- What is it?
Baobab trees, of the genus Adansonia, grow throughout Africa and Madagascar as well as Australia. They are famous for their shape, sometimes called the upside-down tree since their many thin branches look like roots growing high up in the air. The largest baobabs can even grow as tall as 100 feet with trunks over 15 feet wide. Their large, bulbous trunks have led some cultures to say that spirits make their homes inside of them. Cultural superstitions aside, the fruit, seeds, and leaves of baobab trees have proven health benefits when consumed.
- Facts and info
Baobabs are great sources of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. The leaves, which are what Goldleaf sells fresh from our partner farm in Ghana, can be ground into a powder and taken via capsule or used in cooking. They contain high amounts of calcium and easily digested proteins. The powder has also been shown to contain many nutrients, most notably vitamin C, vitamin B6, iron, niacin, and potassium. Other studies of baobab powder and extract have shown it to contain antioxidant properties, anti-inflammatories, fibers which aid in digestion, and even benefits for blood sugar control.
