Baobab powder is the dehydrated pulp from the fruit pods of the Baobab tree. This dry powder dehydrates naturally meaning no harsh manufacturing processes or additives are needed. As a result the nutritional value of Baobab powder isn’t compromised and the product remains totally natural.
The dried powder packs a mean punch in the health food stakes. National Geographic reports that Baobab “contains six times as much vitamin C as oranges, twice as much calcium as milk, and plenty of B vitamins, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, and antioxidants”. Further studies suggest it is high in fibre, electrolytes and can function as a prebiotic. All this nutritional goodness can help to:
- Maintain a healthy digestive tract
- Boost immune system
- Increase energy levels
- Hydrate the body
- Improve skin, hair and bone health
Not only is Baobab powder a standout superfood, but it tastes deliciously sweet too. Try adding a teaspoon into your smoothie, sprinkle it over cereal or blend it into yoghurt daily to reap the benefits of this delicious superfood.
