Effects of Blackcurrant Anthocyanin Intake on Peripheral Muscle Circulation during Typing Work in Humans

  • Blackcurrant anthocyanin increases resting blood flow
  • Prevents decrease in muscle oxygenation that occurs during exercise
  • Increases production nitric oxide
  • Increases arterial flow to muscle tissue
  • Reduces workload on muscles due to increase blood flow and oxygen supply
  • Facilitates removal of unfavorable metabolites (lactic acid, free fatty acids, etc)
  • Prevents hypoxia and disturbance of oxidative metabolism in muscles
