The baobab is a tree native to certain regions of Africa, Arabia, Australia and Madagascar.
Also known by its scientific name Adansonia, baobab trees can grow up to 30 meters tall and bear large fruits that are commonly eaten and prized for their delicious citrus flavor.
The pulp, leaves and seeds of the baobab fruit - which is also available in powder form - are associated with many health benefits and are a staple in various recipes and cuisines.
Boabab fruit has a number of health benefits, including:
- high content of vitamins and minerals - baobab powder contains many important nutrients, but it is particularly high in vitamin C, vitamin B6, niacin, iron and potassium.
- promotes healthy weight loss - adding baobab powder to your daily diet will help shed a few extra pounds.
- balances blood sugar - baobab powder will help slow the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, which can prevent spikes and crashes in blood sugar and stabilize levels in the long term.
- improves digestion - baobab is an excellent source of fiber that moves through the gastrointestinal tract undigested and is essential for digestive health.
