Super Fruit for Brain Health

We're honing in on the power of our key ingredient (blackcurrants) on brain health. 

A recent study by the University of Auckland found that NZ blackcurrants are packed full of a key brain nutrient that helps fight age-related brain conditions and helps maintain whole-body health and wellness. 

Associate Professor Dr Jian Guan discovered high levels of cyclic Glycine-Proline (cGP), a key brain nutrient that normalises the Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) function a hormone in New Zealand blackcurrants.

Dr Guan, has researched cGP for nearly 30 years. People with age-related issues commonly have low levels of cGP, as it can decline with age. Dr Guan came across “the power of New Zealand blackcurrants” by chance when researching levels of cGP in patients who had New Zealand blackcurrants added to their diet. She found increased levels of cGP after four weeks of a measured amount of blackcurrant.

 “I like to call it the maintenance of ageing. This finding about New Zealand blackcurrants is very exciting because it is something completely natural with the ability to maintain the health of an ageing body and mind.

Small but mighty, NZ blackcurrants pack a powerful punch. So many of our team of Shotsters reported in a recent survey feeling so much better since taking them as part of their daily routine.

"My husband and I work approximately 120 hours a week between us. It's hard to keep a balanced diet when we only eat 1 or 2 meals a week together.

My husband had seen you guys on Facebook and thought this would be good for us. I can tell you it has been. Not just because of the extra energy, better sleeping, and clearer skin. But now when we have time together, it's never wasted. Fatigue is a thing of the past. We get out and about and do more things together.

Our moods have improved significantly. Even if we are worn out from a long week, we are not as cranky. I put this all down to our Shots. So thank you."

“I have been taking my shots for about 2 months now. After being sick 8 times this year with colds (yes 8 times!) I was almost at my wits end. Catching public transport to and from work and working in an office open floor plan have not helped when other people cough over you all the time. However, since I started taking my shots every day I haven’t had ONE cold!!!! It has been such a relief and everyone has noticed how much more energy I have (looking a lot brighter in the skin). My partner noticed so much and now he’s hooked too!!! I also got three other colleagues into them.”

“In the mornings I used to drag myself out of bed and felt like I had been run over by a bus. It usually took me a strong coffee and half an hour of just sitting to wake up properly. After about two weeks of taking the shots I noticed I was getting up feeling energised and ready for the day. It has really helped to maintain energy levels throughout the day and I am more inclined to be active as I have more energy! Amazing! I feel content that I am supporting and nourishing my body for myself, my family and my future health.”

Tania Englebretsen

“This product is so amazing. I’ve had a coffee everyday in hand daily (twice sometimes) just to survive since having my first baby 17months ago. I’ve only been taking this for a week, sometimes twice a day depending on how busy the day is, and even after having less than 5hours sleep most times, I no longer NEED coffee and have energy to work nightshift without coffee, no after noon slump, the list of benefits goes on. Thank you so much 🙂 So Grateful.”
