Claims not verified: Raw garlic has been associated with help with high blood pressure, but not as much as medications. Tumeric has had many claims for health benefits but not large studies to verify the claims.

Do different things!: Tumeric is one of the most potent anti-oxidance by weight on the planet. Anti-oxidants have antiaging properties in animals, but no studies exist for humans. Anit-oxidants help prevent damage to dna and are anti-inflammatory. Garlic exibits some antibacterial activity, and has been shown to benefit liipid profiles.
