Meeting Mike Tyson - The Tale of Black Garlic

Meeting Mike Tyson - The Tale of Black Garlic

Many people would never dare to eat raw garlic because the consequences can be quite pungent. I personally always had an issue with it too. During my travels in Europe, I stumbled upon black fermented garlic from local farmers. I gave it a try, tested it for a while, and it took me a long time to believe that not all garlic is the same! But black garlic - that's the real deal. After such a great experience, I decided to add it to the trusted Gingerbeli portfolio. My family and friends couldn't believe it.

The main photo on my blog from the Cannes Lions festival speaks for itself. Can you imagine meeting the boxing legend Mike Tyson with anything other than black garlic that does not smell at all? I certainly can't! I don't even know what I would have done; Mr. Tyson would have thought I was mute. I met him twice in the elevator within 20 minutes while I was creating photos and videos with a photographer (who was shooting Mike Tyson) for my new Gingerbeli product, black garlic. So, I had the chance to talk to him and take pictures. It was truly an experience - grace, smiles, and humility were not lacking.

But now, back to Gingerbeli's black garlic... I noticed many benefits from using it, especially when I needed a little boost in life! Whenever I needed to boost my immunity or had minor health issues, two cloves of garlic a day usually did the trick. Consuming regular garlic has many advantages. However, I had to be careful about my breath after eating it ;-) I was looking for a way to enjoy garlic without worrying about the aftermath. Of course, pharmacies are full of capsules that can save your breath, but who knows what's inside them ;-) I prefer my garlic natural and fresh...

And then I discovered the black Gingerbeli garlic from local farmers in Europe! Finally, I can enjoy garlic anytime I want without worrying about any activities during the day because black garlic has no odor. It even has a naturally sweet taste. Honestly, black Gingerbeli garlic saved me.

What actually makes black garlic black? Black Gingerbeli garlic is prepared by heating garlic for several weeks. Humidity must be carefully controlled. This process causes the garlic and its cloves to soften, caramelize, and then turn black over time. The whole process gives the garlic a pleasantly sweet taste.

Here is the question that everyone might ask. Is black Gingerbeli garlic healthier and better for you than regular garlic? Hmm, I must say that this question crossed my mind first. I started searching... I found studies that say yes. I learned that it may contain more antioxidants and S-allylcysteine (SAC). SAC helps the body absorb allicin. Allicin can help prevent some types of cancer, lower blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure. The most active compounds of allicin are delivered through garlic. After reading all of this, it got me thinking.

What are the benefits of black garlic that I started testing on myself, my closest family, and friends? Anyway, I introduced them to what I had read at first. I can tell you it wasn't easy; almost everyone questioned why I was even bothering with black garlic and where I came up with the idea.

I have selected 8 benefits that I found the most interesting and have personally tested:

  1. Black garlic contains a large amount of antioxidants! The reason is Allicin. Antioxidants help protect your cells from oxidative damage that could lead to diseases. It is said that the peak of antioxidants in garlic is reached after 21 days of fermentation.

  2. Black garlic helps regulate blood sugar levels. This is especially important for people with diabetes. One study shows that black garlic can improve cholesterol, reduce inflammation, and even acts as an appetite regulator, which both men and women appreciate when trying to lose weight. Another study has shown that consuming black garlic can lower glucose and insulin levels.

  1. Black Gingerbeli garlic helps improve concentration, which I can really confirm as I feel more focused. Maybe psychology plays a certain role, but I'll tell you, try it, it's really great. Studies also suggest that black garlic helps with memory loss and Alzheimer's disease. In any case, it can't be missing from my snack. Believe it or not, a few family members feel the same way now.

  2. It definitely helps my skin. I've noticed that when I regularly eat black garlic, my skin is brighter and smoother. My cousin's daughter is in her teens, she's 16, and she swears by black garlic. She suffers from acne. Of course, a girl her age doesn't want to hear about eating garlic. When I convinced her to try it instead of spending a lot of money on cosmetics that often don't help at her age, she was thrilled.

  3. Regular consumption of black Gingerbeli garlic ensures better immunity, which has proved beneficial during my regular travels.

  4. And your libido? Try black Gingerbeli garlic, I have nothing more to add ;-)

  5. Black Gingerbeli garlic after a weekend party? A proven remedy! But you have to try it for yourself. I'll never forget how my sister started making garlic spread at 3 in the morning to be fit for school on Monday. Garlic did help her with Monday's classes, but the garlic scent lingered at home until Friday when she went to another party :-) It's a shame I didn't read about black garlic sooner; she could have been getting it regularly from me, just like pocket money :D

  6. Can't sleep? Full moon, not a full moon? No... try black Gingerbeli garlic!!! Regular consumption keeps me from sleepless nights.

I am fully aware that every body is different, and we should learn to listen to it, but I think the path of least resistance is to try black Gingerbeli garlic, which is really top-notch. Try it, you'll see for yourself.

For motivation, check out the videos I made about black Gingerbeli garlic. I simply fell in love with it.

Have a beautiful, but not black day :-)




and my own experience.
