Introducing our new product, CurraNZ® Immune Support, a blockbuster formulation of polyphenols, botanicals, vitamins and minerals.
With the explosion in the scientific understanding of plant phytochemicals for health and immunity, we are proud to launch CurraNZ® Immune Support, an expertly formulated 100% natural food supplement blend of bioactives from polyphenols, botanicals, vitamins and minerals.
Featuring the powerful Immuno3BTM super-complex, CurraNZ® Immune Support is a proprietary formulation of nutrient-dense botanical polyphenol compounds courtesy of CurraNZ® blackcurrant 35% extract, plus blueberries and elderberries.
These hero botanical compounds, called anthocyanins, are responsible for delivering the immune-enhancing effects and help prevent opportunistic infections (8,9).
Completing the Vegan-friendly formulation, are nature-identical sources of Vitamins C, D, A, Beta Glucans and Selenium, which are important contributors to the normal function of the immune system.
The broad-spectrum properties of Anthocyanins
The anthocyanins in our Immuno3BTM complex have diverse and complex modes of action. They interact with a specific type of immune T cell - an important arm of the immune system - to activate both innate and acquired immunity and support mucosal defences (1,2).
As well as supporting immune function, anthocyanins multi-task as antioxidants, and therefore doubly beneficial because they prevent damage to surrounding tissues caused by Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), which is generated by inflammation (7-9).
Studies have found that symptoms of colds and Influenza may be shorter and less severe with elderberry supplementation, compared to placebo (10).
Each capsule of CurraNZ® Immune Support contains the equivalent of 2,500mg of fresh blackcurrants, blueberries and elderberries.
Free of synthetic ingredients, the Vitamin C used in CurraNZ® Immune Support is sourced from cherry, to perfectly complement the berry botanicals in this natural supplement.
Acerola cherry is one of the richest natural sources of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) – around 50–100 times than that of oranges or lemons – and also contains a plethora of phytonutrients like anthocyanins (11-12).
Beta-glucans have been used in traditional Chinese medicine as immunomodulators for centuries. These groups of polysaccharides (complex sugars) are sourced from brewer’s yeast. As with anthocyanins, they act to trigger the host’s immune responses and enhance innate immune memory, whilst protecting against bacterial re-infection (13).
Vitamin D (from mushroom) plays a crucial role in the proper functioning and activation of the immune system — the first line of defence against infection and disease. Each capsule provides a healthy dose - 200% NRV - to activate immune system function. Vitamin D has both anti-inflammatory and immunoregulatory properties and enhances T-cells and macrophage activity, which protects your body against pathogens (14).
Vitamin A (from beta carotene), is a micronutrient that is crucial for maintaining vision, promoting growth and development, and protecting epithelium (cells that protect and enclose organs) and mucus integrity in the body. Vitamin A is known as an anti-inflammation vitamin because of its critical role in enhancing immune function (15)
Selenium, (selenium-rich yeast), plays an important role in the health of the immune system, with each capsule providing 100% NRV. This antioxidant helps lower oxidative stress in your body, which reduces inflammation and enhances immunity.
Studies have demonstrated that increased blood levels of selenium are associated with enhanced immune response (16).
