    History and tradition


    • Arguably the oldest cultivated medicinal plant
    • Formerly used in the prevention of the plague and cholera, Galen baptizes it the " Theriac of the peasants " .
    • In China, in a region specializing in the cultivation of widely consumed garlic, the number of centenarians would be greater

    Plant properties


    • Multiple activities: antimicrobial, anticancer, antioxidant, immunostimulant, antidiabetic, hepatoprotective, antifibrinolytic and antiplatelet activity, prevention of cardiovascular diseases [1]
    • Anti-hypertensive [2] (action evaluated at 1 point less, both systolic and diastolic)
      • A meta-analysis of 20 trials with 970 participants (2016), showed a systolic blood pressure decrease of 5.1 ± 2.2 mm Hg and a diastolic decrease of 2.5 ± 1.6 mm Hg ( P<0.002) compared to placebo [3]
      • Efficacy on systolic and diastolic comparable to that of atenolol [4]
      • Antihypertensive effect by three modes of action: vasodilator of peripheral vessels, diuretic, inhibitor of angiotensin-I converting enzyme [5]
    • The extract is cholesterol-lowering [6] , [7] , [8] , by decreasing hepatic cholesterol biosynthesis [9] , [10] , increases HDL, fibrinolytic effect [11] , whereas garlic powder dried in tablets, standardized to 1.3% allicin at a dose of 300 mg three times a day, was not effective [12] , [13]
      • A meta-analysis including 39 studies suggests that garlic, when used for more than 2 months, is effective in reducing total cholesterol by 17 ± 6 mg/dL and low density lipoprotein cholesterol by 9 ± 6 mg/dL, in people with high total cholesterol (>200 mg/dL), with excellent tolerance, and should be used before conventional medication, in patients with low cholesterol [14]
    • Anti-atheromatous by complex action (on lipoproteins, LDL, macrophages) [15] , aged garlic extract inhibits the progression of coronary calcifications in patients receiving statins [16] , antithrombotic
    • Raw garlic supplementation shows protective effects on the aorta and liver of rats on a cholesterol-lowering diet [17]
    • Inhibitor of platelet aggregation [18] (by lipoxygenase inhibitor ajoenes ), fibrinolytic (anti-thrombotic mechanism of action of ajoenes  : penetrate the platelet membrane, and reduce the viscosity of the inner part of the lipid bilayer, interfere with the expression of the fibrinogen receptor, inhibit the formation of thromboxane A2)
    • Hepatoprotective, inhibits acetaminophen-induced toxicity [19]
    • Hypoglycemic (the activity of alliicin would be comparable to that of tolbutamide), antidiabetic [20]
    • Opposes protein glycation (possible role in preventing diabetes-related complications) [21]
    • Nephroprotective [22]
    • Neuroprotective [23] , protection against beta-myloid protein neurotoxicity and Alzheimer's disease [24]
    • Increases epididymis weight and sperm count, without exerting estrogenic or anti-estrogenic effect [25]
    • Antiarthritic [26] , antioxidant, free radical scavenger
    • Antimicrobial: proven bactericidal and fungicidal properties, intestinal antiputrid, vermifuge (anthelmintic), inhibits the bacterial biofilm of Campylobacter jejuni [27]
      • Antifungal when mixed with chicken feed ( Candida albicans , Aspergillus fumigatus , Aspergillus parasiticus ) [28] , ( cryptococcosis ) [29]
    • Immunomodulatory effects, increases the activity of macrophages, natural killer cells and the production of T and B cells, significantly reduces the number, duration and severity of upper respiratory tract infections [30]
    • Preventive of cancer promotion ( diallyl disulfide protects mice against cancer of the skin, liver, digestive tract, cervix, radioprotective), antimutagenic properties by stimulation of detoxification enzymes [31] , cancer growth inhibitor by action on polyamines [32]
    • Protective effect against various cancers, stomach, colorectal, esophagus, colon, breast, lung, the organosulfur compounds of garlic ( S-allylmercaptocysteine ​​and others) modulate the activity of various enzymes that activate cytochromes, detoxify carcinogens (glutathione S-transferases) and inhibit the formation of DNA adducts [33]
      • Protection against chemo-induced cancers, increased detoxification of carcinogens by induction of phase II enzymes [glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs), quinone reductase and epoxide hydrolase], induction of apoptosis [34]
      • Preventive of bladder cancer [35] , leukemia, breast and prostate cancer ( S-allylmercaptocysteine ) [36] induction of apoptosis in stomach cancer [37] , antiproliferative in cancer of the colon ( S-allylmercaptocysteine ) [38] , antimutagenic, tumor growth inhibition [39]
      • Prevention against intoxication by heavy metals and solvents, increases detoxification of carcinogens by inducing phase II enzymes (glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs), quinone reductase and epoxide hydrolase), induces apoptosis, stimulates the synthesis glutathione
      • Heating would inhibit these properties, the galenic preparation plays a role [40] , cancer chemoprevention agent especially by the organosulfur compounds of aged garlic, S-allylcysteine ​​and S-allylmercapto-L-cysteine ​​[41]
    • Immunomodulating and anti-inflammatory [42] , [43]


    Bud properties


    Properties of essential oil


    • Presented as an anti-infectious, anti-putrid, anti-parasitic
    • Antiplatelet agent, fibrinolytic [44]
    • Thyreostimulating (?)
    • On the other hand, the properties on hypercholesterolemia of garlic essential oil are not validated .
    • Molecular docking studies show that organosulfur compounds in garlic (especially diallyl sulfide and triallyl sulfide ) possess SARS-CoV-2 anticoronavirus activity [45]
    • Repellent against Aedes aegypti mosquitoes ( diallyl trisulfide and diallyl tetrasulfide ) [46]

      • CYP 2C9 inhibitor [54]
      • Interactions with drugs used against HIV (saquinavir, ritonavir) [55] , [56]
