An antioxidant-rich superfood powerhouse, these small deep purple coloured berries pack a nutritious punch! Blackcurrants are full of anthocyanin antioxidants to protect your cells and support youthful health and vitality.
In addition to anthocyanins, blackcurrant or black currant (Ribes nigrum) is loaded with vitamins and minerals including iron and potassium. Well known for being high in vitamin C, blackcurrant contains up to 4 times the amount found of vitamin C in oranges.
Blackcurrant or black currant supplements can offer support for:
- Brain function

- Sports performance
- Healthy ageing
- Protection against free radical damage

New Zealand Blackcurrant is known for its extra high antioxidant content. Research has shown up to 1.5 times more anthocyanins (beautiful, deep purple plant pigments) than non-NZ blackcurrant. This is in part due to our harsh UV light that stresses the plant into producing higher levels of antioxidants as a form of protection.
Available in powder, capsules, freeze dried whole berries and juice, there are a number of ways to take blackcurrant to suit any preference. Add to your morning smoothie, or take a bottle of juice or a handful of freeze-dried berries with you while you’re on the go. Backed by our Better Choices Promise, we have you covered for superior quality New Zealand Blackcurrant.
