How might black garlic be healthy as well as taste great? The recognition of the health benefits of black garlic is growing. Remember we make no specific health claims for black garlic and supply this information for interest only!
In one study, sixty volunteers were either given black garlic or a placebo twice a day for 12 weeks. The researchers found that the group taking black garlic saw a significant increase in high-density lipoproteins (“good” cholesterol) potentially reducing a significant cardiovascular disease risk factor (1). So how much did they eat? Those eating black garlic ate 6 grams per day - this is a very achievable one average clove per day. We have customers who buy 100g tubs of unpeeled cloves regularly and eat one clove each morning - remember the no garlic breath promise means you can have black garlic for breakfast.
Rat studies have shown black garlic administration was associated with lower lipoprotein levels, cholesterol and triglycerides and lower weight gain (in rats given a high fat diet) (2).
Black garlic provides powerful antioxidants that improve arterial elasticity and lower blood pressure, as well as improving cholesterol balance. This makes black garlic a popular natural strategy for managing healthy blood pressure (3).
These studies support the role of black garlic as a "functional food". This is a food substance that has a positive health benefit. Cardiovascular risk factors are common among the community and here is a tasty well tolerated food to help boost your health.

Thanks to Diana and team at the Atherton Supa IGA for ranging our black garlic offerings. Not only can you get great beef from the Atherton ranges but beautiful black garlic to spread on the steak as it comes off the barbecue.
