Description: Blackcurrant buds macerated
What are blackcurrant buds?
Blackcurrant buds are the young, tender stems that grow from the blackcurrant shrub (Ribes nigrum L.) in spring.
The blackcurrant shrub is native to the damp woodlands of central Europe, but is cultivated in many temperate and cool parts of the world.
Its fruit is a dark, fragrant and delicious berry with edible, purple-coloured flesh, glossy skins, enveloped by the calyx of the flowers from which it emerges. Its purple-black juice has an acidic aroma. Because of its slightly bitter, tangy taste, it is tricky to consume the fruit raw, but it is used in baking as an ingredient for sorbets, jellies, jams and cakes. In France, the berry is used to make a liqueur called crème de cassis, and the blackcurrant bush is known there as a cassissier2.
Blackcurrant buds are prized for their vitamin C, flavonoid (powerful antioxidants) and amino acid content.
What are the main components of blackcurrants?
This plant contains several components:
Blackcurrant leaves contain flavonoids, phenolic acids, proanthocyanidins, carotenoids, essential oil and vitamin C, while its fruit is notable for its anthocyanin, organic acid and vitamin C content2.
Blackcurrant seed oil is mainly made up of linoleic, linolenic and gamma-linolenic acids2.
Its buds, also known as leaf buds, are widely used for their flavonoid and essential oil content, and because they contain plenty of vitamin C and amino acids such as lysine and arginine2.
What are blackcurrants used for?
The benefits and properties obtained from consuming blackcurrant macerate include:
- Rich in antioxidants: Blackcurrant buds are an excellent source of antioxidants. They are notable for their vitamin C and flavonoid content, which helps to combat oxidative stress in the body and protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals3.
- According to tradition, blackcurrants aid urination, and can therefore be helpful for urinary complaints4.
- Useful for the immune system: As a plant rich in vitamin C, it can strengthen the immune system3, which can help combat colds and other complaints4.
- Benefits for skin: Blackcurrant’s antioxidant content1 can help to make skin healthier3 and help to reduce the signs of ageing.
How to take Blackcurrant buds macerate?
This liquid food supplement is very simple to take. Consuming just 2.5 ml of the product one to three times per day, on its own or diluted in water, is enough.
It is an easily portable supplement that can be taken anywhere for easy use.
When it comes to side effects, blackcurrant macerate does not have any contraindications, provided you follow the recommended use on the labelling.
Can Blackcurrant buds macerate be combined with other food supplements?
Anastore’s Blackcurrant buds macerate can be combined with other food supplements designed to reduce and mitigate the effects of ageing, and with other supplements aimed at boosting immunity.
To enhance its anti-aging effects, we recommend combining it with Coenzyme Q10 capsules, which in addition to delaying cellular ageing also act as an immune system aid5.
To strengthen the immune system, we also recommend combining this blackcurrant macerate with our food supplement containing Echinacea, a plant that has traditionally been used to give the immune system a natural boost6,7.
