For centuries, blackcurrants have been rumored to have ‘nutraceutical’ qualities and medicinal benefits. However, it is only in recent decades that this remarkable fruit’s healing and protective powers are now being confirmed by solid scientific research. We recommend that for best results, our blackcurrant powder should be taken as a daily supplement over a long period of time, ideally over 3 months usage.

The extremely high levels of anthocyanins and procyanidins contribute to more effective antioxidants. The latest discoveries about blackcurrants have proven that they contain anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antitoxic, antiseptic and anti-aging properties:

  • Their antioxidant activity protects against conditions such as cardiovascular disease and degenerative age-related diseases.

  • World first discovery: New Zealand blackcurrants contain high levels of cyclic Glycine-Proline (cGP), a key brain nutrient that normalises the Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) function, a hormone that is key to total body health and wellness ([1]New Zealand Blackcurrant Industry) and strongly relates to the prevention of Parkinson’s disease and memory loss.

  • Contributes to protecting cells from free radical damage caused by harmful UV rays, pollution and external oxidation..

  • Reduces muscle stiffness and fatigue, assisting in immune response during exercise. Also helps to increase performance during exercise.

  • Assists with skin Collagen formation, reduces wrinkles and aids cell recovery to help keep skin cells young and tight.

  • strengthens immune system.

  • Lowers blood pressure.

  • Improves blood circulation and blood flow.

  • Reduces the effects of asthmatic lung inflammation.

  • Improves vision.

Origins Of The Blackcurrant


Blackcurrants (Ribes Nigrum) have a rich history, going back hundreds of years. 

In the 17th century, European nobles used the blackcurrant plant to make herbal tea and incorporated the fruit into a range of popular recipes for immunity, anti-inflammation and energy. 

 Mrs. Beeton's cookbooks, widely regarded as the kitchen bibles of the 17th century, often incorporated blackcurrants in their recipes, showcasing both their deliciousness and nutritional value. As word spread of the benefits of this small but mighty fruit, blackcurrants boomed in popularity across Europe, becoming a symbol for youthfulness and vitality.
Taking root in the land of the long white cloud

It wasn’t long before blackcurrants became popular in other parts of the world. In the 1820’s some of the first British settlers arrived on New Zealand’s shores, bringing with them many treasures, including the precious purple powerhouse. 

Blackcurrants quickly increased popularity. In the 1850’s, an agricultural expert from Nelson developed a unique growing technique that resulted in the cultivation of a superior blackcurrant variety. This technique quickly spread to orchards across the country, and contributed to the rapid development of the New Zealand blackcurrant.  

New Zealand blackcurrants sit at the top of the 'Antioxidant Pyramid'Today, New Zealand is the largest blackcurrant growing country in the Southern Hemisphere. 

A 2010 report by Plant & Food Research found the New Zealand blackcurrant contains approximately 1.5 times more anthocyanins than any of the other 32 varieties of blackcurrant grown around the world. 

Since taking root in the 1850s, New Zealand’s elegant ‘purple pearl’ continues to surprise and delight people the world over.
