This remarkable anti-oxidant rich superfood comes from the fruit of the legendary baobab tree (adansonia digitata) known by Africans as The Tree of Life and revered by ancient cultures as a vital source of nourishment to entire tribes. Considered to be the king of superfruits and superfoods, Baobab fruit powder is the first natural bio complex created, dehydrated and stabilized by nature.
Besides the valuable gluten-free dietary fibres, antioxidants and a tons of essential nutrients, it has valuable prebiotics to keep your bacterial ecosystem in a healthy balance. This contributes not only to your health within but also to your skin. Your skin hosts more than 500 species of bacteria alone. This community of bacteria contributes to your immune defense. To keep this bacterial ecosystem in balance contributes strongly to the health of our skin (and to our immune system!). The skin is our first line of defense when it comes to external threats but it is also highly affected by internal processes like stress, anxiety and negative thoughts like worrying and overthinking or anything that is happening to any cells within your body. If this bacterial ecosystem gets disrupted, our skins react with oversensitivity, acne, dermatitis, rosacea and many other visible signs. The skin is your feedback system, so treat it well and keep its bacterial ecosystem healthy by avoiding harsh and harmful substances on your skin and this includes naturals like aggressive essential oils! And help it by keeping our internal bacterial ecosystem in good balance. Prebiotics are food for your probiotics already present in your body.
Prof Terry Bolin, gastroenterologist, states that adequate intake of dietary fibre can help maintain a healthy digestive tract, ease constipation, help with irritable bowel syndrome, haemerrhoids, raised blood cholesterol and diabetes.
Baobab fruit pulp has been shown to assist in maintaining overall health and well-being, particularly the digestive, gastric and bowel systems. A healthy digestive system will aid the absorption of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acid and fortify the health of the immune system.
