Garlic supplementation appears to reduce some inflammatory biomarkers

In April 2019 researchers from Iran published their review of the medical scientific literature to assess the effect of garlic supplementation on inflammatory biomarkers in adults. A total of 16 studies were included in the review. The garlic dose ranged from 12 to 3600 mg/d, and the length of time the supplementation was taken ranged between 2-52 weeks, Results showed that garlic supplementation appeared to significantly reduce levels of C-reactive protein, Tumor Necrosis Factor, and Interleukin-6 but had no significant effect on adiponectin and leptin.
