The effects of intake of dried garlic on blood coagulation, fibrinolysis, platelet aggregation, serum cholesterol levels, and blood pressure were studied in 20 patients with hyperlipoproteinemia over a period of four weeks. Fibrinogen and fibrinopeptide A significantly decreased by 10%. Streptokinase activated plasminogen and fibrinopeptide B beta 15-42 significantly increased by about 10%. Serum cholesterol levels significantly decreased by 10%. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased. ADP and collagen induced platelet aggregation were not influenced.
