Surrey CCC have signed a new deal with nutritional supplement brand CurraNZ.
The capsules, a concentrated anthocyanin product, are made from New Zealand blackcurrants – which are proven to be one of the most nutrient-dense, nutrient-rich foods in the world.
Blackcurrants in New Zealand are thought to be particularly nutritious due to the high levels of UV in the country – the anthocyanins are the berries’ ‘sunscreen’ and so due to the intensity of the sun, they are stressed into producing high levels of these polyphenols, which act as powerful antioxidants.
As well as this, the product is designed to enhance mental focus and cognitive function, promote gut health and also has anti–viral inflammation control properties.
Surrey CCC Strength and Conditioning Coach Ryan Blake said: “Due to the high physical demand of professional cricket we have introduced CurraNZ into the nutritional program at Surrey CCC. It helps players perform harder for longer and recover faster.”
