Garlic & Cholesterol Study

Garlic has long been promoted as a cholesterol-lowering agent, and that's why it's one of the top selling supplements. New research shows patients who took garlic for their heart only saw a change in their breath!

Researchers had over 160 adults take a garlic supplement, raw garlic or a placebo pill. They found no difference in "bad" cholesterol levels in the garlic group and those taking raw garlic reported bad breath and body odor. They also found levels of "good" cholesterol, triglycerides and total cholesterol remained unchanged.

But now, experts say garlic may still be beneficial for other conditions, like arteriosclerosis, however it does not appear to have an effect on cholesterol.
