Black currant herb extract, benefits, health, effects, plant, supplements, side effects Black currant
This low-lying shrub, found all over Europe, is often somewhat spiny and has black, tasty fruit. The plant's leaves and buds emit a strong, distinctive odor. A tea can be made from the leaves, but the berries contain the most health-promoting potential, perhaps more than red currant and white currant. When you press the seeds, you get an oil high in a nutrient called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an omega-6 fat essential for the body to make a certain inflammation-fighting prostaglandin. Goats are said to like leaves of black currant; bears favor the berries.
