Garlic is known to be one of the oldest cultivated crops; it has been grown since Neolithic times. In fact, garlic was used and revered for its life-giving properties throughout ancient China, Japan, Egypt, Greece, and the Middle East. It’s fitting that garlic, an herb with such an extensive and distinguished history, is associated with bestowing long life to those who consume it regularly. Dr. L. Svendsen and colleagues at the Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University, Denmark, conducted a study in 1994 to assess the anti-aging capability of garlic. Their experiment used several laboratory dishes of human skin cells to which they added various amounts of garlic extract. The skin cells were allowed to reproduce while the scientist’s monitored their health and life span. According to Dr. Svendsen’s article in the Journal of Ethnopharm Acology, the cells supplemented with garlic were healthier and lived much longer than the non-supplemented cells.
