New Zealand organic blackcurrants are known for their remarkable health benefits. They are packed full of nutrients, have high levels of vitamin C and are naturally loaded with antioxidants and taste delicious!
We don’t call them a superfood for nothing!
We call ViBERi organic blackcurrants a superfood because they contain extremely high levels of Vitamin C, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. If part of a healthy, varied diet they help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Our blackcurrants also contain anthocyanins, the compound that gives our
berries their rich dark purple colour.
Research shows Vitamin C contributes to the following:
- Contributes to iron absorption from food
- Necessary for normal connective tissue structure and function
- Necessary for normal blood vessel structure and function
- Contributes to cell protection from free radical damage
