Baobab the superfruit

I’m always excited to discover nourishing new foods, and this weekend it was the velvety baobab.  Baobab is a fruit grown in Africa, with a velvety green shell that protects the seeds inside.  The seeds are coated with an edible pale powder that can be added to food and drinks and has a pleasant citrus-tang.

Research has shown that baobab deserves its superfruit status as it is:

-Rich in calcium (more than milk), magnesium and potassium

-A good source of vitamin C

-High in anti-oxidants (similar levels to goji berries)

With so much going for it, why not give it a try?  Baobab powder and fruit extract are versatile and can be easily added to smoothies, fresh juices or even muesli, for an added nutrient boost.  With its high anti-oxidant and vitamin C profile it’s a fantastic addition to help support immunity and protect against autumnal bugs.

If you’re suffering with poor immunity and want further advice on how to stay healthy through the winter then please give us a call for a free chat or book in for a nutrition consultation at one of our London clinics.
