Immune Boosting Fermented Black Garlic
Since discovering ONYX Black Fermented Garlic, a day doesn’t go by that we don’t enjoy it cooking or as a snack.
Revered as a Superfood in Asia for millennia, ONYX Black Fermented Garlic has a versatile Umami flavor, best described as being slightly sweet with a savory undertone and rich deliciousness! It adds an undeniable depth of flavor to nearly every dish with the bonus of enhanced nutritional value, such as the ability to decrease pathogens, inflammatory conditions, insulin resistance, cancer risk, and heart health issue risk. Additionally, black garlic strengthens the immune system and is rich in bioavailable nutrients and phytonutrients!
ONYX Black Fermented Garlic begins as raw garlic that is carefully aged for four weeks using a scientifically controlled process combining low heat and a specific level of humidity. This self-fermentation process creates a natural enzymatic caramelization effect transforming the garlic into its signature black color, bringing out its natural sweetness. In addition, the self-fermentation process enhances the bioavailability of garlic’s naturally-occurring health benefits while being gentle on the stomach, accentuates its natural sweetness with savory tones, creates a pleasing prune-like texture thus often referred to as the “Gummy Bear of Garlic” and dramatically reduces its odor, making it nearly odorless.
One compound of import is s-allyl-cysteine or SAC; black garlic contains 5.84mg of SAC as opposed to raw garlic 0.32mg content. This compound is more stable than allicin, is easily absorbed by the body and helps reduce cholesterol synthesis making it extremely heart-healthy. It is easy to see why ONYX Fermented Black Garlic is considered a Superfood!
Important to note that research shows Black garlic to contain more sulfur compounds than regular garlic, which is the source of its high antioxidant content.
“I have been in the health food business for many years because disease prevention is a very important element of my philosophy.” According to Founder and CEO Elke Heitmeyer. “When I encountered Black Garlic, I realized how important it could be for people’s health and was inspired to launch my ONYX Black Garlic brand. Since increasing the amount of Black Garlic I eat every day, I have lowered my own high blood pressure back to normal levels,” Elke continued, “and strengthened my immune system, which keeps me healthy in spite of my extensive travel schedule.”
