How is garlic oil used?

Medicine does not consider garlic and garlic products as medications. The fact that garlic is not considered a medicinal plant is also disconcerting.

However, some private companies manufacture garlic products: extracts; Tinuras

All these products are not considered medicinal, they are called dietary supplements.

One of these products is the capsules of solgar garlic oil. They are not cheap. More than 1000 p. per container (250 capsules). The container is designed for 2 times a day, 1 capsule.

The main ingredient is equivalent to 0. 5 grams of garlic. If 1 g of spicy vegetables is consumed per day, the result is identical. But there are no unpleasant effects after taking the capsules, such as there are after eating raw garlic.

In the instructions for the use of garlic oil, the manufacturer affirms that Solgar is a preventive agent against hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke because it cleanses brain vessels. The efficacy of your product is veiled by the manufacturer, which writes about the difference between a stroke and a hemorrhagic stroke.

But no clinical studies or studies have been carried out, so the effectiveness affirmed by the manufacturer is questionable.

Before being treated with a pharmacy garlic oil or prepared at home, it is advisable to consult the doctor.

  1. It is not scientifically demonstrated that the daily use of garlic reduces the risk of stroke or myocardial infarctions.
  2. There is no scientific evidence of the effect of constant consumption of garlic on the development of atherosclerosis. Although garlic and garlic products can reduce bad cholesterol, its effectiveness is so low that it is irresponsible, at least, to talk about its ability to inhibit the development of atherosclerosis.
  3. If cholesterol deposits on the arterial walls are old, cannot be removed only with garlic oil. Not surprisingly, in the serious forms of ischemia, doctors resort to Bypass surgery or to the placement of stents instead of prescribing a garlic treatment and garlic products.
