Baobab is the fruit of Africa's 'Tree of Life.' The only fruit in the world that dries on the branch, we simply harvest and sieve to produce a 100% natural and organic powder that is exceptionally nutrient-rich, supporting a wide range of benefits.
Baobab powder is a rich source of Vitamin C, which contributes to normal:
- Energy release
- Immune function
- Healthy, glowing skin
It is also almost 50% fibre (half soluble and half insoluble) and contains more antioxidants than any other whole fruit.
As it is a natural source of these nutrients, it is more bioavailable than manufactured vitamin supplements, meaning our bodies can absorb the nutrients more easily, ensuring a greater uptake.
Plus baobab has a delicious sweet and citrussy flavour - a bit like healthy sherbet! If you haven't tried it yet... what are you waiting for!
The top health & beauty benefits of baobab:
The human body can not make its own vitamin C (unlike other animals), so we need to make sure we get a good supply from the foods we eat every day.
A single serving of Baobab Powder (10g or 2-3 teaspoons) provides:
- 33% of your daily Vitamin C requirement (NRV)
Vitamin C is essential to the effective functioning of our bodies for a number of reasons. It contributes to normal:
- Collagen formation supporting healthy skin, teeth, gums, cartilage, bones and blood vessels
- Energy release, energy-yielding metabolism and reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Immune function
- Functioning of the nervous system and psychological function
- Protection of cells from oxidative stress
- Absorption of iron vitamin C actually increases your body's absorption of iron, which is why vitamin C-rich baobab and iron-rich moringa work so well together
80% of people in the UK don’t eat enough fibre - a habit that often starts in childhood and carries through to our adult life.
Baobab is almost 50% fibre. There are two types of fibre that your body needs: soluble and insoluble - and baobab contains equal quantities of both.
The soluble fibre in baobab helps slow down the release of sugar into the blood stream, reducing energy spikes.
Fibre can help maintain a healthy digestive system including bowel regularity and can be helpful for weight management as it helps you feel fuller for longer.
According to The Journal of Nutrition, Baobab has the highest antioxidant content of any fruit.
Baobab powder has twice the antioxidants gram per gram of goji berries and more than blueberries and pomegranates combined.
Antioxidants are essential for protecting, repairing and preventing cell damage. Antioxidants are essential for supporting the ageing process of the skin - particularly over the long-term. They counteract oxidative stress and the effects of free radicals . Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen causing skin dryness, fine lines, wrinkles and premature ageing.
Baobab is packed with antioxidants and vitamin C which supports collagen formation (see above) - helping give you radiant glowing skin.
