Blackcurrants are very nutritious and have been used medicinally and therapeutically for hundreds of years. They purify your blood to prevent anaemia. Blackcurrants also help to fight kidney problems and benefit the nervous system.
Blackcurrants are rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, minerals and vitamins such as vitamin C. They can also help your body’s immune system. Blackcurrants have been shown to contain four times more vitamin C than oranges and twice as many antioxidants as blueberries. Currants also contain the rare omega-6 essential fatty acid gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), which is particularly beneficial for brain function, metabolic regulation, immune function and reproductive health, especially PMS and fertility. The anthocyanins in blackcurrants are known to significantly reduce inflammation in the body, similar to the effects of aspirin, ibuprofen and cortisone. Blackcurrants are often consumed by those suffering from arthritis, chronic allergies, asthma, cholelithiasis and other autoimmune disorders to help reduce swelling and relieve discomfort or pain. Currants also contain cassis polysaccharide (CAPS), which has powerful anti-cancer properties.
