Boabab

    boabab

    Baobab is a fruit found throughout African savannahs, especially Madagascar.[1] Africans have used the fruit for centuries, for everything from a tasty snack to treatment for diarrhea and fever.[2]

    Baobab looks like a football-shaped coconut, with fibers connected to marshmallow-looking pulp inside the husk. The fruit’s taste is described as a mix of pear, grapefruit, and vanilla.[3]

    Baobab is rightly called a superfruit. It contains incredible amounts of proteins, vitamins, and minerals.

    A single tablespoon baobab fruit is chock full of essential nutrients.

    • 3.25 g amino acids
    • 3 g carbs
    • 13 calories
    • 10 g fiber
    • 3% calcium
    • 5% iron
    • 50% vitamin C
    • 10% vitamin B6[1]

    Because it has such a high vitamin C content, baobab has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants fight free radicals that stress cells, contributing to aging, inflammation, and cardiovascular diseases.[4]

    Besides being incredibly nutritious, baobab has been scientifically shown to be an effective treatment for several ailments.

    Baobab is effective at treating diarrhea and dehydration caused by diarrhea. A study performed on children in Africa found baobab was just as effective as the World Health Organization’s diarrhea treatment.[5]

    In addition, baobab fruit lowers body temperature to normal levels. It works just as effectively as standard accepted antipyretic activity.[6]

    Baobab fruit has no recorded side effects. It is a regular part of the African diet in many areas.

    Many fruits that contain excess fructose and fiber cause diarrhea, but if you stick to the recommended dose on the label of your baobab powder, you should be fine.

    The most common dose for supplementary use is 1 tablespoon.

    For diarrhea, scientists prepared a mixture of 20 g dissolved baobab pulp in a quart of boiling water to give to patients.[5]

    The accepted dose to treat fever is an aqueous mixture of 800 mg baobab per ml water.[6]
