As the snow finally starts to melt and the smell of spring slowly takes to the air, it is time to think about getting outside, getting active and Feeling Good! If you have spent some time at Limitless Good you have probably seen us talk about the Baobab Fruit as a great way to Feel Good. Today, we want to get into a little more detail on the nutritional benefits of the Baobab Fruit and how it can really help you Feel Good.
We were going to explain why the Baobab Fruit provides nutritional benefits that can help you Feel Good, but the Mascots are holding up signs saying Baobab Fruit makes you Feel Good. As everyone knows, if cartoon characters say something, via a cartoon chalkboard - you can take that to the bank. It's cold hard fact, end of story...
What??? You clearly can't trust cartoon mascots these days! Looks like we will have to explain the nutritional benefits of the Baobab Fruit.
If you are completely new to the Baobab Fruit, we recommend you start with What is Baobab Fruit? Surprisingly enough, that is our article that explains what the Baobab Fruit is and why you should care about it. Today we want to dive a little deeper into the nutrients in the Baobab Fruit that make it so special.
As we explain in our Baobab Fruit facts article, the Baobab Fruit is bursting with nutrients -
Baobab Fruit Has:
The question then becomes, what health benefits can you get from eating all of the above nutrients? We are going to go low on hype here, because, well, hype sucks. The simple fact is that a diet rich in antioxidants has been shown to have a wide range of health benefits in study after study.
"Studies at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in Boston suggest that consuming fruits and vegetables with a high-ORAC value may help slow the aging process in both body and brain"
"Science has long held that damage by oxygen free radicals is behind many of the maladies that come with aging, including cardiovascular disease and cancer. There's firm evidence that a high intake of fruits and vegetables reduces risk of cancer and that a low intake raises risk. And recent evidence suggests that diminished brain function associated with aging and disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases may be due to increased vulnerability to free radicals, says Joseph, a neuroscientist."
I hate to be the one to break this to you, but we are all rusting...on the inside. In fact, all that great exercise we do actually creates more free radicals in the body, that have the effect of oxidizing our body, much like oxygen rusts a car.
Antioxidants work to keep the free radicals in check and limit any damage they may cause. It is for this reason that we strongly recommend a Baobab Fruit drink if you are exercising. The nutrients in the Baobab Fruit, like magnesium and potassium keep you going strong during the workout. Then, once your workout is done, the antioxidants in the Baobab fruit will keep all those free radicals you created during your workout session in check.
We really are excited about the Baobab Fruit and our 100% USDA Organic Raw Baobab Fruit Powder - Limitless Baobab. We haven't even touched on how our Limitless Baobab does Good by providing meals for families in need and is fairly traded and sustainable harvested. So much to tell, we hope you will explore some more articles on the Baobab Fruit -
