Abstract: This investigation was designed to determine the effect of garlic juice on liver function of layers for 15 days. Blood samples were collected from 10 animals via jugular vein before garlic juice administration to check (total bilirubin, total protein, total cholesterol, glucose, GOT and GPT enzymes because it act as liver function parameters). Animals received garlic juice in dose (0.02ml/day) for 15 days and blood samples were collected to check same parameters which mentioned above and comprised with before administration. This study revealed significant decrease in total bilirubin and total protein on the other hand significant increase in glucose, cholesterol and GOT beside un significant increase in GPT as compare to before administration. These results can be interpreted that garlic juice lead to increase liver excretory through decrease its serum concentration in addition increase egg quality through decrease serum total protein and increase serum total cholesterol (i. e egg contain less cholesterol and high protein). On the other hand garlic juice lead to mild liver destruction through increase in GPT enzyme due to excessive biochemical process like lipolysis, gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis which revealed by increase in glucose and cholesterol concentration.
