Baobab Fruit; Symbiotic Funtional Food

The Baobab is a valuable high nutritional functional food ingredient. In traditional pharmacopoeia, it is used as an intestinal regulator in cases of gastric disorders (for both constipation and dysentery) due its prebiotic and probiotic activities.

It serves as a natural revitalizing source to combat fatigue and as an energy boost for athletes. Known for its anti-inflammatory properties it can be beneficial for joint problems, urinary tract disorders and has pain killing and anti-fever properties.

Due to high vitamin contents, studies have indicated that Baobab demonstrates strong anti-oxidant characteristics and hepato-protective activities. An excellent source of dietary fibers, it helps control hunger and serves as a beneficial dietary source.
