Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Fermentation of black garlic is supposed to enhance its antioxidant potential. Antioxidants are cancer prevention agents
Scavenges free radicals – Including superoxide, hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl, peroxynitrite radicals, as well as hypochlorous acid and singlet oxygen. None of this is of course proven medically as garlic is a food and not a drug and of course not regulated by the FDA.
