Kiwi Superfoods Blackcurrant Skin Extract is full of Anthocyanins.

Anthocyanins may support Eye Health and vision, improved brain function and health and improved muscle recovery times. It may also support improved circulation, lower blood pressure and gut health.
Blackcurrants and their anthocyanins reduce the effects of oxidative stress and are taken by several high performance sports teams, including the All Blacks.
Anthocyanins give blackcurrants their dark colour and act as powerful antioxidants. Blackcurrants contain more anthocyanins than any other commercially available fruit or vegetable. New Zealand’s pristine conditions and mineral-rich environment plus its elevated exposure to UV light results in blackcurrants with higher anthocyanin content than fruit that is grown in other areas.
Blackcurrants also have a high level and complex mix of ?avonoids, phytochemicals and polyphenolics, all shown to have their own positive health benefits. It is in this area some of the most exciting recent discoveries about Blackcurrants have been made.
We now know some blackcurrant varieties, (including the ones used in our product), contain cGP which normalises Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1). (paper to be published 2020). Low levels of cGP are linked with many neuro degenerative disorders such as Parkinson's and Strokes. It keeps your brain young! This perhaps explains the feedback we get from some customers ... of them feeling sharper and experiencing an uplift in mood;
“...I am weaning off my antidepressants that I've been on for years and I am feeling terrific! So, that combined with hardly any hot flushes anymore is honestly fantastic, I can't thank you enough. You don't realise how much it means to me to be off the AD's! Please share my story to anyone but keep me anonymous.”
One daily dose of Blackcurrant Skin Extract (2 capsules) takes over 90grams of fresh blackcurrants to produce and delivers 200mg of anthocyanins and 400mg of Vitamin C.
