GOOD GUT HEALTH
Baobab has extremely high soluble and insoluble dietary fibre content. Both these fibres are very important for your gut health. Soluble dietary fibres stimulate the growth of intestinalmicroflora necessary for good digestion, allowing you to absorb more nutrients from your food. The insoluble fibre in baobab powder provides the roughage necessary for the movement of food through your gastrointestinal tract.
Baobab is rich in Vitamin C which is vital for the support of your immune system. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that our bodies can’t produce which is why it needs to be replenished daily, keeping you strong and healthy by giving your defences a boost against disease and infection.
Stabilises blood sugar
Baobab has a stabilising effect on blood sugar especially when consuming high starch foods. It is rich in polyphenols and just a few tablespoons can help manage blood sugar levels. Mix a tablespoon of baobab powder with water or milk and drink this with your meal. You can also add baobab powder to fruit juices to help slow down the release of sugar into your blood
Slow Release of Energy
Baobab Powder is a valuable supplement for long distance and endurance athletes. Not only does Vitamin C help boost immunity, it also helps to slow the release of energy from food, reducing tiredness and fatigue and supporting a healthy metabolism.
Increases Satiety and weight loss
Adding baobab to certain foods can help reduce feelings of hunger, allowing you to feel fuller more quickly and thus reducing the amount of food you eat. Just mix a tablespoon of baobab powder into a paste, then add water or milk to make a quick satisfying drink. You’ll already feel full before you have eaten your meal!
WHERE IS OUR BAOBAB POWDER FROM?
Our baobab powder is locally sourced.
Baobab powder comes from the baobab tree fruit pod. Did you know it can take a baobab tree up to 200 years before it produces its first hard, green-brown velvety pod-shaped fruit? We get our baobab fruit powder from EcoProducts, a South African company based in the Limpopo, the heart of baobab country.
They work closely with over 500 rural Venda women, providing them with an income to support their livelihoods. Only 10% of the fallen fruit is harvested, ensuring no trees are damaged in the harvesting process, nor is their ecology disturbed in any way.
EcoProducts sells baobab powder in bulk, so if you want a few tons, or want to start up your own brand, give them a shout.
