The naturally occurring vitamin C in berries is a well-known complement to collagen that maximises the absorption of collagen into the bloodstream.
These two are a winning combination to improve skin health, support joints, prevent injuries and enhance exercise performance.
The wild caught marine collagen in Wild Collagen Reds is a type of protein that is derived from Russian cod fish. It is rich in amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein and are important for maintaining healthy skin, hair, nails, intestinal lining and joints. Blackcurrants, on the other hand, contain high levels of Vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants.
Some studies have suggested that blackcurrants may have potential health benefits, including:
Supporting brain health:
Some studies have suggested that blackcurrants may have neuroprotective effects and may help improve cognitive function (I will be needing this for my upcoming exams). Something I am getting very passionate about the more I study, the brain and nervous system is so dang cool!
Improving cardiovascular health
Blackcurrants contain anthocyanins, which are antioxidants that may help improve blood flow and lower blood pressure.
Enhancing exercise performance
Some research suggests that blackcurrants may improve endurance and reduce muscle damage during exercise, which can help improve athletic performance.
Blackcurrants contain compounds that may help reduce inflammation in the body.Improving skin health: The vitamin C and antioxidants in blackcurrants may help protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays and pollution, and also may help improve skin elasticity and hydration.
If you are anything like me and really value health, try finding blackcurrants or other dark berries at your local organic markets. Food is medicine and a prevention.
