Fermented black garlic by Dr. Mercola
Dr. Mercola’s fermented black garlic contains a whopping 800 mg of fermented black garlic with S-allyl cysteine. Garlic enjoys a number of health claims awaiting approval by the European Commission, including contributions to the proper functioning of the liver, heart and blood vessels, the immune system and overall metabolism. The difference between white and black -- fermented -- garlic is absorbability. White garlic mainly contains allicin, which is more unstable and only dissolves in fat. Black garlic contains S-allyl cysteine, which dissolves in water and is therefore easily absorbed by the body.

4,000 years strong
Garlic belongs to the allium family, which also includes onions, leeks, chives and shallots. It is neither an herb nor a vegetable. Garlic has been used as a flavoring agent and for all kinds of other properties well over 4,000 years. Greek and Roman athletes used it prior to sporting events, for example.
Phyto-chemicals, antioxidants and S-allyl cysteine
Garlic contains many active substances, also known as phyto-chemicals. Most substances contain an active sulfur compound. Due to the fermentation process, fermented garlic contains more antioxidants than does white, raw garlic. Raw garlic on its own has many beneficial effects; fermented black garlic adds a little extra. It contains magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, selenium, vitamin B6 and vitamin C.
When the garlic is ripened and fermented into black garlic, it not only takes on a very sweet and inviting taste, but also creates additional nutrients and enhances other nutrients. A very beneficial nutrient created by the fermentation process is the beneficial sulfur compound S-allyl cysteine (SAC). SAC is key to getting the most out of black garlic's effects. This product is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 1.2 mg of S-allyl cysteine (SAC) in every dose.
More amino acids through fermentation
During the fermentation process of raw garlic, many amazing transformations take place. One example is the content of amino acids. Dr. Mercola has documented that through fermentation the levels of essential amino acids such as isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, histidine, phenylalanine, tryptophan and valine, increase by 50% to well over 250%. Essential amino acids are the building blocks of proteins that are not produced by the human body and that, in other words, we must acquire through food.
A unique production process
Dr. Mercola’s fermented black garlic is manufactured following a unique production process. The product is, as it were, doubly fermented with the help of enzymes and microbial incubation. Intrinsic bacteria on the garlic are expertly used in this dual fermentation process. The unique, gentle drying process ensures a stable end product and a shelf life of two years. It also ensures maintenance of consistent ingredients, including a stable content of the all-important S-allyl cysteine.
Innovative production processes ensure the stable quality of the content of each product. Through high-quality controls and certifications, Dr. Mercola guarantees end product excellence. Consider, for example, internal micro tests and an ORAC analysis, analytical tests, product stability and shelf life tests, certifications including Star-K Kosher (Jewish), Halal (Islam), HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point), and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) guidelines. Finally, all cultivation, processing and packaging takes place in North America. All for a truly superior quality product!
The benefits of fermentation
Dr. Mercola has extensive experience working with fermented ingredients. Fermentation optimizes the benefits of a plant substance and changes its nutritional value. For example, fermentation helps to pre-convert ingredients, increase certain nutrients, improve the bio-accessibility of minerals, increase the bioavailability of antioxidants and to create unique metabolites. As a result, this fermented black garlic formula is one of Dr. Mercola’s most effective products.
