Black garlic has become a highly sought-after product over the past decade, but its use dates back more than a thousand, until the ancient Egyptian society. Today it is a widely consumed product in places throughout Asia, where it is part of the ancient culture of China or Thailand, having been used for centuries in traditional medicine.
Garlic is one of the species most used by humanity as a natural remedy, highlighting its traditional uses as a cardio protective and promoter of the immune system.
However, it is black garlic that appears to have unbanked its younger brother in the nutraceutical sector, and this is due to changes in the molecular composition of garlic as it ages to obtain the coveted black garlic. During this process, some of the most unstable molecules of white garlic (responsible for the unpleasant effects associated with garlic, such as odor) turn into compounds of greater stability, and that provide a number of benefits to be considered.
This is the case with SAC (S-alyl-cysteine) which is a compound derived from allicin, only obtainable by aging white garlic. The stability and bio accessibility of SAC, as well as its high antioxidant capacity, make it a molecule with protective cardio properties, capable of combating cellular oxidative stress.
Black garlic has shown to have a polyphenol content 10 times higher than white garlic, placing itself as a 2.0 version of it, providing greater antioxidant and cardio protective capacity.
Pharmactive is part of the best raw material, a garlic with unique organoleptic properties, grown in a sustainable and traditional way in Castilla la Mancha (one of the most privileged areas in the world for the cultivation of this plant). It undergoes its own extraction process, using SAC-Ultrapure-Tech™ technology. This technology is the result of a project of more than 5 years, in which Pharmactive has involved engineers and experts in multiple subjects, to give rise to a production machinery that allows us to obtain a 100% natural SAC, as well as other bioactive compounds from aged garlic, all without the need to use alcoholic solvents or chemical emissions into the environment.
Cardiovascular health is a purpose that can only be achieved through full involvement with our body, and this requires an active life and a diet that contributes to this goal. From Pharmactive, we want to contribute our grain of sand to contribute to people’s health, by providing ingredients of the highest quality and value, to make living healthy nutrition easier.
