A great antioxidant, blackcurrant is not only delicious but also has many health benefits! It’s the “super fruit” of the summer!
Blackcurrant contains 4 times more vitamin C than an orange. It is also an excellent source of vitamin E, provitamin A and polyphenols. All these antioxidants will help capture free radicals and prevent accelerated aging.
Remarkable anti-inflammatory, blackcurrant is also recommended in case of joint pain, rheumatism or any inflammatory disease.
Rich in manganese, blackcurrant also participates in reinforcing the respiratory mucous membranes. It would also limit the release of histamine. Combined with its anti-inflammatory properties, it is therefore a formidable natural remedy to fight against allergy.
Blackcurrant is also known for its diuretic properties. It promotes renal elimination and reduces water retention. Its consumption is particularly indicated in case of urinary infection.
Its richness in vitamin C strengthens the body and immune system. Blackcurrant is an excellent anti-infectious.
Finally, in infusion, blackcurrant leaves promote the secretion of cortisol, the stress hormone. Thus, with its “cortisone like” properties, it will be the perfect anti-stress ally.
For all these reasons, this summer, do not hesitate to bet everything on blackcurrant!
