Blackcurrant leaf: What is it?

A neglected child?

The first years that Synofit existed (then only Synofit Premium Plus Liquid), Blackcurrant leaves ( Ribes nigrum ) were never so emphasized. After all, the most striking, in itself already unique ingredients of this product were GLMax® liquid Green-lipped mussel and Bio-CM100® Bio-Curcumin . Yet it also contained Blackcurrant leaves .

Later Turmerosaccharides and Boswellia (the latter only in Synofit Premium Plus Liquid) were added to the formula.

Blackcurrant leaf is therefore always a regular ingredient of the successful ones Synofit Premium Plus formula.

About the plant Ribes nigrum

The Blackcurrant, just like the Redcurrant ( Ribes rubrum ), is a member of the Ribes family. The Latin name of the Blackcurrant plant is Ribes nigrum , where ‘nigrum’ refers to the dark color and ‘ribes’ refers to the berries. The plant is found in the wild in large parts of Europe (including the Netherlands) and Asia. You can also buy a shrub in many garden centers, which will then thrive on a bottom of peat, loam, clay or sand. The berries are widely used for making Cassis. Many interesting health benefits have been attributed to the berries, the seeds in the berries, the leaves and even the young flower buds. In Synofit Premium Plus use is made of the leaf of the plant. Also in the Synofit Joint Gel (for external use ) Blackcurrant leaf has been processed. The use of black currant leaves is centuries old, also in the Netherlands.

For joint function

That Blackcurrant leaf has a nurturing effect on joints is an Article 13 claim of the EFSA that can also be found on our packaging. Due to legislation, we are not allowed to elaborate on this on our website. If you want to learn more about the way Blackcurrant leaf is good for joints, then you better consult other sources, for example via Google. We do have information available for health professionals (doctors, doctors, therapists). You can contact the Customer service.

Quality and organic

Synofit also opts for quality with regard to black currant leaves. In contrast to Green-lipped mussel, which is used in its entirety, a extract is used from the Blackcurrant leaf.

This is a 1:10 extract, which means that the active ingredients of 10 times as much leaf have been used (per daily dose of 10 ml, for example, Synofit Premium Plus Liquid 167 mg leaf extract, which comes from 1670 mg leaf). For example, the most important substances involved, the so-called proanthocyanidins (PACs), are present in extra concentrated form.

This is a Blackcurrant leaf that is organic . The extract that Synofit uses for the products of Synofit Premium Plus, Synofit Medium Plus and Synofit Joint Gel is Skal-certified .

Cheap imitation products with Blackcurrant leaf, Green-lipped mussel and Curcumin

More and more (web) shops are offering products that also contain blackcurrant leaf, green-lipped mussel and curcumin. These are actually imitations of Synofit Premium Plus. These (sometimes liquid) products often have an attractive selling price and are of a lower quality , which translates into a different user experience. It is important to be well informed about the actual substantive (quality) differences before allowing yourself to be tempted by such a cheap product. Our advice is to always look carefully at the ingredient declaration . For example, are additives used that do not belong in a natural product? Are there any ingredients whose quality is not clearly defined?
