Fleur Cushman - the science behind blackcurrants

This week Mikki talks to Fleur Cushman, co-founder of CurraNZ, the sister company to Health Currancy Ltd, which produce one of the most exciting supplements on the market today that are produced from New Zealand Blackcurrants. Mikki and Fleur have an in-depth discussion on the existing and emerging research behind the health and performance benefits of taking CurraNZ, and what the science really shows us.

Mikki talks to Fleur about how she got in to the supplement industry, and what it is about NZ Blackcurrants particularly (as opposed to blackcurrants grown elsewhere) that makes them particularly special. They talk about the latest research in the performance arena (and why the likes of Dougal Allan, NZ Coast to Coast champion in 2021 (https://dougalallan.com/), swears by them) and their application for improving metabolic and immune health.
