ABOUT CURRANZ 

No Slip. No Bounce. All Polarised. All Fun.

Stephen Lease was an avid runner equipped with all the running gear he could get his hands on, when he seemed to realise that runners weren’t wearing overpriced high-performance running glasses but just cheap pairs from discount stores. He saw the opportunity for stylish, fun, functional, affordable shades in the running community and launched Goodr.

Goodr was launched in March 2015 with a Kickstarter campaign, shipping badass sunnies from an apartment along with his high school friends and co-founders Ben Abell and Keri Blunt. For the first two years of Goodr, the trio worked full-time jobs whilst growing the brand to the success it is today.

Expanding to over 1,500 stores in 30 different countries, as well as collaborating with major brands such as Warner Bros, The Rolling Stones, and Dunkin’ Donuts, Goodr has become an overnight success. Their high quality sunnies have won several awards including:

  • Runner’s World Gear of the Year (twice!)
  • PGA Buyer’s Choice
  • Men’s Health Best Buy

And in CEO (Chief Executive Octopus) Stephen Lease’s words “We sell fun, not eyewear

CurraNZ is a research-led, first-to-market enterprise that has put New Zealand blackcurrants on the sports nutrition map internationally.

Thanks to collaboration with British, Japanese and New Zealand scientists and over 30 clinical studies, CurraNZ has been identified as one of the breakthrough ergogenic aids of the decade thanks to its unique and potent benefits for active consumers.

WHY USE CURRANZ? 

As the most trusted and proven blackcurrant supplement brand worldwide, CurraNZ delivers proven performance, muscle recovery, fat oxidation and immune-promoting benefits, in one product.

The magic in CurraNZ lies in the blackcurrant bioactives, called anthocyanins. Most people are deficient in these ‘purple’ dietary compounds, which have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and blood flow-promoting properties.

Blackcurrant anthocyanins help prime the body for exercise, by creating an optimum microcellular environment to maximise exercise efforts.

Blackcurrants have one of the highest anthocyanin densities of any fruit, and surpass other common recovery interventions, blueberries, and tart cherries, (see table):

WHY NEW ZEALAND BLACKCURRANTS?

CurraNZ blackcurrants contain 1.5 times the anthocyanins of blackcurrants grown in Europe. New Zealand blackcurrants are one of the most nutrient-rich, nutrient-dense berries grown on the planet, and CurraNZ is the first supplement of its kind to harness these benefits.

The secret lies in the pristine New Zealand growing environment and the strong ultraviolet sunlight, which stimulates the berry fruit into producing higher levels of colour pigments, the anthocyanins.

Small but Mighty.

Offering broad-spectrum actions that removes the need for taking several supplements (such as beetroot and tart cherry for performance and recovery), CurraNZ is popular with endurance athletes of all levels for its fast-acting, convenient capsule with many bonus benefits.

Up to 150kg of fresh blackcurrants goes into each kilo of our high-potency formulation, which is a maximum-strength anthocyanin extract and standardised for dose control.

Supplier to international sporting organisations in elite sport, and endurance athletes such as World Multisport Champion 2019, 2021, Dougal Allan.
