One of my favorite “superfoods” that I have been wanting to review for some time now on the blog, which is the Super Cacao Powder by Aduna.
Aduna Super-Cacao is a high-flavanol premium cacao powder, sourced from a single-origin cacao from Ghana.
Aduna’s unique blend contains cacao powder from beans that have been specially selected for their high-flavanol content.
Aduna Super Cacao contains a whopping 8 times the flavanol content of regular cacao powder, as a result of the innovative and gentle roasting process.
Scientific research has discovered that cacao flavanols possess a number of heart health benefits such as their ability to improve endothelial function.
Studies have found that two teaspoons of Aduna’s Super Cacao powder daily, can help to maintain the elasticity of blood vessels, contributing to normal blood flow, healthy blood circulation and supporting overall cardiovascular health.
This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200mg cacao flavanols according to studies.
One of my favorite ways to consume the Super Cacao from Aduna is by making a healthy hot chocolate drink with the powder. Generally, i use about a tablespoon of the cacao powder to a large mug and sweeten with a small amount of raw honey to taste.

The Natural Health Blogger’s Review
Many superfood powders on the supplement market are often over-rated and in some cases not worth the money. However, the Super Cacao Powder from Aduna is one of the exceptions and is worth every penny in my opinion.
For those at risk of cardiovascular disease, I believe that a high flavanol cacao powder can be an excellent, evidence-based addition to the diet for supporting cardiovascular health and improving endothelial function.
Personally, i have noticed many health benefits from the Super Cacao powder such as increased energy, improved mood, better circulation and improved exercise tolerance.
The Super Cacao is also an extremely easy superfood to incorporate into the diet, you can eat the powder directly off the spoon, use as an ingredient in healthy food recipes or make a hot chocolate for example as mentioned above.
