Today we’re going to talk about how garlic can help support a healthy heart.

Anything in this video is not meant to diagnose or replace your medical care. Check with your doctor before implementing this.

Garlic has shown similar effects to standard blood pressure lowering medications. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what garlic can do for the heart.

Additional health benefits of garlic for the heart:
• It’s antiviral
• It’s antifungal
• It’s antibacterial
• It may help with TB and H. pylori
• It may help kill worms and parasites
• It can help lower insulin and improve insulin resistance
• It may decrease the risk of cancer
• It’s anti-inflammatory and may help with arthritis
• It can help increase endurance

A compound called thromboxane can occur in your body after injury or inflammation and can lead to serious problems with the heart. However, a few things can inhibit this compound, including blood thinners, garlic, and olive oil.

Garlic can help reduce the risk of clots. It also has natural properties that can potentially help lower blood pressure, reduce artery stiffness, and lower your calcium score.

It may also help balance lipids and cholesterol and help a person produce more bile, which then helps regulate cholesterol. It may even help with something called infective endocarditis because it’s very antimicrobial.

Garlic water is one of the best things you can drink to help support a healthy heart, and it’s simple to make. All you need to do is crush one garlic clove and stir it into 8 to 12 ounces of water. Then, mix one teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil into the water, let it sit for about 15 minutes, and drink up.

You can also add more garlic to your recipes or take a supplement.

  1. Yes, this very likely explains why my dad is the record holder for age in our family tree. Decades ago he’d read about the amazing health benefits of garlic. He starts his day with a tablespoon of crushed garlic in olive oil. And he’s avoided the health issues, like cancer and heart disease, that have plagued our family. And what’s interesting is that his diet is far from healthy. I think that speaks to the powerful health benefits of garlic.

  2. Thank you so much for this video I had a heart attack that turned into a cardiac arrest 5 years ago.t I am a living miracle I trying to learn all I can to eat well and exercise. Your channel is a real help to me!

  3. Dr Berg, this information saved me from a stroke yesterday. My blood pressure went up to 180/118. My right temple was throbbing, the top of my head hurt and my neck was stiff. I had tow cloves of garlic with an 8oz bottle of room temperature water and within an hour I could move my neck and my headache lessened. Thanks for sharing this life saving information. God bless you. I will get the olive oil too.

  4. Dr Berg I have no words for you how precious you are . May God rewards you with his countless blessings on every step of your life in this world and hereafter Amen

  5. I take 3 big cloves of garlic daily …I feel great ….and my wife told me that my Garlic breath was unbearable..and that if I continoues doing that she will leave ..so I increase my dosage to 6 cloves per day ..!!! I am counting the minutes to recover my peace alone .and be at peace forever ……amen

  6. Dr Berg, it shows in your work that you love what you do and we all benefit to one of the greatest degrees, particularly in helping and maintaining health. Thank you.

  7. Dr. Berg.. there are no words to describe how much you are appreciated to me and many others.
    The topic of garlic is always on going in my household. I have been eating at least a clove every day for about 30 years. I have always told people, it makes me feel like my blood has been cleansed.
    Definitely, is true from your explanation.. garlic does clean the blood. I didn’t really know all the ins and outs of how and what it did. I just knew it helped me. I knew it was a natural antibiotic, so I’ve raised my family with it… no antibiotics for us…
    The topic of worms for dogs. I gave my dogs garlic. They never had worms. I was screamed at for feeding a dog garlic as people said it would kill them.
    I have shared eating garlic with anyone and everyone that would listen.
    One friend stopped her insulin medication due to eating garlic. Another high blood pressure meds. and another thyroid meds (along with other changes in lifestyle )
    Love your heart, Dr. Berg. I was just sharing with someone how you “give” so much needed information to the world freely. You are a God send. ♥

    • @sexyb sexy b Hi… I have not watched the video in a while, but I am not sure he was talking of drinking garlic. I chop up a couple of real garlic cloves into small pieces. I let them set a couple minutes or so, then swallow the pieces with water most of the time. I eat garlic every day. For me… sometimes it may burn my stomach, but I deal with that one way or another. For me, it is worth it. I hope I have helped In some way.

  8. Thank you Doctor Berg for always looking out for people. Always sharing, always teaching us how to become healthier and healthy.

  9. Wow Dr. Berg! You are in the zone. Your delivery and explanations have improved greatly over the years. I love your content and appreciate your lectures. Keep of the great work!

  10. Started KETO about 4 months ago, down a little over 60 pounds so far, gall bladder still having trouble keeping up so I’ve had to trim back on extra fat but feeling better. Your meds have helped with the gallbladder and some Ashwaganha extracts have helped me get my cortisol down to reasonable levels so I can sleep properly again. Started last week doing 30+ hr fasts every start of a week to try and get some of this extra skin off. Thank you for all your vids, when I start having problems in some way with Keto you seem to already have a vid up telling me what is probably wrong and how to fix it. You’ve helped me change my life and I cannot thank you enough.

    • I had a liver problem and adopted keto diet. It restored the liver to health fairly quickly. But interestingly my kidney function eGFR was low-ish, around 55, over two years of keto, now the eGFR has slowing but steadily lifted to 82.

    • @J .C “The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is a test that measures your level of kidney function and determines your stage of kidney disease. Your healthcare team can calculate it from the results of your blood creatinine test, your age, body size, and gender.”

  11. He is just too good. The way he keeps his thumbnail clearly not creating suspense to get views tells a lot about this man. Just STRAIGHT FORWARD

  12. I started your Keto diet a week ago. I’m doing perfectly. I actually find it easy! The only thing I’m binging is your videos! I really appreciate everything you do! I am learning so much! I am 56 years old with Type 2 diabetes and obese! I weighed 250lbs before starting. My goal weight is 150lbs. This is the first time I know I will be able to do it thanks 🙏 to you Doctor and your knowledge and the way you break everything down and make it simple to do. I’m eating 2 meals a day now with the intermittent fasting. I don’t have any cravings. I’m following everything you tell me to do. It is a matter of life and death for me and also quality of life because I was feeling so sick 😷 eating carbohydrates in my diet. Thank You 🙏 so much for everything you do! It is literally changing my life❤️🙏

    • You can do it!!! You are doing great. It is amazing how we realize how crappy we felt once we start to feel better.

    • Het Frank, I did keto this winter. It really is easy, except…you might get a bout of keto flu soon, or in some weeks. Depending on how much sugar you used to eat you’ll feel exhausted and like your heart isn’t keeping up. You can alleviate this with minerals and with mct oil. In any case, after that it really is easy.

    • Well done – DR Berg is a hero of the internet if you ask me. He has helped me and I have passed the info on to my father and friends (the ones that will listen that is haha) How are you doing now Brother?

  13. Amazing content as always! Garlic has always been present in our food on a daily basis and we seldom have had cold/flu. Garlic is amazing and it’s good to learn more about its multi benefitial properties. You’re so very much appreciated for all the work you do. Thank you, Dr Berg.

    • @Dr. Eric Berg DC how do you know your garlic isn’t from China? Will grow my own when it comes again this Autumn but for now how do we know? Thank you for your talks (Garlic breath is another concern!)

    • @C K usually the garlic from China will have the roots cleaned off where the non China garlic will have some roots hanging off. You can check the package if in a package. Lastly you could try asking the seller. Chinese garlic will also be bleached.

    • @Dr. Eric Berg DC Dr. How many bulbs of garlic should be eaten a day? Or how many cloves should be eaten a day????

  14. There aren’t doctors as respectable, honest and informative as you these days, it’s such a rarity these days. I wish you the very best Dr. Berg and thank you for the amazing videos you upload!

    • Dr Berg help me understand why I am doing intermittent fasting OMAD yet my blood pressure remains high. I know I have some impending reasons; I work overnights for 3days have less exercise please help me please 🙏

    • @Evelyn Kipsang you should drop the sugar to 15 g a day including all fruits and be sure to walk and exercise and drink Hibiscus tea too plus taking garlic or garlic water .

    • im Parched Lol, Going to Do ParsLey Soup, Dried Works To, Then Eat GarLic it CanceLs….the GarLic MostLy, the Stinking Rose 🌹 Restaurant, made me Figure✔️ This 1 Out.

  15. This is very timely! I am hearing of shortages in the medical arena. Whatever we can do on our own to protect our health is vital.

  16. I’ve been eating whole garlic like an apple for 20 years now, my wife left me about 19 years ago for some reason. I’ve been single ever since. But great health!!
