Used for centuries by the Japanese as an herbal remedy, Black Currant (Cassis) is known as the King of Berries and has long been recognized as being one of the most health-promoting fruits in the world. Locked inside this super fruit are illness-fighting components including anthocyanins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6. Black Currant berries are also packed with Vitamin Bs, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, calcium, magnesium, beta carotene, dietary fiber, and tons of other helpful vitamins and nutrients. Life Force has carefully chosen the origin of the Black Currant used in Vitali-C Plus in order to optimize health benefits, flavor and color. Grown in an ideal climate in New Zealand, our Black Currant benefits from the country's pure mountain waters and uncontaminated, fertile soils. New Zealand Black Currant scores more than twice as high as blueberries, and six times higher than red grapes in ORAC testing; evidence of the magnificent antioxidant properties of the Black Currant grown in this region.
