HOW BAOBAB BENEFITS HEALTH
HOW BAOBAB BENEFITS HEALTH-
As your Portland Personal Trainer we are going to learn about Baobab. Baobab fruit grows in pods and has a tart, sweet taste. The fruit, a white pulp, dries naturally while the pods are still hanging from the tree. Once the pods are picked and broken open, the pulp is taken out and made into a powder that can easily be packaged and transported. Some powders are sterilized or otherwise processed, the natural, raw powder is also available. Dried baobab fruit powder is rich in antioxidants, like vitamin C, high in potassium, and it contains good amounts of calcium, magnesium, and protein. Its also rich in fiber, which makes up about half of each serving. The fiber acts as a prebiotic, helping to maintain healthy bacteria in the gut.
