Although more study is needed, limited research suggests that black currant might help:

  • Lower total cholesterol, lower triglyceride levels, and increase HDL “good” cholesterol
  • Lessen muscle fatigue after repetitive tasks
  • Help relieve symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis such as joint pain, stiffness, and tenderness; this may lessen the need for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ( NSAIDs) and may improve function.
