Cacao Fruit Benefits – Superfood Status
Cacao fruit puree doubles the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.
Cacao fruit is rich in antioxidants and has very powerful anti-inflammatory properties, as well as nutritious vitamins and minerals. In fact, according to a recent study conducted by Brunswick Labs, scientists found that cacao fruit pulp, “abounds with proven antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.” Moreover, when tested on human cells cacao pulp, it reached twice the inflammatory inhibition level of curcumin. Brunswick labs went on further to state, “The outlined pioneering testing results indicate that cacao fruit pulp abounds in functional constituents, which are responsible for its proven antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.”

Moreover, cacao fruit peel has even higher antioxidant power than cacao fruit puree, rivaling that of cacao beans and greatly exceeding the antioxidant levels of other superfoods.
But what does this really mean? Nationally recognized laboratories have certified very high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) levels for different cacao components. ORAC levels are a measure of the antioxidant power of a substance and antioxidants are known to help blood vessels dilate, carry more oxygen to the brain and heart, increase performance, and protect cells from aging. Antioxidant levels correlate with abundant anti-inflammatory potential. Add to this that cacao fruit contains theobromine, proanthocyanidins, catechins and other phytonutrients, as well as other vitamins, minerals and fibers and it’s easy to see why the cacao fruit is considered the “food of the gods” and a superfood of the superfoods!
