WHETHER it is the first or the 50th time you have purchased CurraNZ, you may want to check whether you're getting the most out of your purchase.
We'll cover the exercise benefits first, but read on, because the health benefits which follow are equally important.
Here, we explain spectrum of natural goodness that you can receive from CurraNZ, now recommended as 'daily essentials' for health, active nutrition and athlete consumers.
For active people, CurraNZ has three main benefits: It helps reduce fatigue/ improves endurance, increases fat burning and helps reduce muscle soreness.
As a rule of thumb, take two hours before a session. This is how long it will take for the blackcurrant to be absorbed and provide you with the benefit.
For muscle recovery: Use 1 capsule for those up to 75kg and 2 capsules if over.
You can still receive the recovery benefits if you forget to take it 2 hours before exercise - take it as close to the session as possible, even 20 minutes afterwards.
The effects last for about six hours, so if you are exercising for longer periods you can re-dose four hours after your first dose. This is a really good tip for endurance athletes who race in long events, such as IronMan or ultra-races.
Note, for optimum performance benefits, it is essential to load, using two capsules a day for at least one week.
Everyone is a little different, so don't be afraid to experiment and use this as a starting point.
Health: Fat burning, cardiovascular, blood sugar, hayfever
For general health and wellbeing, we suggest one capsule a day.
If you're looking for the fat burning benefit, the best effect is achieved with two capsules - but it must taken daily. It will not work when used intermittently.
Are you intermittent fasting? CurraNZ contains just 1.1 calories per capsule and is a great hack for enhancing fat burning during fasting hours. Take at the beginning of any fasting period.
For insulin sensitivity, hayfever, cardiovascular health and reducing nonenal odour, two capsules will deliver better outcomes, but will still show a benefit at the lower dose. Alternate the dosing and experiment to see what works best for you.
A number of customers often tell us they feel different and think it's CurraNZ, but aren't sure. It is common to observe an energy increase, along with better resistance to colds and flu.
If possible, measure or score the areas you are looking to improve before you start CurraNZ, for example, record blood sugar levels, blood pressure, or weight.
Use the product for a month and measure again. This will be enough to say categorically if you are getting benefits for those health areas.
One lady who has been on CurraNZ for three months has been using the product for her blood sugar levels, but noticed she has lost 7kgs without doing any extra exercise.
Ways to take CurraNZ - add it to your juice or smoothie
Most people just swallow the capsules with water or a drink but it's also brilliant when added to a blender with a smoothie. Expect a flash of purple and a tang of blackcurrant tartness.
For those who are capsule-phobic, another option is to crack open the capsule and mix into yogurt or stir into apple juice.
This is a great approach for kiddies too - we suggest reducing the dose to half a capsule. As children tend to have more sensitive palates, adding it to something with some natural sweetness may be helpful to 'make the medicine go down'.
A lot of people believe you should get everything you need nutritionally from a balanced diet. This is true, but unfortunately with mineral deficiencies in the soil, we don't always receive all the nutrients we need.
Stress and demands on our lives means we use more nutrients to cope so we need more sources of nutrients in our diet. So, while theoretically eating a balanced diet will give you everything you need, the reality is often different.
Taking supplements to help you be your personal best is often a necessity in today's world and CurraNZ can help fulfil a number of important nutritional needs.
