Fermented Black Garlic can potentially help to:

  • Maintain blood pressure levels already in the normal range
  • Contributes to the normal function of the immune system
  • Maintain cholesterol levels already in the normal range

With Dr. Mercola's Fermented Black Garlic, you're ensured that there will be a minimum of 1.2 milligrams (mg) of nutrients in each recommended serving.

These are powerful benefits that can support your overall vitality. The vast majority of black garlic supplements fail to list the level of nutrients in their supplement facts.

With Fermented Black Garlic, you'll know how much is in every serving.


Fermented Garlic Bulb powder, Fermented Garlic Bulb extract, Capsules (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose), Organic rice hull.

Suggested Use

Adults, as a dietary supplement take two (2) capsules daily with a meal. 


Additional Info

Over 250 million pounds of garlic are consumed annually in the US. And it's very popular in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean countries, as well as India and China.

Raw garlic by itself has many potential health benefits because it contains:

  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Phosphorus
  • Selenium
  • Vitamins B6 and C

But when garlic is aged and fermented into black garlic, it not only has a very sweet and inviting taste, additional nutrients are created and others enhanced. One highly-beneficial nutrient in particular,is created from the fermentation process.

This is the key to reaping the potential benefits of black garlic. Without it, or with reduced amounts, you won't receive the optimal benefits.

Raw Garlic vs. Black Garlic – An Eye-Opening Comparison

During the raw garlic fermentation process many astonishing things take place.

Here's a chart showing one example of the possible fermentation outcome on essential amino acids found in garlic. Essential amino acids are those building blocks of protein not produced by your body that must be consumed as part of your diet.

Essential Amino Acids Raw Garlic

(per 100g) Black Garlic

(per 100g*)

Isoleucine217 mg371 mg
Leucine308 mg779 mg
Lysine273 mg385 mg
Methionine76 mg210 mg
Histidine113 mg287 mg
Phenylalanine183 mg461 mg
Tryptophan66 mg102 mg
Valine291 mg610 mg

*Dr. Mercola's Fermented Black Garlic contains 800 mg of black garlic

This is just an example of what potentially happens to the essential amino acids in raw garlic during the fermentation process. Results obviously can vary depending on the quality of the raw garlic and the fermentation process itself.

One of the most eye-opening points about black garlic is how new nutrients are created and others are enhanced by the fermentation process. Black garlic is packed with high concentrations of highly beneficial sulphur compounds, especially one in particular: S-allyl-cysteine (SAC).

Black Garlic Benefits Unveiled

What's interesting about SAC is how it's the result of a biological conversion that takes place during garlic fermentation. Even though most of the allicin is destroyed during the process, it is actually biologically converted to SAC.

The bottom line with SAC is that it:

  • Provides better stability than allicin
  • Absorbs well
  • Delivers enhanced antioxidant effects compared to the same amount of allicin

More than Doubles the Antioxidant Power

The fermentation of raw garlic has been shown to improve antioxidant potency. This process that results in black garlic has oftentimes doubled or more, the oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC) value of the raw garlic. The ORAC is a way of measuring and comparing the estimated potency of an antioxidant.

The most prevalent antioxidant found in black garlic is SAC.

A comprehensive review of SAC and black garlic (in both in-vivo and in-vitro scenarios) reports its antioxidant effect is a result of multiple complex mechanisms because it:

  • Scavenges free radicals – Including superoxide, hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl, peroxynitrite radicals, as well as hypochlorous acid and singlet oxygen
  • Induces the activity of endogenous antioxidant enzymes – Such as glutathione peroxidase, NAD (P) H: quinone oxidoreductase, and superoxide dismutase (SOD)
  • Chelates iron and copper ions and inhibits prooxidant enzymes – Such as nitric oxide synthase (NOS), xanthine oxidase, NADPH oxidase, and cycloxygenase (COX)

In a nutshell, these complex processes demonstrate how potent black garlic's antioxidant capability can be.
