Garlic Supplements

Garlic—that edible bulb packed with flavor—is thought to have medicinal properties. It may help to lower blood cholesterol levels, as well as blood pressure. Some studies suggest that it may even help prevent heart disease and stroke, and perhaps lower risks of certain cancers. Garlic supplements contain varying amounts of allicin—the compound responsible for the herb's odor and likely its healthful properties. To promote heart health, see cholesterol testing and blood pressure monitors.
