Garlic has been, for long, known for its health benefits such as prevention of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes etc.  In fact,  Garlic’s most common uses as a dietary supplement are for high cholesterol, heart disease, and high blood pressure.  Garlic is also used to prevent certain types of cancer, including stomach and colon cancers. 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.

Garlic cloves can be eaten raw or cooked. They may also be dried or powdered and used in tablets and capsules. Raw garlic cloves can be used to make oils and liquid extracts.

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.
