Baobab Fruit and the Probiotic and Prebiotic Connection

Like a fine wine, the Baobab Fruit keeps getting better with age.

No, we are not saying you should eat old, rotten Baobab Fruit :) We are saying is the health benefits of Baobab keep getting better as we learn more about the fruit.

What We Always Knew About the Baobab Fruit...

The Baobab Fruit is packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C.  As we explain in this article on the Baobab Fruit, the Baobab has these key nutrients - 

  • 6 x Antioxidants of Blueberries
  • 6 x Vitamin C of Oranges
  • 6 x Potassium of Bananas
  • 50% Heart Healthy Fiber Per Serving
  • More Magnesium Than Coconut Water
  • Twice As Much Calcium as Milk
  • Gram for Gram, 66% More Iron Than Spinach 
  • Low in Sodium, Sugar and Calories

What We Are Now Learning About the Baobab Fruit...

New research is showing that the fiber in the Baobab can act as a very powerful prebiotic.  If you are new to the whole world of Prebiotics, Probiotics and the incredible Microbiome - I highly recommend you check out this article

Long story, very short... 

Your gut contains an entire ecosystem of trillions of microbes, this is called your microbiome.  These healthy bugs keep our gut and in turn the whole body functioning well.  It is in the gut where we digest food - if all goes well we get the nutrients from the food we eat and feel great.  If the microbiome is compromised, food is not properly digested, our immune system suffers and a whole host of problems start.

How do you keep your microbiome healthy and happy?  Probiotics contain live microbes, so in a way, taking probiotics is like sending in replacement troops for your microbiome.

Prebiotics are foods or supplements that your gut microbes love to eat.  So, by increasing prebiotics in your diet, you feed your microbiome and keep everything running well.

Guess what food is very high in prebiotics?  Yep, the awesome Baobab Fruit.  More research is looking at the dietary fiber in the Baobab and finding that it is a very effective prebiotic.  

If you take our Limitless Baobab Fruit powder (6 grams of gut healthy fiber per serving), not only will you love it - but those trillions of microbes in your gut will feast on it and love it as well!
