Dual-Purpose Veggie DEFEATS High Blood Pressure and More!

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Once you reach a certain age, staying healthy often feels impossible.

You worry about your blood sugar… your blood pressure… keeping a strong memory…

And before you know it, you’ve made yourself sick just trying to keep up with it all!

But now, there’s an easier way to get a myriad of health benefits from one single source.

This dual-purpose veggie could help you defeat high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and so much more!

You’ve probably heard garlic is good for you.

After all, the numbers of studies which have been done on garlic over the years nearly overflow my file cabinet!

And now researchers have discovered that black garlic in particular has a BEVY of benefits all its own.

Black garlic is a type of fermented garlic that is kept under high humidity and temperature for several weeks. The fermentation process turns the garlic black, and it’s this process that gives black garlic FAR more antioxidants than raw garlic.

The culinary world loves black garlic for its mild, tangy, and slight sweetness, and some folks even find that tastes a bit like molasses.

Black garlic contains essential amino acids and important vitamins and minerals, but its major health benefits come from the molecule allicin.

When crushed or fermented, allicin is converted into antioxidant compounds like alkaloids and flavonoids.

Studies in animals given black garlic show that it can help:

  • control blood sugar,
  • reduce inflammation,
  • lower cholesterol,
  • and even suppress the appetite.

Garlic has always been good for your heart, but black garlic in particular has been shown to help improve blood flow and lower triglycerides.

Black garlic is also good for your brain. A recent study showed it can reduce inflammation caused by the buildup of beta-amyloid plaques, which have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Studies with black garlic also suggest it can help with cancer. Black garlic shows stronger immune-stimulating, antioxidant, and anticancer activities than raw garlic extract.

Garlic has always been good for your digestion, and black garlic is no different. Some studies have shown it could be helpful for your liver as well.

You can order black garlic online, and many health food stores now carry it as well.

And if you’re not fond of the taste, you can find black garlic as a supplement here.

P.S. Did you know that garlic can help with arthritis pain as well? Find out more right here.
