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.
