Unsweetened Blackadder Blackcurrant Juice contains all ‘Blackadder’ Canterbury grown blackcurrants. Blackadder blackcurrants are a natural source of antioxidants including polyphenols and vitamin C (ORAC 2,900μmole TEAC/200ml after dilution) and when diluted as directed and consumed as part of a healthy diet, the vitamin C contributes to:
- the normal immune system function
- the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
Vitamin C may also help to reduce tiredness and fatigue and help with cell protection from free radical damage. There is emerging scientific evidence that polyphenolic fruit compounds have a role in antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune mechanisms in the human body. READ MORE in Health & Wellbeing
Barker’s Unsweetened Blackcurrant Juice is made from over 950 squeezed Canterbury blackcurrants, bottled on a corner of our original family farm here in Geraldine, South Canterbury.
NOTE: Barker’s Blackadder Blackcurrant Juice is known to contain Mono-Amine Oxidase (MA0) inhibitors which is why it is thought to be so useful in protecting and supporting healthy brain function. However these same inhibitors (found in some antidepressants) can interfere with certain medications so people being treated for conditions such as Parkinsons, should consult their medical professional before consuming Blackadder Blackcurrant Juice. It is unknown if these same MA0 inhibitors are present in other blackcurrant varieties so if the medication you are on has a warning to avoid taking MA0 inhibiting products, the safest approach is to avoid consuming any varieties of blackcurrants.
