Garlic - Studies Show Helpful in Preventing Blood Clots

Studies and research reports show that odorless Garlic Powder/Garlic Oil demonstrates antithrombotic activities. An antithrombotic agent is a substance that reduces blood clot formation.

In human studies, a positive response to garlic has been observed. Bordia (1978) first showed the dose-dependent inhibition of platelet aggregation by garlic. Raw garlic, garlic oil and other extracts of garlic have been shown to inhibit platelet aggregation invitro induced by ADP, collagen, arachidonate, epinephrine and calcium ionophore.

Chronic intake of Garlic Powder/Garlic Oil also inhibits platelet aggregation. Single-dose of garlic has also been shown to inhibit platelet aggregation. Get garlic into your diet and take garlic supplements .

There are two major parts to the blood clotting system: Fibrin and Platelet. Garlic can impact them both. Eating garlic, especially when raw is part of a healthy Paleo diet. Some benefits of garlic are lost when it is cooked, but the clot-buster benefit remains. Supplements are another excellent way to harness the power of garlic.

The American Academy of Family Physicians recommend that people stop taking high doses of garlic 7 to 10 days before a planned surgery because of its antithrombotic properties.

Garlic's use dates back thousands of years as both a traditional medicine and a seasoning. Traditionally, garlic has been an integral part of the Mediterranean diet and many Asian cuisines.

Garlic supplements are marketed to lower cholesterol, as well as fight cancer, hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and infections, including the common cold.*

Lab and animal studies suggest that garlic (or compounds from it) has a range of benefits. For example, it keeps blood platelets from sticking together, which reduces the risk of blood clots, and may have anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-lowering effects.*
