Blackcurrants are lesser-known berries in the States, often only found in jams and teas, but their extensive health benefits alone should make us want to incorporate them more often into our diets. Not only are blackcurrants packed with antioxidants and essential vitamins such as A, B, C and E, but they also have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Adding blackcurrants to your diet can help your sight, skin, heart, joints as well as your overall weight management. If taken in a concentrated form before a workout, (like in our new product Oxitang), an extract from this blackcurrant-based concentrate has been shown to accelerate calorie burning by up to 55%. Adding a few drops of Oxitang to your smoothie in the morning can boost your metabolism throughout the day, control the release of insulin (reducing sugar crashes) and burning more fat.
