Our dietary supplement ABG10+ is formulated from an extract of black garlic, or matured garlic. Black garlic is so-named because of its charcoal color and shiny appearance. It is also referred to as matured garlic because it is obtained via a unique process in which whole bulbs of garlic are fermented.
Developed in Japan in the first decade of this century, this technique consists of leaving garlic bulbs to ferment in a warm, humid container or environment, usually at a temperature of 140 to 176º Fahrenheit and a humidity of 70% to 90%. Under these conditions, the garlic bulbs gradually transform as a result of the Maillard reaction – the slow caramelization of the cloves. Black garlic is popular today both for its distinctive flavor and its exceptional health properties.
Black garlic's organoleptic characteristics and nutritional composition distinguish it from standard raw garlic or aged garlic. Its sweet, melt-in-the-mouth flavor has made it a popular ingredient in Japanese cuisine. It also contains high levels of antioxidants, particularly S-allyl-cysteine. Indeed, the many health benefits offered by black garlic are due to the presence of this phenolic compound which has been studied extensively in recent years. S-allyl-cysteine has significant antioxidant potency and a cardio-protective effect, which is why our ABG10+ supplement has been specifically formulated to contain one of the highest concentrations of S-allyl-cysteine available in a dietary supplement.
S-allyl-cysteine has significant antioxidant potency, that helps protect cells against free radical damage and cellular aging, and as a result, plays a key role in protecting vital organs too. Its antioxidant properties and positive effect on the circulation makes S-allyl-cysteine particularly good for protecting the cardiovascular system. With studies showing it may reduce cholesterol deposits in the arteries and so improve blood flow, many scientists are convinced of black garlic's cardio-protective effect.
Since black garlic was first discovered, scientific interest has increased significantly. Researchers are particularly interested in the beneficial effects of S-allyl-cysteine in reducing blood triglycerides and cholesterol, both of which are involved in the onset of physiological problems and cardiovascular disease. Initial studies in this field are opening up, promising new perspectives for the preventive and therapeutic use of black garlic.
