FIVE reasons TO EAT
1 THEY HAVE A VERY LOW GLYCAEMIC INDEX
THIS ranks food and drinks based on how much they raise your blood sugar. The sugar from redcurrants is slowly absorbed into the bloodstream, which prevents sugar spikes.
2 REDCURRANTS ARE HIGH IN VITAMIN C
WE need this for the production of collagen in the body to strengthen muscles and skin, and vitamin K for healthy bones.
3 REDCURRANTS CONTAIN MANGANESE
THIS is helpful in fighting off free radicals in the body.
4 THEY ARE ALSO RICH IN COPPER AND IRON
BOTH of these are essential for new blood cell formation. A deficiency of iron can lead to anaemia, fatigue and muscular weakness.
5 REDCURRANTS ARE A GOOD SOURCE OF FIBRE
A GOOD supply of fibre is vital for a healthy bowel.
Healthy choice: Redcurrants
