Canadian researchers say the organic compound allicin, which gives garlic its aroma and flavor, may be the world's most powerful anti-oxidant. Study leader Derek Pratt of Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, said that through experiments with synthetically produced allicin, the researchers found that an acid produced when the compound decomposes rapidly reacts with radicals. Organisms age because cells accumulate free radical damage over time. Basically the allicin compound has to...

Study uncovers mechanism by which the herb does some damage to do some benefit The way in which garlic inflicts gastric pain may also be the way it confers cardiovascular benefits, a new study suggests. The finding, reported in this week's issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences is preliminary, however, and far from convincing for some experts.

Indeed, the same mechanism the body uses to react to the sharpness of chili peppers and hot mustards like wasabi is the one that detects garlic, according to a study in Tuesday's Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
