A meta-analysis of 39 separate trials involving 2300 people provided the most comprehensive analysis of the effect of garlic on cholesterol to date.

The study, published in the journal Nutrition Reviews, reported that participants with slightly elevated cholesterol levels reduced their totals by an average of 8%. It has been found that 70% of cholesterol is manufactured in the liver and garlic inhibits this effect. However a

healthy diet is important too with plenty of vegetables, quality proteins from fish or free range or organic meats and good fats from olives, avocados, nuts and seeds. Foods to avoid are processed carbohydrates (white flour and sugars) and bad fats such as those in fried and processed foods.
