  1. Physical characteristics and habitual activity scores of participants randomly placed in either the placebo (PLA) or blackcurrant juice (BJ) intervention groups were measured using anthropometric measures and questionnaires. Results are mean ± SEM, n = 20 individuals per group, p value represents statistical difference from placebo group using Student’s 2-sample t-tests
