The aim of this study is to access the antihypertensive
potential of garlic juice in rats. To achieve this, 30 Wistar rats
were divided into three groups of 10 each. Rats in groups 1 and 2
received aspecial prepared egg feed diet (24 egg yolkmixed with 1
kg of normal rat diet) while those in group 3 received normal
feed diet and they served as the control group. Animals in group
2 were administered 3 mL/100g body weight of undiluted garlic
juice simultaneously with the feeding. The animals were fed
orally for 21consecutive days and had access to drinking water
ad libitum. Blood pressureof each of these groups wasdetermined
at day 0, 7, 14 and 21 respectively using standard methods. A
significant increase was observed in the blood pressure of
animals fed with egg formulated diet without garlic juice
treatment when compared with those fed with egg formulated
diet and treated with garlic juice and control group respectively
at P<0.05. However, this effect was not significant when animals
fed with egg formulated diet and treated with garlic juice were
compared with those in the control group. Results from this
study showed that egg yolk causes high blood pressure in animals
but the effect was ameliorated by garlic juice administration,
thus garlic possesses antihypertensive potential.
