What are the health benefits of garlic?

Garlic, which is closely related to onions, scallions, leeks, chives, and shallots, is loved for its distinctive and pungent flavor, but this plant doesn’t just taste good. It’s also good for our health. 

It’s rich in nutrients, for example, vitamin B6, vitamin C, selenium, fiber, and manganese, and it may even have antiviral properties, which could help to bolster the immune system. As well as vitamins and minerals, garlic also contains antioxidants, which are plant compounds that may help to tackle oxidative damage (which contributes to a higher risk of chronic disease) in the body. 

There is also some research to suggest that garlic may help lower blood pressure and LDL cholesterol and improve bone health. That said, people with IBS may need to be careful with garlic, as it is considered a high FODMAP food and may exacerbate symptoms in some sufferers.
