Garlic has been known to have many health benefits and has long been thought to help lower blood pressure naturally. In fact, garlic has been prescribed by doctors for high blood pressure. It is not a drug that you take by mouth and must be taken via an injection or vaginal suppository. Garlic supplements can lower blood pressure as well as some prescription drugs typically used to treat high blood pressure, according to an ongoing research study.
The latest findings come from a study conducted in the US by Kaiser Permanente, which found that garlic consumption was linked with a reduction in high blood pressure. It did not prove the link between consuming garlic and lowering the numbers but it does show that Garlic definitely has a health benefit associated with it. Garlic is one of those "super foods" that most people know little about and it makes sense that further research would be beneficial to consumers. As more people become aware of the health benefits associated with garlic, it will be seen more widely used in the pharmaceutical industry.
If you have ever wondered whether eating garlic can lower your high blood pressure or if it is just another fanciful idea, this is the real answer. Garlic is indeed a natural hypertension treatment through its effects on platelet levels. Ingesting the garlic has many health benefits including anti-inflammatory properties, which can also reduce the effects of inflammation on your body. There have only been a few studies conducted on the subject of hypertension and it is still unclear as to why eating lots of garlic can reduce blood pressure, but now we know for sure.
