Aged garlic seems to be effective because of an active ingredient called allicin. Allicin has many interesting effects, including anti-cancer effects and anti-hypertensive effects which makes it a great natural beta blocker.
potential benefits of allicin in aged garlic for hypertension:
• It can decrease angiotensin 2 (helps relax blood vessels and reduce hypertension)
• It can increase nitric oxide (helps reduce hypertension)
• It can decrease inflammation (helps lower blood pressure)
• It can thin the blood (reducing the risk of clotting) When it comes to aged garlic vs. fresh garlic, aged garlic may work better than fresh garlic for high blood pressure. But, if you want to try fresh garlic, be sure to crush it and wait at least 15 minutes before consuming it to release more of the allicin compound. However, aged garlic has higher amounts of allicin, phytonutrients, and antioxidants than fresh garlic.
