Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer in the world. Hypertension or high blood pressure is one of the most important risk factors of these diseases. The findings of a 2005 study showed that garlic supplementation was able to reduce blood pressure and counteract dangerous oxidative stress, and thereby, lowering the risk of hypertension. LDL cholesterol, the “bad” type has been shown to reliably be reduced by garlic supplements by about 10-15%. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16335787, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8169881
