I have been using this product for several months. It is extremely effective at controlling my hypertension. I haven't had to use statins forr several years now. Before treatment with statins, my blood pressure was somewhere around 140/90. The best I was able to achieve using statin prescription medicine was around 130/90. My blood pressure levels are now consistently around 120/80 using the raw cacao powder.

I have bought this brand many times and love it! But, I just read an article about cacao powders. It said, "One of the products tested by ConsumerLab was Navitas Naturals cacao powder. They found .950 ppm cadmium in the Navitas sample. There is no nutritive benefit to cadmium -- it is a toxic heavy metal linked to kidney damage, cardiovascular disease, skin disorders and more." The Natural News Lab showed similar numbers. I am going to try the cacao nibs which have lower concentrations.

It tastes both bitter (no chocolate flavour) and as if it has expired....will not reorder.

A little bit disappointed after reading all the glowing reviews...this cacao's color is a little light vs the darker raw organic powder I can get locally and the taste is not so strong...Overall decent but nothing special I think.

The warning message at the back scared me. I like the taste and the quality but the packaging needs improvement. I struggled to reseal the bag until a used a chunk of it.

This is an excellent product. It's a pity that I've never had a bag that will reseal. They need to fix this!

Aukštos kokybės (galima spręsti ir pagal kainą produktas). Bet man sunkiai virškinosi, kai suvalgydavau jausdavos sunkumas skrandyje, gal dėl to, kad kakava - ankštinis produktas ir termiškai neapdorotas skaitosi toksiškas; Very high quality product, although my stomack wouldn't accept it.

I tried this cacao powder as it was cheaper than the first brand i bought and reviews were ok, but although I'm sure the quality is okay I found the flavour lacking not strong at all compared to the gold brand i first bought
