CurraNZ – Your questions answered

Q.  What is CurraNZ?

A.  CurraNZ is a natural food supplement in a capsule, containing a 100% natural freeze-dried New Zealand blackcurrant extract formulation – the only high-potency supplement of its kind on the UK market.

Berries have long been promoted as having health-protective benefits and disease-fighting properties. New Zealand blackcurrants are THE major players for their nutrient density and the active compounds in CurraNZ have a range of health and sports benefits.

Each capsule contains approximately a generous handful of New Zealand blackcurrants per 300mg.

Q.  How does it work?

A. The active natural ingredient in CurraNZ, anthocyanins, expand the body’s blood vessels, which results in an increase in blood flow and oxygen delivery. Ground-breaking scientific research has shown this can have a huge impact on sports performance and recovery, as well as fat oxidation.

Scientists have long been encouraging people to increase their intake of berries due to their protective and health-promoting benefits. New Zealand blackcurrants have been shown to be the ‘King of Berries’ for their powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, circulatory and immune-promoting actions, important for maintaining health and wellbeing.

Q.  How does CurraNZ help me?

Taking CurraNZ provides a huge amount of health benefits, sports performance and recovery benefits and can even help support healthy cognitive functions.

A.  Research shows;

  • Improved performance – allowing you to go further before tiring
  • Dramatically increases fat burning, resulting in up 27% greater fat oxidation during exercise, for improved endurance.
  • Reduced recovery time – aids muscles and clears lactate faster
  • Reduced DOMS – Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness – or the pain that you feel in your muscles up to 48 hours after the event – is reduced.
  • Faster tissue repair Increased blood flow means more nutrients are delivered to cells
  • Anti-inflammatory - helps with healing processes
  • Anti-oxidant - helps neutralise damaging free radicals that damage the body's cells
  •  Immune booster – enhances immune responses and promotes first-line defences

One of the most noticeable benefits for athletes is its effect on reducing muscle soreness.

Q.  How quickly will I feel the effects of CurraNZ?

A.  This depends on what you are taking CurraNZ for.

For exercise:

To enjoy improved sports recovery, take TWO HOURS before exercising.

For performance and fat burning, a seven-day loading period of one-two capsules is required. Effects improve with longer intake.

Use daily for best results.

For general health:

Some people experience results quicker than others, but we recommend using one capsule daily for general health. For menopausal hot flushes, better results can be achieved with two-three capsules daily for a month.

Q.  How many should I take?

A.  For recovery: Up to 75kgs – 1 capsule. Over 75kg – 2 capsules.
For optimal performance: Two capsules, irrespective of body weight.
For fat burning during exercise: One-two capsules two hours before exercise. Use daily. One capsule will still work, but to a slightly lesser degree than the higher dose.

If you are using CurraNZ for exercise for periods spanning over six hours then re-dose six hours after the initial dose.  

Q.  Can I take more than two capsules a day?

 Yes, it is fine to increase dose to a maximum of three capsules at one time if you are undertaking a lot of exercise or extreme endurance tests. 

Use morning and night if recovering from surgery, injury or fighting infection.

Q.  Is CurraNZ a herbal remedy?

No. CurraNZ is a food supplement made from 100% blackcurrants, which are classed as a 'botanical'. One capsule of CurraNZ provides a freeze-dried nutritional equivalent of eating a handful of the fresh berries. 

Q.  Is CurraNZ safe?

A.  CurraNZ only contains fruit and is free of additives, synthetic ingredients, chemicals or sugar. We use only premium, high-purity New Zealand blackcurrant extract made by one of the world’s leading producers. Always use in conjunction with a balanced diet. If using with medication, ask your doctor's advice. 

Q.  Is CurraNZ drug-free?

A.  Yes. We only use natural ingredients in the content and capsule. Every batch is drug tested to give professional athletes confidence in its drug-free status. 

Q.  Why should I switch to CurraNZ from my regular supplement programme?

A.  For sports:

A meta-analysis study has declared CurraNZ is 10% more effective than caffeine, previously considered to be the best legal performance-enhancing supplement available. CurraNZ offers excellent value for money with its multiple, proven benefits for athletes.

It aids fat burning, performance, recovery and immunity – reducing your requirement for using many supplements to achieve the same outcome.

CurraNz represents a cost saving for those using supplements for performance (such as beetroot), and another for recovery, (such as cherry/blueberry products).

Additionally, CurraNZ is the first food supplement found to improve fat burning under exercise conditions and reduce the effects of fatigue during exercise.

In general:

CurraNZ offers a range of health promoting compounds and is an excellent way of topping up antioxidants in your diet.  

Additionally, the health benefits are far reaching, from helping improve blood vessel health and function, reducing  inflammation, improving brain and eye health, improving energy and immunity, few supplements on the market offer such a broad range of potential benefits - naturally.

Q.  What makes CurraNZ unique?                                   

A.  New Zealand Blackcurrants are a ‘superfood’, containing the highest levels of polyphenolic compounds and anthocyanins, of any fruit in the world. They have been shown to have many beneficial actions in the body, particularly for athletes, demonstrating effects not found before in other food supplements.

The superior nature of the fruit is due to the unique climatic conditions in which they are grown, in the South Island of New Zealand. The unique blackcurrant varieties, strong ultraviolet sunlight, hot summers and harsh winters result in berries that produce very high concentrations of these health-giving compounds.  

The blackcurrants sourced from New Zealand have 1.5 times more anthocyanins than their European counterparts and up to eight times the antioxidants of blueberries.

Q.  What is the money-back guarantee about?

A. This money back guarantee is for exercise-induced muscle soreness, if you don’t observe a reduction in this or improvement in recovery from exercise after using CurraNZ for a month, we will refund your money.

Q.  Can anyone use CurraNZ?

A.  Yes, it is suitable for everyone, unless you have an allergy to berry fruit.

Q.  Can I take CurraNZ during pregnancy?

A.  We recommend using no more than one capsule per day until week 26, then discontinuing until birth. Please consult your doctor for guidance on polyphenol intake during pregnancy.
