Price: From $9.76 to $63.00
Hailing from Africa, this ancient super fruit is beginning to gain attention and momentum due to its abundance of presumed health benefits.
Baobab fruits dry on the branch, making a powder-like superfood in its natural state. This powder is nutrient-dense and has been thought to include a multitude of health and beauty benefits. In fact, it is said that a 100 g. serving of Baobab Powder can contain nearly 500 mg. of Vitamin C, which is 10-times the amount found in a similar serving of oranges. This abundance of Vitamin C can aid in supporting skin elasticity, weight loss, heart disease and liver damage.
Baobab is more than just a good source of Vitamin C; 100 g. of the powder also contains 80% of the Daily Value of Copper, 52% of the Daily Value of Iron, 35% of the Daily Value of Potassium and 12% of the Daily Value of Zinc. Baobab Powder is also made up of both soluble and insoluble Fiber. The body requires both Fiber types, and Baobab is made up of 25% of each type. This source of Fiber can help the body maintain a healthy digestive system, which can assist in regularity and weight management.
Baobab is also a healthy source of prebiotics and antioxidants. The prebiotics present in one serving of Baobab Powder can sustain the good bacteria in the body, which is necessary for digestive health. In terms of antioxidant content, Baobab Powder contains more than twice the amount per gram than goji berries, and more than blueberries and pomegranates combined. This prime source of antioxidants can improve immunity and energy levels, as well as provide an iron boost.
Traditionally, Baobab was used to treat many common ailments in African culture, including fevers, Malaria, Vitamin C deficiencies and much more.
