CurraNZ – Your questions answered

 

Q.  What is CurraNZ?

A. CurraNZ is a natural food supplement in a capsule, containing a 100% natural, high-potency freeze-dried New Zealand blackcurrant extract formulation.

Berries have long been promoted as having health-protective benefits and New Zealand blackcurrants are major players for their nutrient density. The active compounds in CurraNZ concentrate these berry micronutrients in a convenient form to deliver their range of health and sports benefits.

CurraNZ is the first New Zealand blackcurrant supplement to be the subject of a large international sports performance research program and, as an evidence-based product, stands it apart from competitors.

Each capsule contains the equivalent of approximately 85 New Zealand blackcurrants and 105mg anthocyanin per 300mg capsule.

Q.  How does it work?

A. Anthocyanins are antioxidants naturally found in fruit and vegetables and in the case of blackcurrants, they can also offer anti-inflammatory and circulation-promoting benefits.

Scientists have long been encouraging people to increase their intake of berries due to their protective and health-promoting properties.

Scientific research shows the combined actions of blackcurrants may impact on sports performance and recovery.

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

For exercise recovery:

Use when required on the day. Take one to two capsules two hours before exercising.  

For exercise performance:                                       

Load on one capsule for seven days leading to the exercise event. Then on the day, take two capsules, two hours before exercise. When undertaking long-course events of six hours or more, redose every four hours.

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 aiding menopausal symptoms, better results can be achieved with two-three capsules daily for a month.
