THE SCIENCE:
Research shows blackcurrants may help improve:
  •     Recovery & Performance in Exercise
  •     Control Muscle Damage & Soreness
  •     Assist & Enhance Immune Protection
  •     Asthma
  •     Diabetes
  •     Eye Health & Vision
  •     Cancer Prevention
  •     Lifespan
  •     Brain Function

Recent studies have shown blackcurrants to contain higher levels of antioxidant (orac) than 24 other tested fruits. Antioxidants are well known for protecting the body from harmful free radicals absorbed through metabolic processes within the body that cause tissue damage.

Vitamin C is not produced naturally by the body and is a powerful antioxidant in its own right. Blackcurrants contain higher levels of vitamin C than any other commercial fruit or vegetables.

Interesting facts on Blackcurrants;
  •     Blackcurrants contain approximately twice the antioxidant activity of blueberries and considered one of the best sources of antioxidants.  
  •     Oranges have always been thought to be the richest source of Vitamin C. However, blackcurrants actually supply up to four times more Vitamin C than oranges.
  •     A number of studies by Japanese scientists link blackcurrants to a range of health benefits. Researchers at Hirosaki University found that the anthocyanins found in NZ blackcurrants at high levels, help to maintain optimal eye health. A recent study also found that dark rings under tired eyes were reduced after consuming blackcurrant extracts. The polyphenols in blackcurrants are believed to improve blood circulation.

Research from the NZ Institute for Plant & Food Research suggests that blackcurrants help to reduce inflammation, boost our immune systems and help us to recover from the impact of exercise.

New research shows NZ Blackcurrants can keep your brain healthy! Researchers say New Zealand blackcurrants can keep people mentally young and agile, and aid in managing the effects of depression and Parkinson's disease.

THE ORCHARD:
ViBERi organic Blackcurrants are grown in some of the world's best soils in South Canterbury, New Zealand.

South Canterbury is an ideal location to grow blackcurrants and red currants. Blackcurrants require a cold winter, a mild summer, good free draining soils and year round moisture. In these regards, the fertile alluvial plains of South Canterbury, along with the pure water from the majestic Southern Alps provides the ideal conditions for blackcurrants.

ViBERi organic blackcurrants and red currants are grown in an organic certified orchard next to Pleasant Point, two hours south of Christchurch.

The area is famous for its high quality Blackcurrants containing some of the highest levels of anthocyanins (a type of anti-oxidant) in the world. This is because of South Canterbury's unique mix of high sunlight hours, fertile soils and excellent rainfall.

ViBERi New Zealand Limited grow the only significant ,commercial, organic crop of blackcurrants in New Zealand* and are proud of it. Going Organic was a big step but - in the words of grower Tony Howey - "It gives our buyers peace of mind and infuses the Blackcurrants with a richer taste." Tony is passionate about growing foods he knows taste great and keep people healthy!
