Black Currant

Black currant (Ribes nigrum L.) belonging to the Glossurariaceae family, is native to Siberia and north-central Europe.
The peel of black currant contains a greater amount of anthocyanins than white and red currants, which have a strong antioxidant activity.


  Anthocyanins give black currants their characteristic dark color. Thanks to its antiradicals activity, it contributes to reduce oxidative stress and cell damage.
The leaves, whose main components are triterpenes and a polyphenol complex, have purifying and diuretic properties. Fruits, rich in vitamin C, flavonoids and anthocyanins, are also useful for their astringent, cardioprotective and immunostimolating action.
