红/黑加仑及其果汁营养丰富，数百年来一直作为药物和疗愈手段，可以帮助净化血液、预防贫血、逆转肾脏问题，并有益于神经系统。加仑富含抗氧化物、植物营养元素、必需脂肪酸、矿物质和维生素C等维生素。 加仑的维生素C含量是橙子的四倍，抗氧化物含量是蓝莓的两倍。加仑还含有一种稀有的Omega-6必需脂肪酸（γ-亚油酸（GLA）），特别有益于大脑功能，新陈代谢的调节、正常的免疫系统功能和生殖健康（特别是更年期综合征和生育能力）。 加仑中所含的花青素可以显著降低体内炎症水平（以类似于阿司匹林、布洛芬和可的松相似的方式）。患有关节炎、慢性过敏、哮喘、结肠炎和其他自身免疫性疾病的人摄入黑加仑汁可以减轻肿胀并缓解任何不适或疼痛。 加仑还含有醋栗多糖（cassis polysaccharide ：CAPS），该成分具有强大的抗癌特性，进一步增强加仑的健康益处。新鲜的加仑或冷榨果汁是最理想的选择，否则也可以选择干加仑，可以加入果昔，或类似葡萄干一样当零食吃，或浸泡在冷水或热茶中摄入。
Currants and their juice are highly nutritious and have been used medicinally and therapeutically for hundreds of years. They can help to purify the blood, prevent anemia, counteract kidney problems, and benefit the nervous system. Currants are rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, minerals and vitamins such as vitamin C.
In fact, currants have been shown to have four times the vitamin C than oranges and twice the antioxidants than blueberries. Currants also contain a rare Omega-6 essential fatty acid called Gamma-Linoleic Acid (GLA) that is especially beneficial for brain function, regulation of metabolism, proper immune system functioning, and reproductive health, particularly PMS and fertility.
The anthocyanins contained in currants are known to significantly reduce inflammation in the body in a similar way that aspirin, ibuprofen, and cortisone work. Black currant juice is often taken by those who suffer from arthritis, chronic allergies, asthma, colitis, and other autoimmune disorders to help reduce swelling and ease any discomfort or pain.
Currants also contain cassis polysaccharide (CAPS) which has powerful anti-cancer properties which only increases their benefits. Fresh currants (found in the produce department or local farmer’s market) or cold pressed juice (found in the refrigerated juice section of your health food store) is ideal, but when they are unavailable then dried currants (found online or in the dried fruit department of your health food store) can be soaked and added to smoothies, snacked on whole like raisins, or steeped in water for cold or hot tea.
