I have a "thing" for superfoods, so I was happy to find this powder at TJMaxx for a discounted price. I had done some previous research, but did not care for the hefty price tag, but this 8oz bag was $12, so I decided it was time to give it a go. It is considered "The King" of Superfruits, so I had to!! :-)
The Baobab fruit has the following health benefits:
- 3x more calcium than milk
- 4x more potassium than bananas
- 6x more Vitamin C than an orange
- 10x more antioxidants than Goji Berries
- 8 essential Amino Acids
- It is also good for: Skin, Respiratory and Digestive Health
I have been adding a tablespoon of this powder to my green smoothies in the morning. To be honest, I do so much, nutritionally, that I cannot tell what difference it is doing to my well-being. It doesn't have a particular taste, though I know that it is there. I rest in the fact that it has the benefits listed above and I find joy that I am doing my body good!
Have you tried Baobab before? What other superfruits do you get excited about?
