At the University of Alabama in Birmingham, England researchers have uncovered the mystery of why garlic is good for the heart. The key seems to be a compound called Allicin that, besides causing foul smalling breath, also reacts with red blood cells and creates hydrogen sulphide. Hydrogen Sulphide relaxes the blood vessels and allows the blood to flow more freely. Hydrogen Sulphide smells of rotten eggs and is used to make stink bombs. In low doses it helps to allow the cells to communicate with each other and reacts with the cells on the blood vessel inner lining causing them to dialate or expand and relax. This in turn reduces blood pressure. The study also warned that garlic substitutes cause side effects by reacting with some blood thinning drugs and increase the chance of bleeding.
