Blackcurrant anthocyanins have been scientifically proven to support cardiovascular endurance by aiding the body to efficiently pump oxygenated, nutrient rich blood to the muscles, and remove waste products like lactic acid, resulting in improved endurance and athletic performance.


Blackcurrant anthocyanins promote faster recovery through muscle adaptation activated by the unique ratio of cyanidin and delphinidin anthocyanins found only in New Zealand blackcurrants. When taken as a pre-workout your body gets a head start on its recovery.

Good eye health is particularly important in sports and to mitigate the impact of prolonged screen time and aging process.

IMMUNE DEFENCE, because no one has time for taking days off doing the things they love.

Blackcurrants are naturally high in antioxidants, including Vitamin C. Along with the anthocyanins in blackcurrants, these antioxidants can help to give your immune system a boost, allowing your body to fight infection and viruses more effectively. Blackcurrants are also rich in an omega-6 fatty acid called gamma-linoleic acid.

A unique berry from New Zealand

New Zealand blackcurrant benefits come from their exceptionally high concentrations of anthocyanins because of the high UV exposure and climatic conditions found in this part of the world. Anthocyanins are responsible for the dark purple pigment on the skin of a blackcurrant berry and are also the active compound delivering a biological effect.

A powerful natural pre workout women and men thrive on.

We are committed to ensuring that users of our products are receiving the guaranteed dose of 120mg of Adaptive Blackcurrant Anthocyanins.

We protect the Blackcurrant benefits by packaging individual doses in a single serve grab-and-go packet containing the exact amount of blackcurrant anthocyanins to deliver the proven biological effect.

Easy to travel with and TSA friendly.

Many other natural pre workouts are in juice format, however when antioxidants are stored in liquids the active compounds start to oxidise and the effectiveness of the product is compromised. We are committed to our powdered format to ensure there is no oxidation of the active anthocyanins.

When ready to consume the pre workout is easy to prepare, simply cut open the packet with scissors and combine with 8oz of water.

For those who like it a bit sweeter, try adding it to apple juice.
