New Zealand blackcurrant (NZBC) extract is a rich source of anthocyanins and in order to exert physiological effects, the anthocyanin-derived metabolites need to be bioavailable in vivo. We examined the plasma uptake of selected phenolic acids following NZBC extract supplementation alongside maintaining a habitual diet (i.e., not restricting habitual polyphenol intake). Twenty healthy volunteers (9 females, age: 28±7 years, height 1.73±0.09 m, body mass 73±11 kg) consumed a 300 mg NZBC extract capsule (CurraNZ™; anthocyanin content 105 mg) following an overnight fast.
