Garlic is also rich in selenium,repparttar cancer-fighting mineral, and in sulfur, which supportsrepparttar 150728 detoxification process. Several studies have shown that carcinogenic chemicals are detoxified more efficiently throughoutrepparttar 150729 body when garlic is added torepparttar 150730 mix. It also helps controlrepparttar 150731 production of free radicals, which have been strongly implicated as a cause of cancer.

Can Garlic Prevent "Senior Moments?"

One interesting study inrepparttar 150732 journal Experimental Gerontology describedrepparttar 150733 effects of garlic extract on learning and memory impairment in aging mice. Mice specially bred to age more rapidly than their normal counterparts were used.

About half ofrepparttar 150734 mice were fed a 2 percent garlic diet for eight to nine months. It was found thatrepparttar 150735 garlic-supplemented mice better retained their ability to learn and remember than their counterparts who didn't consume garlic. I believe that everyone can benefit from adding garlic to their diets. Cook with it whenever you can. Fresh and powdered are both beneficial. I also recommend you take supplemental garlic. The aged garlic extracts, containing at least 0.6 percent allium, have beenrepparttar 150736 most thoroughly studied.
