Garlis works amazing when it comes to losing weight naturally. It is considered as great appetite suppressant. Strong garlic scent stimulates the satiety center in your brain, and thus reduces the feeling of hunger.
To be more precise, garlic reduces your appetite by increasing your brain’s sensitivity to leptin. This hormone is produced by fatty cells to regulate appetite.
Garlic stimulates the production of norepinephrine, a stimulat neurotransmitter that boosts metabolism.
A group of doctors at the Tel Hashomer Hospital in Israel conducted a research based on this issue. They divided the rats in two groups.
The first group received allicin, and the second did not. All rats were then fed with high-sugar foods. The rats in the first group showed low blood pressure and insulin level, and less weight gain, which was not the case with the second group of rats.
