Right now you probably have two burning questions. First, what in the world is ORAC? Second, is 8,400 a lot of ORAC?
To help us compare the antioxidant levels of different foods there is something called ORAC -Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. Scientist can measure the ORAC value of foods and this gives us a point of reference when comparing different foods. The higher the ORAC value, the more antioxidants in the food and the better its ability to fight free radicals. That is slightly over-simplifying things, since there are different ways to measure ORAC and different types of antioxidants, but in general, the higher the ORAC the better the antioxidant fighting powers of the food.
The general recommendation is that we consume foods that provide at least 5,000 ORAC a day. The Limitless Good Baobab Fruit Powder gives you 8,400 ORAC in just half of a serving (6 grams)!
Say the phrase "Baobab Fruit" and you will probably get one of two responses...
What in the world is Baobab Fruit?
Oh, That Is The Fruit Packed With Antioxidants
While the Baobab Fruit is certainly an antioxidant powerhouse, it is also filled with heart healthy fiber. For every single serving (12 grams) of Limitless Good Baobab Fruit Powder, you get 6 grams of fiber.
The breakdown of the fiber in Baobab fruit is 67% Soluble Fiber and 33% Insoluble Fiber. Therefore in a 12 gram serving you are getting about 4 grams of Soluble Fiber and 2 grams of Insoluble Fiber. In just one serving of Baobab Fruit you are getting 24% of the RDA for Fiber.
We clearly are huge fans of the Baobab Fruit and of course love the very high antioxidant levels, but if you are looking to increase your fiber intake, nothing beats a tall glass of Baobab Lemonade!
