IF you're looking to make your exercise regime easier, more effective and enjoyable, then blackcurrants are a superb natural food source to make a real difference.
The active blackcurrant compounds in CurraNZ are highly unusual because of their combination of scientifically-proven actions.
As anti-inflammatory, circulation-boosting and antioxidant agents, blackcurrants are demonstrating a range of remarkable broad-spectrum health and fitness benefits.
Here's how the compounds in CurraNZ can help keep you healthy and reach your goals faster, whatever your age or fitness level:
1. RECOVER FASTER FROM EXERCISE
New Zealand scientists have shown that our extract is potent for reducing exercise-induced oxidative stress and accelerating recovery from exercise.
CurraNZ is an ideal training aid if you're looking to suffer less and return to training more quickly, with fewer aches and pains - guaranteed (more below).
2. BURN MORE FAT
Studies show CurraNZ increases fat burning by up to 27% in men and women at moderate exercise intensity. This unprecedented effect is thought to aid sports performance, which has been proven in five cycling and running studies to date.
One week's use of CurraNZ increases fat burning to the same degree of exercising two hours a day for a month.
Two capsules daily are required to get these natural fat burning benefits, and the effects improve with longer use.
So, if you're looking to improve the effectiveness of your workouts and make those hours really count, this amazing berry will naturally help your body favour fat as fuel - and as a result, lead to less fatigue, too.
3. EXERCISE BECOMES EASIER
Blackcurrants are prized for their effect on circulation, with studies showing they lower blood pressure and increase blood flow up to a whopping 35% during exercise.
This means muscles don't have to work so hard during activity and you'll experience lower levels of fatigue.
Plus, with reduced pressure on the cardiovascular system, exertion will be less difficult, which is a big winner for older and unfit people.
If you're a performance-minded athlete, then blackcurrants are a stunning new legal intervention to take yourself to the next level. Studies have shown CurraNZ can improve running performance by averages of 11%, and is incredibly effective for endurance and team-based running sports.
The berry also improves ‘affective response’ to exercise – emotion and mood – which largely influence motivation to continue exercising and adhere to an exercise regime.
A recent study looked at the effects of consuming polyphenolic-rich New Zealand blackcurrant one hour prior to exercising and found that participants had a significantly lower perception of exercise exertion at time-points over the first 60 minutes than the control group.
4. IMPORTANT WINTER IMMUNE SUPPORT
Blackcurrants have multiple broad-spectrum benefits that help you stay well, boot-strap the immune system and fight infections.
Intense exercise and high-stress lifestyles naturally lower immune defences, which leaves the body open to opportunistic infections.
Winter can be particularly difficult for avoiding seasonal bugs, and this is where blackcurrants come into their own as a brilliant natural intervention to help boost immunity.
A recent study from Plant and Food highlighted the potency of one dose of blackcurrant extract for increasing the body's circulating neutrophils in the six hours that followed.
As well as this, blackcurrant extract has been shown to help 'disinfect' cells infected with Influenza virus, meaning you'll receive additional protection against the dreaded winter flu.
