Cupuacu is a close relative of cacao and has similar benefits, nutrients, and flavor profile. Cupuaçu can be used for similar health purposes. Cupuacu powder contains theobromine, which has strong benefits to the heart and blood vessels.
Plenty of antioxidants can be found in Cupuacu, too, such as epicathecin, quercetin, and theophylline which can be beneficial for inflammation, metabolism, and regulating blood sugars. Some may benefit from the fruit supplement or powder to support certain conditions. Because it is plant-based, cupuaçu, of course, contains fiber, which is great for regulating gut health and digestive function. The powder can be added to juices, smoothies, beverages, or foods for health benefits.
Cupuacu butter benefits for skin
Cupuacu also has incredible value when topically used for skin and hair. The buttery pulp is rich in healthy fats for skin and follicles, helping hydrate and condition dry hair or moisturizes dry skin. The antioxidants it contains can help protect the skin from aging or exposure to irritants, chemicals, or pollutants that wear and tear the skin. Powders can be used to make home products for these purposes, such as salves, creams, or butter.
