New Zealand Blackcurrants contain higher amounts of anthocyanins compared to other blackcurrants due to our growing conditions. Anthocyanins are extracted from the skin of the blackcurrant and are dried into a concentrated extract. In addition to anthocyanins, blackcurrants are very high in antioxidants such as flavonoids and polyphenolics.
Blackcurrant antioxidants are thought to protect the body against the action of free radicals. Antioxidants absorbed from the diet may also aid the body’s natural defense systems.
Each capsule is made with vegetarian Vcaps® capsules and contains 106mg of blackcurrant anthocyanins and 147mg of vitamin C.
SOME OF THE LATEST BLACKCURRANT SCIENCE FROM NEW ZEALAND
A New Zealand study looked at the effectiveness of blackcurrant to augment the ability of regular exercise to enhance the immune responsiveness of the body.
Subjects consumed New Zealand blackcurrant capsules, pre, and post-exercise equivalent to about 1/3 cup berries (240mg anthocyanin), for three weeks. The results showed: - Significantly lower levels of biomarkers of oxidative stress in plasma. - Significantly increased ability of plasma to suppress inflammatory responses.
The researchers concluded that blackcurrant extracts taken at the appropriate time and amount can augment the ability of regular exercise to enhance the immune responsiveness of the body.
This research found that blackcurrants boost the natural benefits of exercise, by reducing muscle damage and soreness and assisting immune protection. These benefits are backed by scientific data showing speedier tissue repair, recovery and performance in exercise. Therefore, this study suggests that at the appropriate time and amounts, New Zealand blackcurrants enable those involved in physical fitness to train harder, for longer periods
