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 brains sensitivity to leptin, a hormone produced by fat cells to regulate appetite. Garlic causes the release of norepinephrine, a stimulant neurotransmitter that increases metabolism.
A team of doctors at Israels Tel Hashomer Hospital found that when rats were given allicin and then fed a high-sugar diet, they had lower blood pressure and insulin levels and weight gain than rats not given allicin.
