Baobab Fruit Powder is a high-nutrition, raw, whole food that dehydrates naturally inside the fruits of the baobab tree (Adansonia digitata). The fruit is simply separated from the seeds and sieved before packing. Baobab is not pasteurized, heat extracted, freeze dried or concentrated like so many other fruits. No nutrients are lost and the powder remains whole and unprocessed.

  • A new exotic ingredient fruit powder with a unique tangy taste that can be mixed in yogurt, smoothies, water, juice, or oatmeal.
  • #1 Superfruit in the world.
  • Exceptionally rich in antioxidants, fiber and essential vitamins and minerals

Baobab's Reported Key Nutritional Properties

Antioxidants: {8x Acai Berries}

With an ORAC value of more than 140,000/100g, Mineralife Baobab Fruit Powder has an antioxidant level more than eight times that of Acai fruit pulp and Goji berries and more than ten times that of cranberries, blueberries and pomegranates.

Potassium: { 6 x Banana }

Our baobab fruit powder contains 2120mg/100g of potassium. That is almost six times higher than bananas, frequently recommended by nutritionists for its potassium content. Potassium is important for many aspects of health including the nervous system and muscle function. Since potassium loss can occur through sweating, baobab's high potassium content may be of particular interest to makers of sports and fitness products.

Calcium: {2.5 x milk}

Our baobab fruit powder contains over 365mg/100g of calcium, vital for building and maintaining healthy bones. That means baobab contains 2.5 X more calcium than milk and may make it the richest- known plant source of this mineral.

Dietary Fiber: {5x Oats}

Adequate levels of dietary fiber can help maintain a healthy digestive tract as well as lower inflammation. Baobab contains over 50% total dietary fiber- higher than all "super fruits." The total fiber is split into 75% soluble fiber and 25% insoluble fiber. Pectin is one source of fiber in baobab and has been reported to have a role in reducing total and LDL cholesterol. Pectin is also said to enhance the pre-biotic bacteria in the large intestine, potentially improving overall gut health. Baobab is reported to have pectin content of about 25g pr 100g of fruit, which may have a role in formulations as a gelling, thickening agent or stabilizer.

Vitamin C {4 x Oranges}

Vitamin C plays an important role in protecting cells and keeping them healthy. Mineralife Baobab fruit powder contains more vitamin C than many well known fruits, including oranges, kiwi, strawberry and grapefruit.

Magnesium and Iron: {2x Spinach}

Recent surveys have found that many of us- including a majority of women- do not consume enough iron. Our Baobab Fruit Powder is a rich source of iron containing 3.6mg/100g- more than many other foods traditionally recommended for their iron content such as red meat, spinach and lentils. At 144.5mg/g, our Baobab Fruit Powder is a rich natural source of magnesium, a mineral that has been linked to bone health, heart health and lowering of High Blood Pressure.

Antidepressants and High Blood Pressure: A Dangerous Combination

Some of your medications may be affecting others. This is important to understand, as the effects of taking multiple medicines may be very harmful or even deadly.

Depression is a very common condition, especially in teens and older adults. It affects millions of lives every day, and medications that help with depression are among the most highly prescribed medications in America. Unfortunately, so are high blood pressure medications. While it is understandable that both conditions must be treated, at times depression medication may interfere with high blood pressure medicine.

Depression is a condition that, though mental, has serious causes as well as effects outside the mind. Depression is sometimes caused by an imbalance of serotonin and dopamine, and chemical drugs are often prescribed that attempt to correct this imbalance. Unfortunately, serotonin and dopamine affect more than just your mind, and are chemicals needed to complete a variety of functions within the body. One of these functions is that of preventing heart disease by preventing atherosclerosis. If the depression medication does not adequately correct the imbalance, and perhaps puts the serotonin levels lower than they should be, the result will be increased risk of heart disease, including atherosclerosis and high blood pressure.

Dopamine, in addition, is used in cases of a severe drop in blood pressure, and works to raise blood pressure to prevent shock. If a patient has high blood pressure, however, and is on antidepressants which include dopamine, the antidepressant just well may be raising blood pressure, working against blood pressure medication.

That is not to say that antidepressant medications should be avoided at all costs if you do have high blood pressure. Rather, you would do well to research and find acceptable ways of controlling both the depression and high blood pressure through other means. All of those chemicals can not be good for you, anyway.

But how would you treat both depression and high blood pressure homeopathically? First of all, a change in lifestyle as well as in diet is necessary. Higher fat meats and other foods should be avoided, and replaced with plenty of fruits and vegetables. Drinking 8-10 glasses of water is a must, and avoid prepackaged foods, opting instead for fresh foods is best.

That will begin the treatment process, but, though good nutrition will help depression, depression may still exist. It is best to also consider counseling, as talking to someone may reduce stress in your life. Talking to a counselor seems awful-as if you "need help." But truly, getting a few things of your chest every once in a while probably also seems like a great idea. Talking out problems with either a trusted friend or a counselor can be a significant stress relief, and in turn, will lower blood pressure as well.

Because the brain is an organ, it requires proper nutrition to function correctly. If you are not eating right, your brain may be deficient in vitamins and minerals, which will cause it to send improper signals to the body, including those signals which control emotions. Sometimes, but not always, a change in eating habits may relieve many symptoms and feelings of depression even without the use of antidepressant drugs.

Choosing a healthy lifestyle is a great choice for every aspect of your body's health, but it still may not be enough. You will need to speak with a doctor to determine if medication is necessary, and if it is, which would be the best medication for you.

Is it ethical?

By using Mineralife Baobab Fruit Powder daily, you can help make a real difference to the lives of poor families in remote rural areas of Southern Africa. The income these people earn from harvesting baobab often changes their lives and enables them to afford the things we take for granted like healthcare and education. What's more, our producers not only pay harvesters a fair price for their baobab, but also return a share of their sales income to the villages to fund community projects.

Is it sustainable?

We are using global best-practice forestry techniques to ensure that the abundant supply of baobab in Southern Africa is managed sustainably in the long term. Also, by placing a value on the baobab fruit, we are encouraging communities to protect their local trees and surrounding woodlands, which is good for wildlife and biodiversity.

Is it organic?

Production is certified NOP organic by EcoCert.
