Folks,

Keep on seeing the Black Garlic advertisements on TV and shopping malls.
Is it really that good for health as claimed? Has anyone really benefited from this product (e.g. lower blood pressure, cholesterol), is black garlic really that different from normal garlic? Price difference is huge.

if it's too good to be true, it always is.

If u eat an unhealthy diet, u think a few capsules of concentrated garlic is going to make a difference?

Just concentrate on the rest of your diet and your own exercise regime would be better.

The advertised Black Garlic really sounds too good to be true, to me.

I am wondering why Guardian and Watson carry such products and advertise BIG-BIG, and charge such high price.

I salute those who can take supplement regularly 'co all the supplements I bought, I only take about 20% of it and the rest throw on expiry. Either no discipline at all or the supplements gave "side-effects" and need to stop and start again to observe.

Examples, Vit B Complex => too "heaty" until urine orangy; LingZhi capsule => Lao Sai after taking.

Taking lotsa of fibres is still the best. Sh1ts come out nice and smooth. Very satisfactory feeling after bombing.

no amt of supplement and food will relieve your cholestrol, blood pressure and other ailments if you dont practise good dietary habit and exercises.

for me, my trigyceride and cholestrol were on the high level for years. i tried taking red yeast capsules, fish oil and plant sterol but doesnt help much. at that time, i still eat alot without control and dont exercise at all.

So finally, i took the motivation to exercise and i lost more than 12kg in 6mths and the last blood test shown i have normalised my LDL, HDL improves and my trigyercide has also normalised. Nothing beat losing weight and good eating habit.

Many of these product claims are used to trick ignorant ppl who think by drinking milk added w plant sterol, it will lower their cholestrol. theorically plant sterol works but if u think by eating food added w sterol will improve ur health, its just so dumb.

Yes, healthy exercise is still best.
Next is just to eat fresh and non processed food, east fresh veggie and fresh cooked meat. Even eating lots of natural animal skins(baked or grilled), is much healthier than eating fried stuff!
I believe it's the dangerous preservatives, and processed chemicals that is the main culprit for the woes many have in their health.
I have changed my health, after buying the Philips air fryer, now I feel brighter and less falling sick.
Now all I need is to start exercising, to complete my healthy living pledge for 2012. Hell, let me start my new exercise resolution come 2013.

The only supplement I eat is the centrum multi vits.

All these red yeast, black garlic, beet root crystals, bee pollen, collagen, etc...tried them all....and wasted so much money.
The money I saved monthly from NOT buying these useless food supplements, is able to allow me to own a nicer car.
