These conditions include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary heart disease,heart attack, and “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis). Some of these uses are supported by science. Garlic actually may be effective in slowing the development ofatherosclerosis and seems to be able to modestly reduce blood pressure.
