garlic reduces inflammation

Modern research is increasingly identifying inflammation as an important contributor to several psychological and physical diseases. One of the reasons why garlic is such a valuable and versatile herb may turn out to be that it has the power to turn down inflammation.

A new systematic review and meta-analysis of 17 controlled studies has demonstrated that supplementing garlic significantly reduces C-reactive protein, an important marker of inflammation. Supplementing aged garlic extract significantly reduced C-reactive protein but was also able to significantly reduce Tumor necrosis factor-α, another important inflammatory marker, especially for autoimmune diseases.
