The Healing Power of Black Garlic’s SAC

Many know of garlic’s vast and practically supernatural health benefits, but most people aren’t aware of the super powers of black garlic, which far exceed that of regular garlic. Although the benefits of Allicin are not to be ignored, the current research on S-Allyl cysteine (SAC) demands attention. The aging process aids in stabilizing and boosting the compounds in garlic. The SAC in black garlic, for example, is more than quadruple that of raw garlic. Moreover, SAC not only helps the body absorb Allicin, but is itself absorbed more easily.

Healthy Blood Sugar Balance


Scientific research on garlic and SAC in particular indicate it could support healthy blood sugar balance. A 2009 study, sites increased balance when black garlic was incorporated into the diet. (Seo et al., 2009)

Cell Renewal


Research also indicates that SAC assists in optimal cell regeneration. In one study, SAC was seen to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. According to an article in Biochemical Pharmacology, SAC, along with a list of other elements found in fruits and vegetables, supported healthy cell renewal.



Reports demonstrate that the antioxidant activity of black garlic is very high, with the TEAC (Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity) value over four times that of raw garlic. Antioxidants are crucial to maintaining good health. They combat the damaging effects of free radicals, which occur naturally in the body.

Improves Blood Circulation & Supports Heart Health


A recent study performed by a lead researcher at LA Biomed, Matthew J. Budoff MD, indicated that black garlic has the capacity to support heart health. (Budoff, 2016).

With zero known side effects, black garlic has been used in trials as a safe support for blood circulation. (K Ried, 2012).
