Garlic is a miracle food when it comes to weight loss. Garlic is an appetite suppressant. The strong odor of garlic stimulates the satiety center in the brain, thereby reducing feelings of hunger. Specifically, garlic reduces appetite by increasing the brain’s sensitivity to leptin, a hormone produced by fat cells to regulate appetite. Garlic causes the release of norepinephrine, a stimulant neurotransmitter that increases metabolism.
Researchers fed mice a fattening diet for eight week to plump them up, then served them the same diet supplemented with 2 percent or 5 percent garlic for another seven weeks. The addition of garlic reduced the mice’s body weights and fat stores, and lessoned the effects of the unhealthy diet on the animals’ blood and liver values.
