The Health Benefits of the Baobab Tree Fruit

Learn how the baobab superfood can aid weight loss, blood sugar levels, inflammation, and digestive health.

The baobab tree is a deciduous tree found in parts of South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and Mozambique. Baobab’s superfood can vary depending on the geographical location, and our Baobab is from South Africa. Africans use all parts of the Tree for Medicine, food, rope, and clothing.

Baobab (scientific name, Adansonia) trees can grow up to 98 feet tall and produce a large fruit appreciated for its delicious citrus-like flavor. The pulp is high in vitamin C, antioxidants, and minerals like calcium, potassium, iron, and zinc. The seeds and kernels of the plant contain fiber, fat, and micronutrients like thiamine, calcium, and iron.

Powdered baobab contains many essential nutrients associated with several impressive health benefits. Adding baobab to your diet may aid weight loss. It can help balance blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation and optimize digestive health.*

It can help curb cravings and promote feelings of fullness, helping you eat less to shed those unwanted pounds. 

Baobab’s high fiber content may help slow the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream. Fiber also acts as a prebiotic and feeds the beneficial bacteria in your gut, optimizing the health of your gut microbiome. Increasing your fiber may also protect against intestinal ulcers, constipation, inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), and hemorrhoids.
