Sujon Blackcurrant Powder a Champion of Sport Ergonomics
(Ergonomics: def: ‘enhancing physical performance’)

One of the world’s leading Exercise Physiology professors (Prof Mark Willems FECSS, Institute of Sport, University of Chichester) has used Sujon Blackcurrant Powder as part of their research to prove that certain berries may be the way of the future for sports ergonomics. The Sujon Powder has been proven effective for both performance and recovery in research results just published (Dec 2016) in ‘The Sport and Exercise Scientist’. The Sujon powder was responsible for the effects on the lactate curve and cardiovascular function in rest. The research resulted from Sujon’s early work in 2011 with the Netherlands National Triathlon Elite Team. A special Sujon powder was developed for that team to use in training trials in Queenstown. The same powder was used in the Willems research in 2016 where one teaspoon a day of Sujon powder enhanced blood flow at rest which may benefit exercise recovery.  For a complete copy of the Sport and Exercise Article click here.

Recover Faster & Train Harder

The Prof Willems research is the latest in a growing volume of research showing that Sujon Blackcurrant powder products have a vasodilatory effect which increases circulation and oxygen delivery. This boosts cardiovascular efficiency, delays the onset of lactic acid production and reduces fatigue. The increase of oxygen delivery to the working muscles allowing for a quicker removal of metabolic waste products, resulting in reduced post-exercise muscle soreness and damage. This faster recovery means you can train harder and for longer.

Leading international sports teams and athletes are using Sujon Blackcurrant Powder who will not train without it now, given its excellent vasodilatory benefits, protection against oxidative stress and reduction in muscle fatigue.

This is supported through the New Zealand based Plant & Food Research scientists who have
discovered an extract from New Zealand Blackcurrants helps protect the body from the stresses of exercise. Researchers have found that the extract has three combined effects: minimises muscle damage by modulating oxidative stress, reducing inflammation and potentially enhancing the body’s natural defences against disease. Click here to read more about this trial.

For best results we recommend taking a heaped teaspoon of our Sujon Blackcurrant Powder or two Sujon Blackcurrant capsules 1-2 hours prior to exercise and one heaped teaspoon or two capsules immediately after training.
