The prophylactic efficacy of garlic (Allium sativum Linn.) extract was studied on glycogen deposition and protein metabolism in male albino rats. The garlic extract was tested in three different doses 1ml, 2ml and 4ml/ kg body weight daily for a period of 7, 14, 21 and 28 days. The significant (P<0.01 & P<0.05) increase in Glycogen and Protein level was observed when rats were fed with low and medium dose but when rats were fed with 4ml/kg body weight of garlic extract there was significant (P<0.01) decrease in Glycogen level and a not significant increase in Protein level was observed.
