Pokonobe's Specialty Natural Oils


The Black Currant is a European plant that grows hanging yellow flowers as well as black fruit. The oil possesses linoleic and gamma linolenic acid.
Black Currant Seed Oil is not suitable for cooking; rather it is taken as an oral supplement. It is claimed to improve the immune system and to help develop resistance to infection and viruses. It is also claimed to reduce inflammation, and to improve morning stiffness in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Other claims are that Black Currant Seed Oil produces prostaglandins in the body, which seem to have a great effect on the cardiovascular system, that it counteracts blood vessel constriction, helps to lower high blood pressure, and inhibits platelet/vessel wall adhesion.

In addition to all this, Black Currant Seed Oil is claimed to help alleviate menstrual cramps and reduce the symptoms of PMS, including depression. It may also have an effect on the female body’s production of estrogen, which influences both PMS and menopause.

Lastly, Black Currant Seed Oil may help to alleviate chronic inflammatory skin conditions and dermatitis.
