Aduna – 100% Organic Hibiscus Powder Review

Aduna - 100% Organic Hibiscus Powder Review

This week’s health food product review and up this time we have the 100% Organic Hibiscus Powder from Aduna.

Aduna are a United Kingdom based retailer of Organic Superfoods including Moringa, Baobab, Cacao, Fonio Super-Grain and many more.

Aduna Hibiscus is a 100% natural powder made from the nutrient-rich red petals of the hibiscus calyx. 

Hibiscus is a natural source of fibre, calcium, iron, plant protein and antioxidants.

Their hibiscus is harvested and processed in Egypt, creating sustainable incomes for almost 100 rural households and ensuring the added value from processing remains within the country.

Studies have found that Hibiscus has a range of biological activities including anticancer, antibacterial, anti-oxidant, nephro- and hepato-protective, diuretic, anti-cholesterol, anti-diabetic, and anti-hypertensive properties. [1]

Research has shown that Hibiscus or Sour tea as its commonly known may be able to lower blood pressure similar to that of some standard anti-hypertensive medications and can be effective for managing blood pressure.

Hibiscus is also beneficial in controlling glycemic status and causes a significant reduction in LDL-cholesterol. [2]

Packed with numerous health promoting phyto-chemicals including anthocyanins, flavonoids(chlorogenic acid, quercetin etc), organic acids(hibiscus acid, hydroxycitric acid, malic acid) and many others.

Evidence-Based Health Review

Firstly I would like to start off the review by once again saying many thanks to Aduna for generously providing us with a sample of their Organic Hibiscus powder to review here at Evidence-Based Health.

I have been a huge fan of Aduna’s superfoods for many years now, especially their high flavanol Super Cacao Powder, which in my opinion is not only one of the best tasting cacao powders on the market, but an excellent superfood for supporting cardiovascular health due to the flavanol content.

One of the things I am always really impressed about when it comes to Aduna’s products is the quality, after years of taking various superfood powders, I can always tell Aduna’s products are very clean and of the highest quality.

Hibiscus is one of my favorite herbal teas and I have been drinking it for years now due to the great feeling of health it gives me.

So when I seen that Aduna had recently released their new Organic Hibiscus powder I knew I had to review it here at Evidence-Based Health.

Taste & Appearance:

The Organic Hibiscus flower powder has a very nice deep rich ruby red colour and is very similar in appearance to the likes of Acai Powder.

However, the Hibiscus powder disperses much better in water than acai powder typically does and the taste of the Hibiscus powder is much nicer too.

Much like Hibiscus tea, the powder has a mild sour tart taste, probably where Hibiscus gets its traditional name of “Sour tea” from.

Effect:

I have been taking Aduna’s Organic Hibiscus Powder for around two months now and I’m really loving the effect so far.

The Organic Hibiscus Powder has fast become one of my new favorite superfoods and I really look forward to the boost and clean feeling of well-being it gives me daily.

About half to one teaspoon in a little bit of cold water a few times a day produces a really nice clean energy boost and a feeling of health.

You can tell the Hibiscus is absolutely packed with antioxidant phyto-chemicals with how great it makes you feel.  Makes me feel really strong and healthy after taking a glass.

Unlike many raw herbal powders which can be harsh on the GI tract, I found the Hibiscus powder extremely soothing and supportive to the entire GI tract/digestive system also.

Great for a nutrient boost for the likes of calcium, iron, protein and fiber, of which it has an impressive content of per 10 gram serving.

The Hibiscus powder is very versatile and can also be added to many foods such as organic live yogurt/kefir, oatmeal/porridge, smoothies and the likes of homemade protein bars for an extra superfood boost or “superflower” should we say in this case.

Overall:

Overall Aduna have converted me with yet another amazing Organic superfood. Hibiscus powder takes the health benefits of Sour tea(Hibiscus ) to a whole other level.

Extremely impressed with the Organic Hibiscus powder and the great feeling of well-being it provides.

I can see Hibiscus flower powder becoming the next big superfood once consumers see how amazing it is for health and how packed it is with an array of beneficial phyto-chemicals.

Highly recommend our readers check out Aduna’s Organic Hibiscus powder and their range of amazing superfood products.
