          Aduna Super Cacao for Fitness

          You might think of cacao powder as a tasty ingredient for sugar-free chocolate treats; you may know it is a natural source of antioxidants, but did you know that it can also help improve your fitness? As if you needed any more excuses to indulge in a healthy hot chocolate or cacao shake...! Here's how:

          The heart is the centre of our cardiovascular systems and it is responsible for just about everything that gives our bodies life - transporting vital nutrients, oxygen and water to all of our organs. Without a healthy blood flow, none of our bodily processes can work - whether it be our immune systems, our brains, our mental health, our digestive systems or our muscles.

          When it comes to fitness, maintaining a good flow of oxygen to our organs, muscles and tissues is key to both athletic performance and post-workout recovery and that's where Aduna Super-Cacao comes in. Super-Cacao is the only cacao powder scientifically-proven to support healthy blood flow, circulation and overall cardiovascular health. These amazing heart benefits are thanks to Super-Cacao's high flavanol content. Flavanols are a plant-based antioxidant that support blood flow by helping maintain the elasticity of the arteries. Super-Cacao is made from specially selected high flavanol cacao beans and contains twice the flavanol content of regular cacao powder. 

          Aduna Super-Cacao is also a rich source of protein (almost 23%), which is essential for the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and a source of essential vitamins and minerals that our bodies need for healthy muscles and bones - including potassium and magnesium. A single 20g serving provides 15% of your daily requirement for potassium, which is needed for healthy functioning of the muscles and normal blood pressure. It also provides 26% NRV for magnesium which supports muscle function and helps balance electrolyte levels in the body - important for post-workout recovery. 

          As if that wasn't enough to convince you to make cacao part of your workout routine, a recent study by scientists at Kingston University discovered that epicatechin (one of the main flavanol antioxidants found in the cocoa bean) increases nitric oxide production in the body, which allows exercisers to use less energy when performing cardio and helps them cover a greater distance in less time.
