Abstract Conclusion
Do you spend a lot of time in front of your computer?…
I know after a long day in the office, a shoulder massage would just be heaven! However, research now shows improvement from taking Blackcurrants, which help with muscle fatigue as a result from typing. The results of this study suggest that intake of Blackcurrants may improve shoulder stiffness caused by typing work by increasing peripheral blood flow and reducing muscle fatigue. So next time you’re feeling the pain from a hard days work, try some blackcurrant powder, which can be taken in many tasty ways, see here for some recipes… http://www.youtube.com/sujonberries#p/a/u/1/_XRGPH5IKZM

Do you suffer from asthma? Then maybe you should try blackcurrants… Latest research findings support the potential for blackcurrant polyphenolic compounds to reduce eosinophil recruitment and alleviate eosinophilic-driven airway inflammation, which means blackcurrants are GOOD for asthma sufferers!

Abstract Conclusion
Our latest research findings support the concept that consumption of blackcurrant anthocyanins alleviate oxidative stress, and may, if given at the appropriate amount and time, complement the ability of exercise to enhance immune responsiveness to potential pathogens.

… and in scientific speak – Short-term blackcurrant extract consumption modulates exercise-induced oxidative stress and lipopolysaccharide-stimulated inflammatory responses.
