“Study shows that New Zealand Blackcurrants can reduce mental fatigue”
Planet Health, the leading distributor and marketer of premium natural health products, recommends Lifestream Bioactive Blackcurrant to reduce mental fatigue, following a study by Plant & Food Research, one of New Zealand’s crown research institutes.
Lifestream Bioactive Blackcurrant contains New Zealand (NZ) blackcurrants, which have some of the highest levels of anthocyananins, polyphenols and carotenoids compared to other berry fruits. These demonstrate superior antioxidant capabilities to many other fruit and vegetables including kiwi fruit and broccoli.
The study has shown that, “an extract of New Zealand blackcurrants enriched in anthocyanins can help people stay alert, reduce mental fatigue and work with greater accuracy under mental stress. The anthocyanin phyto-components in blackcurrants are already well known for alleviating and preventing many diseases and chronic illnesses. An earlier study by Plant & Food research found that New Zealand’s blackcurrants have higher concentrations of these compounds than those grown in other countries.”
The New Zealand sun is believed to hold the key to the many benefits of NZ blackcurrants, which include:
- The highest concentration of anthocyanins & polyphenols of any berries
- Three times the concentration of anthocyanins and other phytochemicals of other berries
- Superfood qualites
- No fat
- Low calorific value – ideal for weight loss
- High levels of vitamin C, minerals and antioxidants
- A very low glycaemic index – ideal for people with diabetes
Lifestream Bioactive Blackcurrant has the potential to prevent and even reverse macular degeneration through the bioflavonoids and by strengthening the capillaries that carry nutrients to eye muscles and nerves.
Further benefits of Lifestream Bioactive Blackcurrant:
- Improves poor vision caused by computers & TV screens
