TRADITIONAL USE OF ITS COMPONENTS: Garlic has diaphoretic, expectorant, antispasmodic, antiseptic, antimicrobial, hypotensive and anthelmintic properties and is a promoter of leukocytosis. Traditionally it has been used in the treatment of chronic bronchitis, colds, bronchial asthma and flu. It has also been used to treat aerophagia, dyspepsia, abdominal spasms and amenorrhea. However, the current use of garlic and its preparations focuses on its antihypertensive, antiatherogenic, antithrombotic, antimicrobial, fibrinolytic, cancer preventive and lipid-lowering action. Thus, for example, the German Commission E indicates its use in hyperlipidemia, arteriosclerosis, arterial hypertension and in the prevention of age-related vascular problems.
CONTRAINDICATIONS: Although at the recommended dose have not been evaluated, it should be used with caution in case of coagulation disorders because it may promote bleeding. Some studies have shown that garlic consumption by nursing mothers alters the odor of their milk and the behavior of infants.
