Breakthrough for NZ Blackcurrants

09 May 2020

A world-first scientific breakthrough by Associate Professor Jian Guan of the New Zealand Centre for Brain Research has discovered that New Zealand blackcurrant berries contain high levels of cyclic Glycine-Proline (cGP), a neuropeptide, which play a vital role in normalising the body’s main growth and brain function hormone Insulin like Growth-Factor-1 (IGF-1).
