Kyle J. Norton, Master of Nutrients

Whole food(herbal medicine), linking health benefits in the prevention, management, and treatment of diseases has placed an important role in human history over many centuries. The finding of whole food medication by renowned scientists all over the world to replace the single ingredient of Western medicine with little or no side effect has been difficult due to no commercial benefit and patent right to producers.

Cardiovascular diseases refer to heart diseases, affecting millions of people in the world. According to statistic, over 17.7 million people died from CVDs in 2015, Hyperlipidaemia and hypertension are the risk factors of the diseases.

There are many causes of heart disease. Anything that serves to damage the inner lining of blood vessels and impedes the transportation of oxygen and nutrition to the heart can be defined as a risk of heart disease. Here are some early indication of heart disease symptoms:
Garlic (Allium sativum) is a species in the onion genus, belonging to family Amaryllidaceae, native to central Asia. It has been used popularly in traditional and Chinese medicine in treating common cold and flu to the Plague, blood pressure cholesterol levels, natural antibiotic, etc.

A recent study suggested that garlic may be used for the prevention and treatment of heart disease.

According to the Nihon University, organosulfur compounds found in garlic induce the functions of our body in attenuating the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Dr. Kulczyński B, the lead author insisted that the effectiveness of garlic for prevention and treatment of heart diseases probably is the result of the whole herb in demonstration of their antioxidant, chemopreventive, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties.

Other researchers suggested the role of garlic in alleviating the risks of the metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular complications is due to its modulatory effects on hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia and oxidative stress.

Garlic also has the potential to treat mild hypertension, decrease hypercholesterolemia, and prevent atherosclerosis, according to the joint study lead by the Jordan University of Science and Technologe,

Dr. Alali FQ, the lead author of the study also said, " Garlic (Allium sativum L.), a top-selling herbal dietary supplement, is renowned for its wide range beneficial effects, particularly in the treatment and prevention of CVD".

In fact, data published after the year 2000 convincingly pointed out that garlic reduces cardiovascular risk substantially, through inhibition of abnormal plasma lipids, oxidized low-density lipoproteins (LDL), abnormal platelet aggregation and a high blood pressure.

Adding garlic into one diet may reduce the risk of the diseases if accompanied with the intake of more vegetables, fruits, and change of lifestyle.
