Product Description

O2B Whey Blackcurrant is a combination formulation of NZ sourced Whey protein and blackcurrants suitable for sports people and use in smoothies as an excellent source of protein and antioxidants.

Whey protein may provide health benefits to people of all ages due to the high amino acid content. An adequate supply of amino acids is essential to the growth and maintenance of all bodily tissues, including bone, muscle, skin, and nails. Whey also delivers a complete spectrum of whey peptides to assist your immune and antioxidant functions.

NZ Blackcurrants are known as the 'King of Berries' and have many health promoting nutrients that have benefits to visual health, capillary tone, cellular integrity and immunity. With 100 g of blackcurrants providing more than 300% of daily-recommended intake value of Vitamin C it’s not hard to see why Blackcurrants have one of the highest anti-oxidant values (Oxygen radical absorbance capacity- ORAC) of all fruit.

Key Benefits:

  • Tastes Great
  • Assists in weight management

  • Useful tool to prevent muscle wasting during bed rest/convalescence
  • No artificial sweeteners, colours or flavourings
  • Blended with 100% NZ Blackcurrants for potent nutrient hit
  • Complete protein source

 

Whey is a natural concentrated protein source made from cow's milk that provides an excellent source of the essential amino acids needed to fuel your body and maintain lean muscle mass. It is naturally low in saturated fat, making it perfect for virtually anyone.

Blackcurrant powder contains a good source of Vitamin C which is required for the growth and maintenance of tissues, in particular it is needed to maintain the integrity of all mucous membranes and blood vessels throughout the body. It also helps to form collagen which is found in skin, tendons and ligaments. Blackcurrants also contains anthocyanins but also vitamins B and E, they are high in copper and potassium, low in sodium, high in soluble fibre and high in Omega 3 and 6.

Regular consumption of blackcurrants may reduce muscle stiffness and fatigue, support kidney function, support blood flow and blood circulation. Vitamin C is essential for all wound healing, including repair and maintenance of tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone and teeth. Many studies have shown that consumption of fruits rich in Vitamin C and flavonoids help develop immunity against bacteria and viruses, preventing illness and scavenging harmful oxygen-free radicals from the body to help prevent illness and days off work.

I use O2b Blackcurrant Whey protein after my gym sessions and I love what I get out of it. My muscles feel replenished the next day which helps with regular exercising. I believe that they Blackcurrant Whey protein helps me get my protein requirements and so much more! What I love most is that its locally produced with real and wholesome ingredients so I know that I'm giving my body the best whey protein that I can (Posted on 17/09/2017)

The O2B Whey & Blackcurrant was awesome, carried it into the middle of the desert and loaded it in before our compulsory rest, we kept running the entire 120km to a record time - so definately worked alright!*
