Human Clinical Study
Randomized, double-blind, crossover trial

Study Setup Participants: 14 male & 9 female Duration: Ingestion
before a heavy meal
Dosage: 150 mg, 300 mg, or 600 mg Blackcurrant extract / day
Key findings Consumption of blackcurrant extract in amounts roughly equivalent to 100-g blackcurrants reduced postprandial glycemia, insulinemia and incretin secretion, which suggests that inclusion of blackcurrant polyphenols in foods may provide cardio-metabolic health benefits
