Abstract

Regular fruit intake contributes to your health. Studies have reported on the health-providing anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of many fruit berries. New Zealand blackcurrant is a dark-colored berry rich in the flavonoid polyphenol anthocyanin. The physiological and metabolic responses at rest and during exercise by short-term intake of anthocyanin-rich New Zealand blackcurrant can provide an indication for the potential to promote health. This mini review will cover primarily the findings of some of our studies using New Zealand blackcurrant with meaningful changes on exercise-induced fat oxidation, cardiovascular function during supine rest, insulin sensitivity, and emission of skin volatile organic compounds. Daily intake of New Zealand blackcurrant has the potential to provide benefits for exercise, health and well-being.
