- Improved performance – allowing you to go further before tiring
- Dramatically increases fat burning, resulting in up 27% greater fat oxidation during exercise, for improved endurance.
- Reduced recovery time – aids muscles and clears lactate faster
- Reduced DOMS – Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness – or the pain that you feel in your muscles up to 48 hours after the event – is reduced.
- Faster tissue repair Increased blood flow means more nutrients are delivered to cells
- Anti-inflammatory - helps with healing processes
- Anti-oxidant - helps neutralise damaging free radicals that damage the body's cells
- Immune booster – by enhancing immune responses - particularly good for athletes who train hard or travel
Fitness is a core part of your lifestyle. You want to challenge yourself and strive to meet your goals. What if you had a sports supplement that could help improve performance, endurance, fat burning and recovery? You could schedule your fitness routine around your targets, rather than your limits. This all means you can train and work harder, for longer.

- Reduces fatigue and enhances lactate clearance, allowing for greater exercise intensity
- Faster recovery times as result of improved tissue repair and enhanced immune responses. Helps reduce delayed onset muscle soreness
What is CurraNZ?
CurraNZ is made of one thing, and one thing only, blackcurrants. New Zealand blackcurrants have the highest recorded anthocyanin values and antioxidant activity of any berry and they’re low in sugar too.
What are Anthocyanins?
Anthocyanins are the naturally occurring plant compound that gives the fruit their deep purple colouring. Anthocyanins have multiple sport performance and recovery benefits.
Anthocyanins are the compound responsible for increasing blood flow by up to 35%. This results in increased haemoglobin and oxygen uptake and utilisation during exercise. The powerful vasorelaxation effect means your muscles work less hard for the same output, allowing you to really challenge your sporting goals and set new targets.
Ground breaking scientific research shows significant improvements in sporting performance when 'athletes' take CurraNZ. Cycling time trials showed faster completion times up to 8.6% and sprinting trials shows distance covered increase by 10.8%.
Our studies show CurraNZ increased lactate clearance in 64% of participants and reduced fatigue. Athletes’ time to exhaustion increased by 15% and footballers lowered their fatigue index by 12%. These benefits help you to increase your exercise intensity and improve endurance.
Finally, the high antioxidant count of blackcurrants reduces oxidative stress and inflammation, helping reduce muscle damage and soreness during and post exercise. The antiviral and immune boosting abilities of blackcurrants assist speedier tissue repair.
CurraNZ contains 2500 New Zealand blackcurrants per carton of 30 capsules, with a 35% anthocyanin extract formula. This all means you can train and work harder, for longer.
Positive Effect on Blood Flow
Blackcurrants are prized for their positive effect on blood flow. Blackcurrants ‘relax’ the body’s small and large blood vessels which opens up the circulation ‘highway’, resulting in an increase in blood flow around to the body’s vital organs, peripheral tissues, skeletal muscle and even the smallest of blood vessels (such as the eye, whose integrity is utterly reliant on blood flow).
The antioxidant properties in New Zealand blackcurrants protect cells and tissues from stress and damaging aging processesAntioxidants neutralise free radicals that lead to oxidative stress.
Oxidation is a normal and necessary process that takes place in your body. Oxidative stress, on the other hand, occurs when there’s an imbalance between free radical activity and antioxidant activity. When functioning properly, free radicals can help fight off pathogens that lead to infections.
Oxidative stress is a major player in the cause of chronic diseases such as arthritis, Type II Diabetes, neurodegenerative disorders, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, autoimmune and heart disease. Science has attributed oxidative stress as the cause of over 70 well-known diseases.
The superior anthocyanins in New Zealand blackcurrants contain anti-inflammatory properties that help your mind and body to repair and recover
Inflammation is a vital part of the immune system’s response to injury and infection. It’s the body’s way of signaling the immune system to heal and repair damaged tissue, as well as defend against foreign invaders such as viruses and bacteria.
Inflammation is good for you when it stimulates all the necessary healing processes, but harmful when prolonged or occurring in places where it is not needed.
Blackcurrants and their role with inflammation
The beauty of New Zealand blackcurrants used in CurraNZ is their rich blend of anthocyanin and flavonoid compounds that distinguish them from other berries. – and have been shown to stimulate antioxidant and anti-inflammatory processes in the right way, at the right time.
Anthocyanins can enhance immune responses while also controlling and suppressing chronic, harmful inflammation in the body – helping the body repair.
