Garlic for Weight Loss – from Weight Loss Management News
“Garlic has been, for long, known for its health benefits such as prevention of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes etc. Now, researchers say that garlic may help in weight loss. Garlic contains the compound allicin, which is supposed to suppress the appetite and aid in weight loss.
How does Garlic help in Weight Loss:
Garlic acts as an appetite suppressant as it gives the brain signals of satiety when it is eaten. Hence, a person would be less inclined to eat. Garlic also increases the body’s metabolism. Garlic is supposed to stimulate the nervous system to release the adrenalin hormone – thereby increasing the metabolism. High metabolism can in turn help you to burn calories and lose weight.
Research shows that garlic for weight loss works.
Researchers from Weizmann Institute in Israel conducted an experiment to see if garlic can help in reducing hypertension and diabetes. They gave one group of rats allicin (garlic compound). The researchers found out that the rats given the garlic compound did not gain weight, while the rats in the other group gained weight.
Since garlic helps in weight loss, you can use it in your cooking or you can also use it on salads. Eating garlic bread and other garlic products can also be helpful for losing weight.”
