I know of no-: -literature that supports that claim. Certainly would cause no harm to try it.

It's possible!: If you ask most allopathic physicians, the answers will be no. I am an allopath too, but, being a japanese and possibly biased, i must say garlic in general with its compound called allicin does have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibiotic, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties. Garlic in my opinion is underrated. It can possibly help with symptoms of arthritis.
