A Key Brain Nutrient

World First Discovery in NZ Blackcurrants

Will Benefit Ageing Body and Mind

New Zealand Blackcurrants naturally contain a high level of a Key Brain Nutrient – cyclic Glycine-Proline (cGP) – which is beneficial to the ageing body and mind.

Its time to invest in the health of your brain.

As we age our bodies produce less of the key brain nutrient cGP that helps sustain brain function. Low levels of cGP may be found in neuro-degenerative illnesses such as Parkinson’s research paper (Fan, Dawei, et al. “Supplementation of Blackcurrant Anthocyanins Increased Cyclic Glycine-Proline in the Cerebrospinal Fluid of Parkinson Patients: Potential Treatment to Improve Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 Function.”* Nutrients 10.6 (2018): 714.) and strokes (Fan, Dawei et al. “Plasma cyclic Glycine Proline/IGF-1 ratio predicts clinical outcome and recovery in stroke patients.” *Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology (2019)).

Made from New Zealand blackcurrants high in cGP, Brain Shield™ supplements your brain nutrients helping to maintain your health and active lifestyle.

Associate Professor Dr Jian Guan-MD. PhD found New Zealand Blackcurrants contain high levels of cyclic Glycine-Proline (cGP) Key Brain Nutrient that normalises the insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) function, a key to whole body health, wellness and brain fitness hormone. 

Dr. Guan, who has researched (cGP) for nearly 30 years, says low levels of (cGP) are commonly found in people with age-related issues. “(cGP) can decline with age, so the high natural levels of (cGP) in New Zealand Blackcurrants can help maintain these levels.”

Dr. Guan says “I like to call it maintenance of ageing. This finding about New Zealand Blackcurrants is very exciting because it is something completely natural with the ability to maintain and support a healthy ageing body and mind.” 

Dr. Guan came across “the power of New Zealand Blackcurrants” by chance when researching levels of (cGP) in patients who had New Zealand Blackcurrants added to their diets. She found increased levels of (cGP) after 4 weeks of a daily measured amount of Blackcurrant. 

Our bodies produce the Key Brain Nutrient (cGP) naturally. (cGP) is essential for maintaining the function of an ageing body and mind. Deficient (cGP) function can lead to early onset and more rapid progress of brain ageing and other age-related conditions, such as Rett Syndrome (Devesa, Jesús, et al. “Rett Syndrome: Treatment with IGF-I, Melatonin, Blackcurrant Extracts, and Rehabilitation.” Reports1.2 (2018): 14). 

Vitality™ New Zealand (Brain Shield™ ) is a patented natural plant-based solution made from New Zealand Blackcurrants with other nutrients that have been specifically formulated to deliver the average daily dose required to maintain an optimum level of the Key Brain Nutrient (cGP) in the body as we age.
