He also mentions that numerous studies suggest that aged garlic extract may help improve risk factors for heart disease, including supporting healthy blood pressure levels, keeping bad cholesterol in check, increasing a hormone that helps protect against inflammation and atherosclerosis as well as helping improve insulin sensitivity and the management of blood sugar, thinning your blood, and staving off plaque in arteries.
