Abstract

Singh and Chaturvedi (1971 & 2015) reported that garlic (Allium sativum) possesses significant short term anti-coagulant and thrombolytic actions. Single clove garlic known as Eka-putia Lashuna (Allium ascalonicum) is considered better than garlic (Allium sativum), therefore this experimental study was carried out to evaluate the efficacy of single clove garlic on the risk factors of coronary heart disease. For this purpose alcoholic extract of single clove garlic was administered orally to a group of albino rabbits for two weeks. The results of this study showed that single clove garlic possesses significant long term anti-coagulant and thrombolytic actions as well hypo-cholesterolemic property.    

Key Word: Single clove garlic, Allium ascalonicum, Anticoagulant, Fibrinolytic, hypocholesterolemic
