Baobab powder is made from the fruit of the baobab tree, which has been known as "the Tree of Life" in Africa for hundreds of years. Even though they live in a harsh environment, baobabs grow wild all over Africa. One of the biggest baobab trees is 98 feet tall and 36 feet wide. Baobab trees are strong and beautiful. They can live for up to 3,000 years and can survive in some of the harshest climates in the world by storing water in their trunks during the rainy season and concentrating important nutrients for longevity in their leaves, bark, fruit, and seeds.
Baobab trees have fruit pods that are full of seeds and a powder that is very rich in nutrients. Baobab powder dries in the pod, is a neutral peachy color, and doesn't need much work. Once the pulp and seeds have been separated, the pulp is milled and put through a sieve. Baobab powder is a raw ingredient, which means it is the purest thing you can get. Baobab powder tastes a little bit sour and is full of vitamins and minerals. It has a lot of vitamins C, B, potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium, and fiber.
When you press baobab seeds, you get a rich golden oil that is used in skin care. Baobab oil has a good balance of omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids that are good for the whole body. It is a good moisturizer for the whole body, but it works especially well on damaged hair and the driest skin.
The baobab tree is very interesting, but what are the health benefits of baobab powder and why are they so strong? Keep reading to find out 15 great things that baobab powder can do for you.
Even though baobab has good nutritional value and eating it is thought to be good for you, there are some bad things about it. Some of the antinutrients in the seeds and pulp, like phytates, tannins, and oxalic acid, make it harder for nutrients to be absorbed.
◉ Immune system - Unlike other animals, humans can't make or store vitamin C on their own, so we need to get it from the food we eat every day.
One serving of Baobab Powder (10g, or two to three teaspoons), gives you:
33% of your daily vitamin C requirement (NRV)
One of the most important things that vitamin C does for us is keep our immune systems strong. This helps our bodies fight off viruses, infections, diseases, and other illnesses. You can get more vitamin C on the go by shaking baobab powder into your orange juice or water bottle.
◉ Digestive health - At any given time, about 40% of people have at least one digestive problem (NHS, 2016). Even though more and more people are learning that fiber is good for our digestive health, only 80% of people in the UK eat enough of it.
Aduna Baobab Powder is almost 50% fibre. Our bodies need two different kinds of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Baobab has both types. Soluble fiber can help lower the amount of cholesterol in your blood because it dissolves in the water in your digestive system.
Insoluble fiber doesn't dissolve. Instead, it passes through your digestive system and makes it easier for other foods to do the same. It also helps keep your bowels healthy and keeps you from having problems with your stomach.
If you want to get more fiber in your diet, try adding Aduna Baobab to your daily meals. This Red Lentil and Baobab Curry is one of our favorite baobalicious recipes.
◉ May Aid Weight Loss by Promoting Feelings of Fullness - Baobab has a lot of fiber and has been shown to make people feel less hungry. This could help people lose weight.
