It’s a powerful antioxidant (17 fold more compared to raw white garlic). During fermentation, the alliin present in fresh garlic is transformed in a stable compound that has greater antioxidant potency.

It has anti-proliferative activity on tumor cells. Black garlic was able to trigger cytotoxic pathways on transformed cells in vitro reducing the total tumor mass.

It has anti-obesity activity. The daily intake of black garlic was associated to reduction of body weight, abdominal fat and bad cholesterol in rats and mice.

It’s hepatoprotective. It favors good liver health and reduces transaminase levels and hepatotoxic compounds in rats and mice.

It has immunomodulatory and antinflammatory activity. Black garlic inhibits the synthesis of pro-inflammatory molecules such as cyclooxygenases and prostaglandins.

It has antiallergic properties.

It helps managing dyslipidemia. It improves lipid profile by increasing levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL, “good cholesterol”)

Improves memory and brain functions.
