Here in Japan, garlic matured in black vinegar is considered both a delicacy and an important part if folk medicine. And the blackend cloves are actually delicious, developing a heavy sweet but mature taste. So I decided to take them (in supplement form) to see if they would lower my uric acid level, which has been high for some time and will not come down (well, I have not focused on my diet). And besides, they are supposed to help with high blood pressure, which I have developed recently. So let us try, it will last a couple of weeks. And at the very least, it will keep the vampires away.
