Black Currant Seed General Information
Black Currant fruits have been commonly used by the Russians to make wine, while in Siberia, they use the young leaves to make common spirits that resemble brandy. Goats eat the leaves and bears like the berries, which are said to have medicinal properties. The history of the Black Currant plant in the U.S.A. is long and very interesting. Back in the early 1900’s the Black Currant was banned from growing. The ban was enacted when it was discovered that Black Currants helped to spread the tree disease White Pine Blister Rust, which threatened the then booming U.S. lumber industry. In 1966 the ban was lifted so individual states could ban or not. Since the ban took place Black Currant is not abundantly known like in Europe or the UK. In the 19th Century it was used widely in the US. It was found that many of the Native Americans used Black Currant for many issues. Such as, the root for kidney problems, a tea to treat uterine problems, use of the root bark to expel intestinal worms, or eating the berries to counter constipation and some ground the internal bark to make a poultice for swellings; if the skin turned yellow as a result it was considered strong enough. In the United Kingdom during WWII most fruits rich in Vitamin-C became almost impossible to obtain (like oranges). Since Black Currant berries are a rich source of Vitamin-C and are suitable for growing in the UK climate, the British government encouraged the cultivation.

Black Currant Seed Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Black Currant fruits are a good source of vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals. The seeds of the fruit contain an omega-6 fatty acid called gamma linoleic acid (GLA). GLA increases the body’s production of prostaglandin E-1 which helps increase blood flow, decrease blood clotting, and reduce inflammation. Black Currant fruits help increase bodily resistance to infections and are a valuable remedy for treating colds and flu. The fresh or vacuum-sealed juice, helps stem diarrhea and calms indigestion. The leaves encourage the elimination of fluids that reduces blood volume, and in turn, lowers blood pressure. An infusion can be used to treat rheumatic pain and whooping cough. Black Currant leaves can be used externally on slow-healing cuts and abscesses, and as a gargle for sore throats and mouth ulcers. A decoction of the bark has been used to treat hemorrhoidal tumors. Black Currant seed oil has been used to relieve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. Here are a few areas where the Black Currant Oil is very important and why they work.
  • Skin Disorders – The anti-inflammatory properties are effective against skin irritations when take orally. The Skin Study Center in Philadelphia found that the Black Currant Seed Oil helps with dry skin disorders. The gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) protects against the water loss that contributes to itching and other symptoms associated with dry skin.


  • Cardiovascular Disorders – There has been two Canadian studies that have shown the omega-6 fatty acids lowers blood pressure. This is done as the prostaglandins counteract the constriction of blood vessels.


  • Women’s Health Problems – Since prostaglandin regulates the menstrual cycle it is helpful before and during menstruation. Gamma-linoleic acid produces anti-inflammatory prostaglandins as opposed to inflammatory prostaglandins; this leads to lessening of the severity of premenstrual cramps.


  • Rheumatoid Arthritis – As an anti-inflammatory agent it works well by decreasing the morning stiffness in the joints. The British Journal of Rhemuatology has stated that it may also be effective because of a “reduction in the secretion of the inflammatory cytokines (a source of inflammation) 11-1 and TNF-alpha.” By preventing their production, the oil offers some relief.
