Blackcurrant – Your New Favourite Berry

Vitality Blackcurrant Powder For Muscle Recovery After Exercise

The Vitality Muscle Recovery blackcurrant supplement is a perfect product to try if you are already an athlete or just beginning your new exercise regime to help reduce the chance of sore muscles.

There has been a lot of research done on the benefits of blackcurrant but in particular here in NZ research has been conducted on how blackcurrant can benefit exercise.

Overall the different studies show that Blackcurrant powder can:

  • Lower Lactate accumulation during intense exercise
  • Improve performance and recover for endurance athletes
  • Have positive effects on resting cardiovascular function in triathletes

It is believed that the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects seen within muscle recovery when using blackcurrant can offer long term benefits for athletes and the general population. (Im thinking of ageing rugby players from days gone by who would normally have somewhat broken bodies.)

But don’t be cornered into thinking that this is just for muscle recovery. (The rather lovely image of a buff man on the Vitality label may be off putting to some, or appealing to others). Blackcurrant has a whole host of benefits, way too many to image onto a label.

The list includes but is not limited to:

  • Eye health
  • Cardio health
  • Vascular health
  • Immune health
  • Brain health
  • Gut health
  • Chronic pain and fatigue

The key to how blackcurrant powder can exert such beneficial effects here is the ANTHOCYANIN found in blackcurrant – a powerful flavonoid-polyphenol that in the plant itself is designed to protect the plant from environmental stressors increasing their resistance to disease. With so many new articles showing the positive benefits of blackcurrant powders it makes sense to add this into your daily supplement routine.

I have used the Vitality Muscle Recovery for a few different clients for varying needs such as athletic performance, gut health and cardio health all with positive feedback. It can be taken daily for maintenance or you can increase the amount to fit in with intense exercise or performance events. Each capsule has 550mg capsule has 100mg of Anthocyanin and is an easy way to increase your antioxidant levels for health protection. The blackcurrants are harvested and manufactured right here in awesome Aotearoa.

AND ITS ON SALE FOR A LIMITED TIME!!!! It has 30% off at the moment which is an amazing discount! The usual price of $50 is now down to $35 for 60 capsules.

For those with little kids, Blackcurrant is an amazing product to include into their diet for their energy and brain health as well as their immune system. You can try the Zeaberry Blackcurrant powder (another amazing grown in NZ product) which is probably easier to give them and add this to smoothies, make into home made lemonades, add to yogurt or make coconut cream desserts.

Once again shop online or in store! If you have any questions around Blackcurrant powder and how it could benefit you, pop us a line.
