1. WHY ORGANICULE BOABAB?

Organicule Baobab powder is 100% organic & is extracted only from naturally fallen fruits. Organicule’s Baobab powder is minimally processed so it retains all its nutritional qualities making Organicule Baobab one of the best powder to use in your favourite smoothie or dessert.

 

2. WHEN TO TAKE ORGANICULE BOABAB?

It is not important when to take Baobab as long as you are regular and consistent. We usually like to start our day with Baobab or sometimes in the afternoon post lunch.

Easy: The most important thing is to take your Baobab Powder consistently and daily – don’t worry whether this is in morning, afternoon or evening. Just take 1 serving (2 tablespoon).

 

3. WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF BOABAB?

1. IMPROVE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The human body cannot make or store its own vitamin C (unlike other animals), so we need to make sure we get a good supply from the foods we eat every day. One of the key benefits of vitamin C is that it helps to keep our immune system strong, supporting our body’s defence against infections, diseases and other illnesses.

2. RADIANT SKIN
According to The Journal of Nutrition, Baobab has the highest antioxidant content of any fruit. Baobab powder has twice the antioxidants gram per gram of goji berries and more than blueberries and pomegranates combined. Baobab is packed with antioxidants and vitamin C which supports collagen formation – helping to give you radiant, glowing skin as well as preventing wrinkles.

3. PREVENT DIABETES
Baobab Powder contains 34% soluble fibre, this helps to slow down the release of sugars into the blood stream, reducing energy spikes. Soluble fibre can also help to control blood glucose levels, improve blood cholesterol and reduce visceral fat (body fat that is stored around the organs in your abdominal).

4. ABSORPTION OF IRON
Over 30% of the world’s population are deficient in iron – making it the most common nutritional disorder (World Health Organisation, 2017). Many turn to various iron supplements to increase their intake (we like to use Moringa Powder as a natural alternative). A less known fact is that vitamin C is needed to help the body absorb iron so pairing iron with vitamin C actually increases absorption.

5. PREBIOTIC
Most people are familiar with probiotics – good bacteria found in foods such as yoghurt, kefir and kimchi which have beneficial effects to your health, particularly your digestive system. However, very few are familiar with prebiotics which play an equally important role in gut health. Prebiotics are indigestable dietary fibres, also known as soluble fibres, made up of non-living organic matter.

The soluble fibers of baobab fruit pulp are prebiotics: non-digestible food components that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and activity of beneficial microflora (Journal of Food Research, 2016). It’s these prebiotic qualities that could explain how baobab might just be the secret to having the world’s healthiest gut.

 

4. WHAT IS BAOBAB?

Baobab is the fruit of the iconic African baobab tree (you may recognise it from The Lion King), also known as The Tree of Life. It is pronounced ba-u-bab or bay-o-bab depending where abouts in Africa you are. Baobab trees grow in 32 African countries as well as some parts of Australia and Asia. Baobab is the only fruit in the world that dries while it is still hanging on the branch. It bakes for months in the African sunshine so when its hard shell is opened, the fruit pulp within is completely dry. Baobab fruit is prized for its high vitamin C and fibre content and its exceptional levels of antioxidants.

 

5. HOW DO I USE BAOBAB POWDER?

Thanks to its delicious, sweet and citrussy flavour, it is easy to incorporate baobab powder into your daily routine. Mix 1-2 tablespoons into your favourite smoothie or juice, stir into yoghurt or porridge or sprinkle onto granola or fresh fruit. One of the simplest ways to take baobab is with water for a refreshing and hydrating drink. As its so fibre rich, make a paste with a little liquid before topping up your glass or shake into your water bottle and any lumps will magically disappear! If you are feeling under the weather, mix baobab with hot water and a slice of lemon and ginger.

 

    6. HOW MUCH BAOBAB POWDER SHOULD I TAKE A DAY?

    We recommend taking one to two tablespoons (12g) of Organicule Baobab Powder per day to enjoy maximum health benefits. Just like any fruit, however, its really up to you how much you take. There’s no danger of having too much baobab as any excess vitamin C will simply pass through the body.

     

    7. ARE THERE ANY KNOWN SIDE-EFFECTS OF TAKING BAOBAB POWDER?

    There are no known side effects or allergenic effects caused by direct consumption of baobab powder. You can’t have too much baobab as once the body has got its fill of vitamin C, any excess you consumer simply passes through the system. However, as with any dietary changes, it is worth contacting your doctor or dietitian for individual recommendations if you are concerned.

     

    8. WHY IS BAOBAB POWDER HIGH IN SUGAR? IS IT SUITABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH DIABETES?

    Baobab Powder is 100% fruit, and like all fruits, it naturally contains sugar (31.1g fruit sugar per 100g). A serving of baobab is only 10g so you are only ingesting a small amount of sugar at a time. It’s also important to remember that our body responds to natural sugars differently to refined sugars. The high fibre content of baobab (nearly 50%) means that it promotes the slow release of sugars into the bloodstream, ensuring steady levels of energy throughout the day. This makes baobab suitable for people suffering from blood glucose control issues such as type 2 diabetes.

     

    9. DOES IT HELP TO LOWER CHOLESTEROL?

    High-fibre foods and specifically those with soluble fibre are very effective in lowering levels of “bad cholesterol” i.e. LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein). Cholesterol is usually reabsorbed in the gut but soluble fibre prevents the reabsorption of cholesterol; therefore more cholesterol must be drawn from the blood and subsequently the level of bad cholesterol in the blood decreases. Baobab is nearly 50% fibre, two thirds of which is soluble, so it is likely to have a positive impact on cholesterol levels.

     

      10. IS BAOBAB POWDER A SUITABLE REPLACEMENT FOR VITAMIN TABLETS?

      Keep in mind that Maca is a food and not a pharmaceutical medicine. It’s not like taking an aspirin and watching your headache melt away. Maca takes time and consistent use to show effects. Most people who take Maca daily report seeing some benefits within 10-14 days of starting. Others, often those taking Maca therapeutically, report seeing benefits after about 30 days. Our recommendation is to stay consistent with your Maca routine and make sure that you give it enough time to work.

       

      11. IS BAOBAB POWDER SUITABLE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN? WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN?

      Baobab is safe for pregnant women and for women who have just given birth. In fact, it is recommended that pregnant women increase their vitamin C intake by 10mg a day and by 30mg a day during lactation. As Organicule Baobab Powder is a naturally rich source of vitamin C it is easier for the body to absorb than manufactured vitamin C tablets. Furthermore, it is pure fruit powder, so is completely safe for pregnant women and children. The fact that it tastes good (a proud winner of a Great Taste Award!) means that it is easy to incorporate into a child’s diet, e.g. in smoothies or porridge.

       

      12. CAN I HAVE BAOBAB POWDER WITH WATER?

      Mixing baobab with water is an easy way to keep your vitamin C levels topped up and to stay nice and energised throughout the day. Because baobab powder is high in fibre and has not been processed, it does not dissolve instantly when mixed with water. The best way to take baobab and water is simply to shake it into your water bottle – the act of shaking makes any fibrous lumps magically disappear! If you don’t have a bottle handy, mix the powder with a little water into a paste before topping up your glass.

       

      13. WHAT IS THE ANTIOXIDANT LEVEL OF BAOBAB COMPARED TO OTHER SUPERFOODS?

      Baobab has the highest antioxidant content of any whole fruit in the world, according to The Journal of Nutrition. It has an ORAC value of 24,000 umol/100g, providing 20x more antioxidants than green tea and more than blueberries and pomegranates combined.
