This blog is rather technical. It lists the properties of black garlic.
> 18 essential amino acids. Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Cystine
Phenylalanine, Tyrosine, L-hydroxybutyrate, Tryptophan, Serine, Proline, Glycine
Glutamine, Aspargine, Alanine, Arginine, Histidine, Valine.

> Prostaglandins E1 This series of prostaglandins relax blood vessels, improve circulation,
lower blood pressure, decrease inflammation, improve nerve function, regulate calcium
metabolism, improve T-cell function, may be beneficial for some patients with erectile
dysfunction and lastly, prevent the release of something called “arachidonic acid” from
cells. Arachidonic acid, or AA, is what Series 2 prostaglandins, or the “bad”
prostaglandins, are made from.
> Fructan, Fructans are polymers of fructose and are naturally produced by 15%
of flowering plant species and consist of inulin and other selected vegetable fibers.
They are known to strengthen the immune system support a healthy circulatory (blood)
system in that they lower total cholesterol in the blood, lower low-density lipoproteins
(LDL), and lower triglycerides, while raising high-density lipoproteins (HDL). Research has
shown shrinkage of cancerous tumors, and blood diseases.
Fructans have established their efficacy in decreasing cancers of the colon. They do not
require insulin for digestion and therefore do not produce an energy depression before or
after digestion as sucrose and glucose. Hyperglycemia inhibitor when taken to replace the
natural conventional sugars due to the absence of blood-glucose spikes, and have sixty-two
and one-half percent (62.5%) fewer calories than other carbohydrates such as starches,
fructose, glucose, and sucrose.
Fermentation by the human colonic microflora leads to a shift in the composition of the indigenous
bacterial ecosystem, in favor of health-promoting bifidobacteria. In addition to their dietary fibre
effects on improved bowel regularity, several physiological advantages are linked to their specific
Pattern of fermentation in the colon, including improved mineral absorption, enhanced natural
host defenses and colonic protection, improved gut health, and beneficial influence on
> Pectin, Pectin has demonstrated unique properties in blocking cancer cell aggregation, adhesion
and metastasis. Clinical research shows that pectin helps limit disease progression in men with
advanced prostate cancer. In addition to its cancer-inhibiting effects, pectin shows promise in
chelating toxic heavy metals that can be so damaging to overall health.
> Essential garlic oil, Data gathered from studies by the scientific community prove beyond doubt
that garlic oil lowers blood pressure, lowers LDL Cholesterol, Garlic helps reduce atherosclerotic buildup
(plaque) within the arterial system. One recent study shows this effect to be greater in women than men.
Lowers or helps regulate blood sugar, helps to prevent blood clots from forming, thus reducing the
possibility of strokes and thromboses. Helps thin the blood. Hemophiliacs shouldn’t use garlic.
Garlic oil aids in cancer prevention, especially of the digestive system, prevents certain tumors from
growing larger and reduces the size of certain tumors. Garlic in all forms may help to remove heavy metals
such as lead and mercury from the body. It is a potent natural antibiotic that works differently than
“Modern” antibiotics and kills some strains of bacteria, like staph, that have become immune or resistant
to pharmaceutical antibiotics. Garlic has anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. Garlic oil dramatically reduces
yeast infections due to Candida species. Garlic has anti-oxidant properties and is a source of selenium.
> Adenosine, Adenosine is a nucleoside composed of a molecule of adenine attached to a ribose sugar
molecule (ribofuranose) moiety via a β-N9-glycosidic bond. Adenosine plays an important role in biochemical
processes, such as energy transfer—as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and adenosine diphosphate (ADP)—
as well as in signal transduction as cyclic adenosine monophosphate, cAMP. It is also an inhibitory
neurotransmitter, believed to play a role in promoting sleep and suppressing arousal, with levels increasing
with each hour an organism is awake. Adenosine is believed to be an anti-inflammatory agent at the A(2A)
receptor. Topical treatment of adenosine to foot wounds in diabetes mellitus has been shown to drastically
increase tissue repair and reconstruction. Topical administration of adenosine for use in wound healing
deficiencies and diabetes mellitus in humans is currently under clinical investigation.
Adenosine has been reported to directly inhibit an RNA-dependent RNA polymerase of the dengue virus by
terminating its RNA chain synthesis. This suppresses peak viremia, rise in cytokines and prevented infected
animal from death raising the possibility of a new treatment for this flavivirus. The 7-deaza-adenosine
analog has been shown to inhibit the replication of the hepatitis C virus.
> Biotin, Biotin is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and
amino acids. It plays a role in the citric acid cycle, which is the process by which biochemical energy is
generated during aerobic respiration. Biotin not only assists in various metabolic reactions, but also helps to
transfer carbon dioxide. Biotin may also be helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level. Biotin is often
recommended for strengthening hair and nails.
Biotin deficiency (lack of) has shown to lead to hair loss (alopecia), Conjunctivitis, Dermatitis in the form of a scaly
red rash around the eyes, nose, mouth, and genital area. Neurological symptoms in adults such as depression,
lethargy, hallucination, and numbness and tingling of the extremities.
The characteristic facial rash, together with an unusual facial fat distribution, has been termed the
“biotin-deficient face” by some experts. Individuals with hereditary disorders of biotin deficiency have evidence
of impaired immune system function, including increased susceptibility to bacterial and fungal infections.
Pregnant women tend to have high risk of biotin deficiency. Research has shown that nearly half of pregnant
women have a reduced status of biotin. Numbers of studies reported that this possible biotin deficiency
during the pregnancy may cause infants’ congenital malformations such as cleft palate.
Biotin is effective at preventing ketolactic acidosis, organic aciduria, hyperammonemia, skin rash, feeding
problems, hypotonie, seizures, development delay, alopecia, and coma.
General symptoms of lack of Biotin in the human body include decreased appetite and growth. Dermatologic
symptoms include dermatitis, alopecia (hair loss) and achromotrichia (absence or loss of pigment in the hair),
Perosis (a shortening and thickening of bones). Fatty liver and kidney syndrome (FLKS) and hepatic steatosis
also can occur.
Children with a rare inherited metabolic disorder called phenylketonuria (PKU; in which one is unable to
break down the amino acid phenylalanine) often develop skin conditions such as eczema and seborrheic
dermatitis in areas of the body other than the scalp. The scaly skin changes that occur in people with
PKU may be related to poor ability to use biotin. Increasing dietary biotin has been known to improve
seborrheic dermatitis in these cases.
