In a randomised study, 210 patients who were Helicobacter pylori (HP) positive in biopsy were assigned to seven treatment groups (each group consisting of 30 patients). Group I was given standard eradication treatment (lansaprasol 30 mg bid, clarithromycin 500 mg bid, amoxicillin 1 g bid for 14 days). Group II received Ascorbic acid (AA) 1000 mg/day in addition to the standard treatment. Group III received only AA 1000 mg/day for 14 days. Group IV was treated with standard regiment plus 120 mg/day Beta-carotene (BC). Group V was given only BC 120 mg/day for 14 days. Group VI was given standard regiment and allicin 4200 micrograms/day. Group VII received only Allicin 1200 micrograms/day for 14 days. The eradication was achieved in 20 (66.6%) in Group I, 15 (50%) in Group II, 3 (10%) in Group III, 15 (50%) in Group IV, 0 (0%) in Group V, 27 (90%) in Group VI and 7 (23.3%) in Group VII. Allicin seemed to be a potentially effective agent for HP eradication but ascorbic acid and beta caroten were found to be ineffective (3).
Garlic bulb at 0.5-12 grams per day is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve the symptoms associated with upper respiratory tract infections and catarrhal conditions, used in Herbal Medicine to help reduce elevated blood lipid levels/hyperlipidaemia in adults and to help maintain cardiovascular health in adults (4). In a single-blind, placebo controlled study, lipid profiles of 150 hyperlipidemic were checked at the same conditions. They were divided into three equal groups randomly and they were given enteric-coated garlic powder tablet (equal to 400 mg garlic, 1 mg allicin) twice daily, anethum tablet (650 mg) twice daily, and placebo tablet for 6 weeks. In the garlic group, total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol decreased significantly while HDL-cholesterol increased significantly (5).
