WE’VE known for a while that New Zealand blackcurrants are fantastic for muscle recovery but now we can really shout about it – with the publication of a new study confirming their stunning effects - from just one dose.
New Zealand scientists have also shown our berry’s broad-spectrum benefits extend to helping people stay healthy and maintain a more active lifestyle.
Published in Frontiers in Nutrition Journal, the research showed blackcurrant extract, equivalent to one and two capsules of CurraNZ, is incredibly effective for reducing oxidative stress from exercise by up to 34%. In short, oxidative stress causes damage to the body’s cells and DNA.
The study, which involved 36 individuals, also found that blackcurrants can significantly preserve immune defences.
Intense exercise can lower the immune system, leading to an increased chance of getting ill, but blackcurrant proved highly effective for avoiding any decrease in immune function.
The findings confirm a recent customer poll, in which 90% of customers reported improved recovery from exercise, while almost 70% are enjoying better immunity and general health since using CurraNZ.
Previous studies by this team of New Zealand scientists found that our blackcurrants could promote a positive mood and the desire to exercise for longer.
The scientist who performed the research, Dr Roger Hurst, says: "The evidence is mountaing that New Zealand blackcurrants could help people have a more active lifestyle."
*This research reiterates the functional benefits of CurraNZ, which is backed by a 100% money-back guarantee for muscle recovery.
