Originating in Africa, the Baobab tree produces a hard fruit, with a shell like coconut, full of nutritious pulp. Baobab is an exceptional fruit with the ability to naturally dehydrate whilst still on the branch. Requiring no heat or pasteurisation its properties remain intact meaning baobab is unusually nutrient dense.
Rich in iron, potassium, calcium as well as key vitamins B1, B6 and C, baobab is full of essential nutrients and heralded as one of the world’s most antioxidant rich whole fruits.
Baobab boosts your immune system and helps collagen formation in cells.
Baobab is bursting with Vitamin C (three times that of an orange) essential to the effective functioning of our bodies and contributing to normal collagen formation as well as aiding iron absorption. Along with the fruit’s high iron content this contributes to the reduction of fatigue and has a role in the process of cell division – which is why iron rich moringa and baobab work so well together. It also contains nearly 50% fibre, essential for maintaining energy levels and a healthy digestive system.
Rich in vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and B6, baobab contributes to a normal energy-yielding metabolism as well as the normal functioning of the heart and nervous system. It also supports the immune system and nervous system as well as the regulation of hormonal activity.
