The secret is out; it’s been well known anecdotally that high profile Crusaders and All Black rugby players utilise the power of Blackcurrants for performance and recovery on and off the field.
Now with Crusaders and All Black rugby star Jack Goodhue joining the army of sports professionals backing the benefits of Blackcurrants, we can now confirm what we already knew, and that is high-performance sports nutritionists are backing black (blackcurrants) when recommending functional foods that assist with sports performance and recovery.
Goodhue, who is a big fan of Blackcurrants, was introduced to the benefits of blackcurrants by sports nutritionists, and they now form a regular part of his daily diet.
"The new science that's coming out shows they're going to help you recover, and they're going to help you be fitter by circulating oxygen around your body." Says Goodhue.
Goodhue is joining Blackcurrants New Zealand at the end of the year in promoting the benefits of Blackcurrants at the World Cup in Japan.
It’s great to see an All Black & Crusader hero promoting healthy nutritional New Zealand grown Blackcurrants and using their influence to showcase an Agriculture industry worth millions to the New Zealand economy.
