Dietary fibre powder for healthy intestine plus more antioxidants than goji, bluebery & cranberryIngredients: 100% pure raw certified organic Baobab Fruit Pulp Powder.
This remarkable anti-oxidant rich superfood comes from the fruit of the legendary baobab tree (adansonia digitata) known by Africans as The Tree of Life and revered by ancient cultures as a vital source of nourishment to entire tribes. Considered to be the king of superfruits and superfoods, Baobab fruit powder is the first natural bio complex created, dehydrated and stabilized by nature.
Besides the valuable gluten-free dietary fibres, antioxidants and a tons of essential nutrients, it has valuable prebiotics to keep your bacterial ecosystem in a healthy balance. This contributes not only to your health within but also to your skin. Your skin hosts more than 500 species of bacteria alone. This community of bacteria contributes to your immune defense. To keep this bacterial ecosystem in balance contributes strongly to the health of our skin (and to our immune system!). The skin is our first line of defense when it comes to external threats but it is also highly affected by internal processes like stress, anxiety and negative thoughts like worrying and overthinking or anything that is happening to any cells within your body. If this bacterial ecosystem gets disrupted, our skins react with oversensitivity, acne, dermatitis, rosacea and many other visible signs. The skin is your feedback system, so treat it well and keep its bacterial ecosystem healthy by avoiding harsh and harmful substances on your skin and this includes naturals like aggressive essential oils! And help it by keeping our internal bacterial ecosystem in good balance. Prebiotics are food for your probiotics already present in your body.
Prof Terry Bolin, gastroenterologist, states that adequate intake of dietary fibre can help maintain a healthy digestive tract, ease constipation, help with irritable bowel syndrome, haemerrhoids, raised blood cholesterol and diabetes.
Baobab fruit pulp has been shown to assist in maintaining overall health and well-being, particularly the digestive, gastric and bowel systems. A healthy digestive system will aid the absorption of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acid and fortify the health of the immune system.

DIETARY FIBRES in our BAOBAB Fruit Pulp Powder
Sadly, the dietary fibre intake in Australia does approximate about 2/3 of the recommended daily intake for a healthy functioning of our digestive system.
On average, most Australians consume roughly 20g of fibre daily. The recommendation of The Heart Foundation is that adults should consume approximately 30g daily. Australian experts suggest that children would require 10g of fibre a day plus an additional gram for every year of age. (for exmaple: 10year old child requires 10g + 10g= 20g/day).
Professor Terry Bolin, gastroenterologist, states disorders connected with a lack of dietary fibres are:
*Irritable Bowel Syndrome
*Raised Blood Cholesterol
THERE ARE TWO MAIN TYPES OF FIBRES:
Both categories are needed by our system in our daily diets:
Soluble fibre – includes pectins, gums and mucilage. One of its major roles is to lower blood cholesterol levels. Soluble fibre can also help with constipation.
Insoluble fibre – includes cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin. A major role of insoluble fibre is to add bulk to faeces and to prevent constipation and associated problems such as hemorrhoids.
Our Baobab Fruit Pulp Powder contains 45% of dietary fibres of which 22.5% is soluble and 22.5% is insoluble. 2-4 teaspoons will provide us with half of our dietary fibre requirement per day.
Baobab fruit pulp has been shown to assist in maintaining overall health and well-being, particularly the digestive, gastric and bowel system.
A healthy digestive system will furthermore aid the absorption of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids and fortify the health of the immune system. We can utilise as many dietary & health supplement as we want but without a healthy functioning of our digestive system, our bodies won’t be able to absorb any of them. Our health and well-being truly relies on a healthy gut!
