CurraNZ is a supplement naturally created from the anthocyanin-rich purple skins of New Zealand blackcurrants. It is a capsule which contains the nutritional value of 85 blackcurrants which could be the key to staying healthy all year-round and on top of your training.
What a lot of people don’t know is that blackcurrants contain more anthocyanins than any other purple fruit and veg – this is the compound which gives fruit and veg its purple colour. It has three key actions in the body, it’s a vasodilator (so increases blood flow), it’s a natural anti-inflammatory and a powerful antioxidant. These help to strengthen the immune system to prevent you from getting sick.
Studies have also shown that blackcurrant supplements enhance the immune response in people who exercised regularly. They could also train harder for longer periods of time. In addition to increased immunity, CurraNZ has been scientifically proven to increase performance, by 11%, reduce muscle fatigue and accelerate fat-burning by 27% during exercise.
The reason why blackcurrant isn’t celebrated more is that it just isn’t easily accessible all year round – and like a lot of fruit and veg, you need to consume high quantities to experience the benefits.
So I’ve been taking 2 a day for a month and I haven’t been ill even though a cold had a run through the others in the home. I’ve been surfing and training Jiu-Jitsu with no injuries and more energy than previously. This could be due to an increase in the general fitness from repeated training or it could have had help from CurraNZ.
