CURRANZ is proud to announce a new collaboration with Healthspan Elite, official nutrition partners to the world’s most successful rugby team, the All Blacks.
The official Healthspan Elite CurraNZ product, used by the All Blacks, is launching as part of the UK company’s new supplement range in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Ireland – and is available from our online stores at curranz.com and curranz.co.nz.
Created for the All Blacks but relevant to all consumers, the Healthspan Elite range provides a first-ever insight into the tried-and-tested supplement regime of the indomitable team that is renowned for delivering repeated success on the big stage.
With their relentless desire to be better every day and in every match, the All Blacks legacy is built on greatness and commitment to excellence, having won more than three-quarters of all their international matches in a history spanning 125 years.
The three-time world champions rely on well researched, cutting-edge products for players in training and around match days, with the Healthspan Elite CurraNZ supplement providing an innovative, evidence-based offering for performance, recovery and wellbeing.
Described by All Blacks Performance Nutritionist Katrina Darry (pictured, right) as ‘one of the tools in their performance tool box,’ the Healthspan Elite CurraNZ supplement is a home-grown ingredient in the players’ nutrition arsenal.
Darry, Performance Nutritionist to the All Blacks since 2008, says: “We started using CurraNZ a couple of years ago when the research was building pace around New Zealand-grown blackcurrants and their ability to help with vasodilation, so it allows individuals to train longer than what would be anticipated.
“There’s growing research around its ability to burn more fat while training and conserve carbohydrate, which potentially helps reduce the build-up of lactic acid and resulting fatigue.
“The polyphenolic properties of blackcurrants support our food-first nutrition strategy and they also have a role in muscle recovery.
“So, there are a number of variables that CurraNZ can assist with - and we’ve had good feedback from players around its use.”
We are hugely proud that the All Blacks use Healthspan Elite’s CurraNZ supplement, a New Zealand-grown, award-winning supplement helping to power this internationally revered team.
30 capsules of the official Healthspan Elite All Blacks supplement, containing 300mg of CurraNZ blackcurrant extract, retails for £24.99/Euro29.99 and is certified by Informed-Sport
