Garlic is considered a potential supplementary treatment in arthritis due to its anti-inflammatory effects. It can help to decrease the symptoms of arthritis, including pain and swelling.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, a compound in garlic called diallyl disulphide limits the effects of pro-inflammatory cytokines. So, garlic can help in fighting inflammation and preventing cartilage caused due to arthritis.

As per Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for Arthritis and Related Inflammatory Diseases (Second Edition), 2019, reports say that garlic is one of the most effective natural medicines for arthritis. Studies have been done to find the effect of these sulphur compounds as inflammatory compounds. Also, “their role in the signalling pathways of arthritis” has also been studied. To utilise the potential of garlic for the treatment of arthritis, advanced research like incorporation of nanotechnology and biotechnology can be also done.
