Garlic is said to have anti inflammatory property so it would be helpful in the case of RA however that being said The amount of inflammation that often accompanies RA far outstrips the capability of garlic to deal with it. A word of warning, If you are able one way or another to stop the inflammation that is caused in RA by all means use it. however The inflammation in joints that RA causes destroys the joints and surrounding tissue this can be controlled with mainstream medicines. if it is not controlled the damage can not be undone, so you only get one shot at getting it right.
