What is Swanson Superior Herbs Black Currant Extract?

In the UK we have a very special relationship with the humble blackcurrant. It has grown wild here for centuries and we are perhaps best known for a very well known flavoured juice drink that uses up a large percentage of our national supply to make. In the States though, it is a different story.

Widely outlawed for a long time because of the fungal diseases they can carry which kill Pine trees, Blackcurrants are something of a recent phenomenon on the other side of the Atlantic. But a phenomenon they most certainly are. The reason for this is that amidst all the recent excitement around superfoods, the blackcurrant seems to have been overlooked.

  • Freeze dried at source to preserve its nutrients
  • The most potent Antioxidant of the berry world
  • Standardised to 30% Anthocyanins

Recent research shows that the common or garden blackcurrant is actually more nutritious than a range of other super-healthy fruits, such as blueberries, apples and strawberries. Which is why Swanson have teamed up with the people at Just the Berries to create this fantastic new Blackcurrant extract that boasts no less than 30% anthocyanins.

What is Swanson Superior Herbs Black Currant Extract used for?

The blackcurrant is actually originally native to northern Europe and Asia. It comes from a shrub that produces a cluster of tart but sweet berries throughout the summer months. Of course, most of us know it from jams or desserts but they also hold all manner of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants.

The Blackcurrants in Swanson Superior Herbs Black Currant Extract are actually manufactured in New Zealand where they are freeze dried to preserve the anthocyanins (antioxidants) hidden within them.

Ever since being first developed, they have proven a useful tool which predominantly support gut health, vision health and proper blood circulation. There is even research to suggest that blackcurrant anthocyanins can play a crucial role in sports recovery.

Because Blackcurrants possess these high levels of anthocyanins and other polyphenols (as well as heaps of vitamin C), they are a great low-calorie source of vitamin A, potassium and B vitamins thiamine and niacin.

That's why it has been used to treat everything from colds, flu, and fevers to symptoms of PMS. Not to mention its great potential for improving your heart health. Proven to help lower blood pressure, the GLA in blackcurrants can actually help your heart to resist damage at a cellular level, as well as preventing the clumping of platelets in your arteries. Meaning that you can live longer and safer from the perils of heart attacks or strokes.
