Blackcurrants are known as the ‘King of the Berries’ and have been shown to exhibit many health properties including benefits to eye health, capillary tone, cell integrity and antioxidant activity.

It is believed that it is the polyphenols and anthocyanins contained in blackcurrants which contribute to their potent antioxidant effect. Lifestream Bioactive Blackcurrant capsules are produced from New Zealand blackcurrants which contain some of the highest levels of polyphenols and anthocyanins compared to any other blackcurrants in the world.

Eye Health, Protection and Support
Computer use has now become a necessary part of modern life and with this brings the rise of computer-related eye problems including eyestrain and eye fatigue. The natural effects of ageing can also cause problems with the circulatory system of the eye. The inclusion of dietary blackcurrant anthocyanins helps promote eye health and good vision particularly relating to working with computers and visual display terminals.

Blackcurrants help Capillary Tone
Blackcurrants assist microcapillary circulation and help with capillary tone and flexibility. A healthy blood flow to the brain is crucial for full mental function and helps maintain focus and mental alertness.

In a study conducted by Ghosh D and associates* of the Horticulture and Food Research Institute of New Zealand Ltd, Palmerston North, Blackcurrant extracts demonstrated protective effects on human cells exposed in the laboratory setting to the hydrogen peroxide oxidative challenge. Anthocyanin and non-anthocyanin fractions of blackcurrant were able to protect cells against hydrogen peroxide-induced cell toxicity effects.

Blackcurrant as an Antioxidant
Blackcurrant anthocyanins also exhibit potent antioxidant activity. Antioxidants help to eliminate free radicals. Consuming dietary antioxidants supports the natural potential of your body to remain healthy and keep youthful and helps to maintain cell integrity in the face of free radical damage. There is a powerful 1496 ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) units per Lifestream NZ Bioactive Blackcurrant capsule.

Being the first to bring Spirulina ‘down under’ in the 1980s, LifeStream launched their Aloe Vera products soon after. Along with the Spirulina product line (tablets, powder and capsules) Aloe Vera still remains one of their best selling product lines. LifeStream also offers Alkalising green powders, antioxidant supplements and a range of immune support products.
