Baobab has a multitude of benefits for your body, mind and soul.

Fibre is found in organic baobab powder, which makes up 50% of it! It can improve the health of your digestive system. The fibre in baobab powder mostly soluble fibre. Up to 75% of the fibre consists of soluble fibre, which slows down the process of absorption of certain food constituents, such as sugar and fats, etc.

Baobab powder raises your energy levels due to the high vitamin C content.
Researchers at the National Institutes of Health reported that fatigue was one of the first signs of vitamin C depletion. In one study, 44 workers received 6 grams of vitamin C daily. After two weeks, their fatigue had decreased by almost one-third. This means that it is important to get your daily intake of vitamin C.
One serving of our organic baobab powder gives your 33% of your daily intake.
