Abstract

A double-blind study of 40 hypercholesterolaemic out-patients was carried out over a period of four months to examine the effects of a garlic powder preparation*. The drug group received 900 mg garlic powder per day, equivalent to 2,700 mg of fresh garlic. During the therapy, the drug group showed significantly lower total cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure than those of the placebo group. In addition, results of a self-evaluation questionnaire indicated that patients in the drug group had a greater feeling of 'well-being'.
