Garlic has many healing properties, but the most research has been done on its potential to help reduce heart disease. Garlic has been intensively studied, and numerous large studies have shown to lower cholesterol by blocking the liver from making too much LDL cholesterol. There is also evidence that garlic prevents blood clots -- and therefore reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke -- by decreasing the stickiness of platelets.
