Blackcurrant powder, Drinking Stories
Blackcurrants feral on the steep bank behind my house, inaccessable without powertools and protective clothing
So I lashed out on SUJON Blackcurant powder $40.50 for 189g
Apparently blackcurrants have the highest in anthocyanins
blackcurrants 100g 12,881
green tea 250ml 1,500
New independent research suggests that SuJon New Zealand Blackcurrants are the Number One Super Fruit in the world, being the highest antioxidant cultivated berry. This is due to high intensity of natural UV light, a pristine environment, perfect growing conditions and unique varieties to New Zealand. Being the richest natural source of blackcurrant poly phenols available they also outperform bilberry, acai, goji, pomegranate, grape seed, pine bark and blueberry in antioxidant potency. The table below compares the antioxidant activity in Blackcurrants with other foods.

The USA fish oil probably comes from Chesapeake - George Bush snr has a business crushng coarse fish.
there is a NZ sourced fish oil - more expensive but might be worth avoiding the USA East Coast

(Remember folks USA Swansons mail-order is 5-8 times cheaper than extortionate prices charged in NZ)

These 2 look interesting, but maybe expensive.. Swansons dont have them, so u can bet they'll cost
European Picamilon (50 mg, 3x day) and Pyritinol (200 mg 3x day)..restore neurological function ..
An expensive prescription drug called Nimotop (nimodipine) 30 mg 3-4 xday, can slowly repair cns damage

PPC polyenylphosphatidylcholine prior to alcohol consumption.. protection against ..alcohol-induced liver injury in animals ..
Choline is used by the truckload in processed foods.. it oughta be cheap. in NZ it aint (surprise!)
- probably best to buy in 40 gallon drum... Hope the Estrogens &other shit from Soy arent in the choline
- probably a net benefit. A bit of Estrogen doesnt scare me at my age.
Some more Drinking stories:
Perfect Equation.. patented the extract,.. skin of the prickly pear, Opuntia ficus.
..drank five hours after taking the pill, they experienced less severe hangover
Opuntia ficus indica (OFI) diminishes the inflammatory response .. (Easier to find in Auz than NZ )
The important thing is to take the hangover 'cures' *before* the drinking session, not the next morning
Hangover cures?: feverfew fumaric acid ginger inositol milk thistle niacinamide succinic acid.
