Myth or Fact: Garlic for health
Myth: Garlic ear drops aren't sterile and shouldn't be used in patients with ear pain or infection. People with ear tubes or perforated ear drums are at even higher risk. For those with otitis media (middle ear) infection, ear drops don't make sense. Garlic oil doesn't get through the ear drum to the site of the infection. Oral pain killers (acetaminophen, ibuprofen etc) for pain work better, and consult your doctor if pain doesn't resolve within 72 hours.
Myth: Garlic does not lower your cholesterol or lipids. Current evidence argues strongly against any clinically meaningful effect. Alternative methods of cholesterol reduction should be considered. But it is effective in giving you a bad breath.
Fact: Garlic supplements appear to modestly lower blood pressure in hypertensive patients, at doses between 600 mg and 900 mg of garlic powder daily. Patients who want to try a garlic supplement should look for a product that provides 4 mg to 5 mg of allicin (it isan organosulfur compound obtained from garlic) per day. Although garlic is a natural product, it might cause interactions with other drugs they're taking, like HIV meds, oral contraceptives, and warfarin. Please do not switch over to Garlic without consulting your doctor and is of utmost importance that you let your doctor know that you are taking garlic or any other supplements.
