BAOBAB (ADANSONIA DIGITATE L.) IS A SYMBOL OF LIFE IN THE AFRICAN CONTINENT. FOR NATIVE INHABITANTS THIS GIANT TREE WAS ALWAYS A SOURCE OF NUTRITIOUS FOOD. IT HAS BEEN LIKE THAT UNTIL TODAY. THE PLANT IS ALSO USED FOR HEALING OF VARIOUS AILMENTS, E.G. BACTERIAL INFECTIONS, DIARRHEA OR HIGH TEMPERATURE. ADDITIONALLY, SOME CLOTHES AND HOUSEHOLD ITEMS ARE MADE OF THE BAOBAB TREE.
THE POWDERED BAOBAB BIO BY PURELLA IS OBTAINED FROM DRIED FRUIT PULP, COMING FROM ORGANIC PLANTATIONS BASED IN NORTH-WEST AFRICA. THE POWDER IS NATURALLY GLUTEN-FREE, PROVIDED FOR VEGANS AND VEGETARIANS. FREE FROM GMOs, PESTICIDES AND HEAVY METALS.
Baobab is a prebiotic and an abundant source of calcium
Are you having stomachaches, feeling filled up or suffering from indigestion? The reason might be the disturbance in the bacterial flora. In our contemporary diet, we forget about vegetables and fruits, which should be the foundations of a healthy nutrition. Lack of relevant amounts of fiber causes your digestive system to stop working properly. The powdered baobab is a perfect source of the soluble fiber. It acts like a natural prebiotic and stimulates the multiplication of good bacteria in the intestine.
The powdered baobab fruit is also a rich source of calcium, needed for keeping your bones and teeth in good shape. The plant will also provide you with significant amounts of vitamin C and group B vitamins. Thiamine will improve the functioning of your cardiovascular and nervous systems and vitamin B6 prevent muscle cramps and regulate blood pressure.
The powdered baobab in your healthy diet
The powder from a fruit pulp tastes gently sweet and citrus-like. You may add it to cocktails, fruit juices, oatmeal, cottage cheese or yogurt. You can add it to pies or pancakes, or the cake. If topped on a salad, it gives a slightly sour flavor.
DID YOU KNOW?
Baobab is recognized in Africa as a tree of life. Not only its fruits but also young leaves are consumed that are prepared similarly to spinach. Water is drained from the fruit pulp, named “monkey bread”, and then mixed up with various drinks. The legend says that the baobab tree thought to be better than other plants. Therefore gods decided to teach it a lesson. They planted it upside down, with the roots up, so to teach the tree some humility. That is why it looks so exotic right now.
