Historical supplementation of garlic dates back to the beginning of human history, and was found in ancient Egyptian pyramids and Greek temples . Garlic may have a wide range of cardiovascular benefits; It may promote a healthy balance of good cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein LDL) and may help support healthy blood pressure levels. Black garlic is made by a natural fermentation process, under controlled conditions, to yield an odorless, bioactive form of that is up to 10 times more concentrated than traditional garlic. Black garlic may help regulate lipid and cholesterol metabolism, and may support healthy levels of total lipids, TG, and cholesterol[2-5]. All of our black garlic is grown and fermented in Wisconsin, USA for full traceability, quality and potency.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), ubiquinone is a powerful and natural antioxidant that is well known for its cardiovascular benefits. CoQ10 may also play an important role in cellular energy production, lipoprotein, and blood vessel function. Age and cardiovascular stress decrease natural levels of CoQ10, so supplementation is needed and may promote heart health and maintain balance. [6-7]
Vitamin K2 (as MK7, menaquinone-7)(180 ug x2)
Vitamin K2 (MK-7) may play an essential role in maintaining healthy bones and healthy blood vessels. New clinical research has found that MK-7 may support lowering the calcification (or restriction) of blood vessels, and supporting elasticity, which is a key indicator of cardiovascular health. Coupled with the already known benefits of bone health, maintaining healthy levels of MK-7 becomes essential for healthy aging and a healthy heart. [8-10]
Pantethine (200 mg X3)(noDV)
Pantethine is the active form of Vitamin B5 and clinical studies have recently shown it may have some major impacts on cardiovascular health. Similar to Vitamin B5, studies have shown that Pantethine supplemented in its active form, may help support lower levels of bad cholesterol (low-density lipoproteins, LDL). This ingredient may support the cardiovascular stress response and is possibly key to maintaining healthy levels of CoQ10[11-12].
Important to note that current research has largely overturned previous research indicating LDL levels are not significantly changed during supplementation of trans-resveratrol /grape seed extract / polyphenols.
Additional benefits of Black Garlic:
Antioxidant / Immune / Healthy aging support
Similar to benefits of fresh garlic, aged black garlic contains more concentrated levels of many antioxidants such as alliin and superoxide dismutase (SOD). Black garlic may be up to ten times more concentrated in antioxidants than fresh garlic.
Animal studies and research have shown black garlic may be able to support decreased body weight and abdominal fat weight, and may positively affect the balance of TG, HDL, and LDL levels.
Animal studies and research have shown that black garlic may support an increase in enzymes that are responsible for normal activity and metabolism in the liver.
Animal studies and research have shown to possibly decrease allergic response by helping to reduce inflammatory enzymes. A visible decrease in the allergic response of the skin may be seen.
