Is Garlic Good For My Heart?

Thursday, 01 Nov 2012 09:07 AM




Question: My husband has started taking garlic capsules because he says they are good for the heart. Do you think they will do any good/harm?

Dr. Hibberd’s answer:

There is anecdotal evidence that garlic may help retard heart disease, but this has not been proven to the same degree that fish oil use has been shown to boost heart health. Garlic can affect breath and perspiration. The bottom line: Garlic pill supplement use instead of using natural garlic added to food has no proven value.
