    of the fruit was found to slow down cholesterol accumulation in the cells associated with hardening of the arteries Furthermore blackcurrant consumption increased the levels of some of the bodies protective enzymes and antioxidant systems Professor Michael Aviram who led the team involved in the study says To find such a high level of antioxidants packed into this super little berry is an exciting and significant breakthrough in heart health The blackcurrant is so easy to enjoy and therefore the perfect way to protect ourselves from nasty free radicals which we so regularly consume from pollution Further research to support the heart health benefits of blackcurrant consumption has been highlighted in a recent publication by a group of German and Spanish scientists In this study participants were given a high energy meal containing huge amounts of cream and sugar followed by a blackcurrant rich or a blackcurrant free smoothie Consumption of the Blackcurrant enriched smoothie resulted in a reduced uptake of the complex fats triacylglycerols TAG in the blood post meal The reduction of fatty acids indicates yet another beneficial effect of the blackcurrant as high blood TAG levels are associated with an increased risk of arterial inflammation and degenerative heart disease progression Blackcurrants are traditionally rich in health promoting antioxidants called anthocyanins which give the fruit their distinctive dark purple colour The darker the blackcurrant the more anthocyanins it contains so ultimately the better it is for you British blackcurrants are grown and bred especially for their deep colour making them extra good for you Whilst British blackcurrants can only be found fresh during their season due to start imminently in July their health benefits can be reaped all year round Whether it be blackcurrant juices cordials yoghurts or frozen fruit they still contain the same widespread array of

    s immune defences and increasing the risk of muscle damage Researchers uncovered that the compounds found in blackcurrants had the potential to minimise muscle damage modulate inflammation and even enhance the body s natural defences against disease The study led by Dr Roger Hurst at New Zealand Institute for Plant Food Research examined untrained subjects undergoing moderate exercise The results showed that those who took the blackcurrant extract exhibited reduced signs of oxidative stress and muscle damage and modulated inflammation It has been shown that moderate regular exercise boosts natural immunity and in this study the changes to inflammation indicate the blackcurrant extract enhances this effect The positive link between blackcurrants and exercise has been previously highlighted in studies in Japan where scientists evaluated the blackcurrants ability to reduce inflammation in muscle groups related to sustained keyboard typing This research flagged the potential of blackcurrants to reduce lactic acid build up in muscles during exercise Results have indicated that the compound responsible for providing these results is likely to be the flavonoids within blackcurrants antioxidants including anthocyanins which give blackcurrants their brilliant black red colour Dr Derek Stewart of the Scottish Crop Research Institute commented This initiative is exciting in

    by which this may occur The researchers identified that the component epigallocatechin a known antioxidant and a major component of proanthocyanidins found in blackcurrants reduced inflammation in the lung tissue Dr Roger Hurst a spokesman involved in the study at the Plant and Food Research Company says Epigallocatechin completely controls the inflammation It brings the inflammation to an appropriate level so that the cells are behaving normally again which is quite amazing to us Their preliminary results now published in a major scientific journal Molecular Nutrition and Food Research suggest epigallocatechin may have the ability to work with the body to fight its own natural defence mechanism in order to suppress long term lung inflammation The study shows that epigallocatechin found in blackcurrants works in conjunction with other natural immune responses that occur at the same time to reduce inflammation To find natural compounds that potentially reduce lung inflammation and complement the body s own immune response is an exciting breakthrough says Dr Hurst Should we discover more about how this actually works we may eventually develop foods containing these compounds that could provide more natural alternatives to assist conventional drug treatments for asthma and even other allergic reactions Jo
