To achieve such results, the researchers studied 55 patients between 40 and 75 years old, with hypertension, obesity or cardiovascular risk.
They measured their volume of fat and calcium in the arteries through coronary angioplasty.
Then, for one year, half of them were given 2.4 mg of aged garlic extract each day, while the other half were given a daily placebo.

The total plaque accumulation of the group that ingested the garlic extract slowed by 80%. It even regressed and its density was reduced.
