Why 36 grams
of corinthian currants,
per day?

36 grams of Corinthian raisins correspond to 2 tablespoons. Based on dietary recommendations, this is equivalent to eating a small fresh fruit. Every consumer according to the Mediterranean diet should consume 5 servings of fruits / vegetables. In the clinical studies performed, one of the fruits was selected to be 36 grams of currant per day.

From modern clinical studies published in reputable, international, scientific journals, it is proven that from the integration of corinthian currants in the daily diet and specifically consuming 36 grams per day:

  • There is a significant reduction in blood pressure.
  • A "shield" is created against cardiovascular diseases.
  • Reduce "bad" cholesterol (LDL).
  • The clinical picture of patients with fatty liver is improved and at the same time the inammatory factors in the bodyare inhibited.
  • No adverse effects are observed in diabetics in the context of a balanced diet.

Studies in human colon and stomach cancer cells have shown that the antioxidants in currants inhibit the growth mechanisms of cancer, exerting a chemoprotective effect on human cells.

In addition, currants’ consumption has the ability to reduce atherosclerosis, as found in a study in animal models.

Daily consumption of currants reduces the action of appetite hormones e.g. of ghrelin, resulting in better appetite regulation. Another study showed that people, who consume 36 grams of currants daily, can maintain their weight, as they consume 100-150 calories less during the day, due to the satiety currants cause.
