Many studies have shown beneficial effects of garlic, which include hypocholesterolemic,6 hypoglycemic,7 anticancer8 and antioxidant effects.9 The extracts of garlic contain various biologically active compounds such as alliin, allicin, ally methanethiosulfinate, ajoene, diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulfide, and S-allyl cysteine.10 The hepato-protective effects of garlic extract have been observed in acetaminophen11 and a carbon tetrachloride-induced acute liver injury.12 However, mechanisms underlying the protective effects of garlic in NAFLD are required to be identified.
