 20 grams of raw garlic per day, the incidence of deaths from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases in the population is significantly lower than in areas where there is no habit of eating raw garlic.
b. Resist thrombus
Studies have found that the essential oil in garlic can inhibit platelet aggregation and achieve the effect of preventing thrombosis.
c. Lower blood lipids
The results of the clinical study showed that the subjects consumed 50 grams of raw garlic a day, and after 6 days of continuous consumption, the serum total cholesterol, triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels were significantly lower than the levels before the test.
d. Reduce blood viscosity
Several studies have shown that smoking and alcohol abuse can significantly increase blood viscosity, but if raw garlic is consumed at the same time, this adverse effect will be partially offset.
e. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory
Garlic is a natural plant broad-spectrum antibiotic. Garlic contains about 2% allicin. Its bactericidal ability is 1/10 of penicillin. It is resistant to many pathogenic bacteria such as staphylococcus, meningitis, pneumonia, streptococcus, diphtheria and dysentery. , Typhoid fever, paratyphoid fever, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Vibrio cholerae have obvious inhibitory and killing effects. It can also kill more kinds of pathogenic fungi and hookworms, pinworms and trichomoniasis. Eating garlic raw is an effective way to prevent influenza and prevent intestinal infections. However, it should be noted that allicin is easily destroyed under high temperature and loses its bactericidal effect.
f. Eliminate fatigue and restore physical strength
Garlic with pork is a good way to eat it. Pork is one of the most vitamin B1-rich foods. The combination of vitamin B1 and allicin contained in garlic can relieve fatigue and restore physical strength.
Eating raw garlic every day can reduce the degree of allergic reactions, especially allergies caused by temperature changes. The best way is to start eating raw garlic a few weeks before the allergy season.
Foreign studies have found that the sulfur-containing compounds in garlic can promote the production of an enzyme or allicin in the intestines, which can be eliminated in the intestines by enhancing the body’s immunity, blocking the formation of lipid peroxidation and anti-mutation. The substance causes the risk of intestinal tumors. However, it is still unclear how many such enzymes need to be produced in order to effectively play the anti-tumor effect of garlic.
6. Garlic extract powder mechanism of action
Strengthening cardiovascular system is an important function of garlic extract.
The occurrence of cardiovascular disease is related to many factors, such as the increase of serum total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein content, the enhancement of low-density lipoprotein oxidation, increasing platelet aggregation, hypertension, and smoking.
A large number of in vitro studies have confirmed that garlic has the effect of attenuating these influencing factors: including inhibiting fat synthase, reducing platelet aggregation, preventing lipid peroxidation of red blood cells and low-density lipoproteins, increasing antioxidant effects and inhibiting the total use of vascular invertase.
And these studies have been used in clinical trials and further show that garlic has the effects of reducing cholesterol, inhibiting platelet aggregation, reducing blood vessel pressure and increasing antioxidants.
It has been confirmed that short-term supplementation of allicin in the human body can increase the ability to resist LDL oxidation. Inhibiting LDL oxidation may be one of the mechanisms by which garlic is beneficial to cardiovascular health.
