    Garlic is touted by many online sources as having multiple medicinal properties, and there is evidence to suggest that garlic contains powerful antioxidents. 

    That said, take whatever food-related medical advice you see online with a grain of salt if it’s not supported by solid scientific data.  The second link below is just one sort of site you should be wary of: ones that say garlic can be used to cure or prevent a disease.  The one cited says that garlic may be used to prevent herpes. Would you bet your sexual health on that?  If you wish to use garlic than anything more than a delicious food item that may also have additional health benefits, consult your physician first!
