Does Garlic Contain A Form Of Endotoxin, And Is Black Garlic Peat-healthy?


Jul 3, 2016
When garlic undergoes treatment to turn into black garlic, allicin, the component that gives fresh garlic its notorious odor, is converted into a variety of antioxidant compounds [R, R].

Black garlic has various antioxidants [R, R]:

  • Amadori/Heyns compounds: These are formed during the Maillard reaction. Amadori/Heyns compounds are strong antioxidants, and compared to fresh garlic, black garlic has up to 40 to 100 times more of these compounds [R]
  • 5-hydroxymethylfurfural: This is an antioxidant that also has some anti-inflammatory effects. Compared to white garlic, black garlic has a higher amount of this beneficial component, as 5-HMF is created under very high heat. [R]
  • Organosulfur compounds: Diallyl sulfide, diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulfide, and diallyl tetrasulfide [R]
  • Pyruvate: This is a key antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecule of black garlic. It reduces nitric oxide and prostaglandin E2, both of which prolong and intensify inflammation [R, R]
  • S-allylcysteine
  • Tetrahydro-β-carbolines
  • N-fructosyl glutamate
  • N-fructosyl arginine
  • Allixin
  • Selenium
  • N-alpha-(1-deoxy-d-fructos-1-yl)-l-arginine
  • Other alkaloids, polyphenols, and flavonoids
Black garlic also contains nitrogen oxide, which has strong antiviral and antitumor effects [R].

It also contains 2-linoleoylglycerol, an anti-inflammatory molecule. It lowers levels of prostaglandin E2 and cytokines, which are key promoters and signals of the inflammatory response. They prolong and increase cell death, swelling, and the uncomfortable symptoms of an allergy, infection, or other sicknesses [R, R].

Garlic contains polysaccharide as a major component according to the nitrogen oxide reference study: Comparison of Immunomodulatory Effects of Fresh Garlic and Black Garlic Polysaccharides on RAW 264.7 Macrophages. - PubMed - NCBI

Is black garlic Peaty-healthy, and healthier than garlic, and is their major component polysaccharide, related to endotoxin which is lipopolysaccharide?

The sulfide compounds do cross the BBB and throw off brain synchrony. I hate the mental effects of garlic.
