Organic Baobab Supplements, How To Pick The Best One?

By now, most of our readers are convinced that they should incorporate Organic Baobab Fruit powder into their diet.  Check the articles on the Baobab Fruit health benefits on this site and you will see why we think Baobab should be part of anyones diet.  The fruit is bursting with antioxidants, packed with vitamins and minerals and is 50% heart healthy fiber.

But Which Baobab Supplement Should We Use?

This is probably the most common question we get it here.  Everyone wants to know what Baobab supplement has the most nutrients and will produce the highest level of health benefits.  We have both a short and long answer for this question.

The short answer is – Limitless Baobab from Limitless Good.  The Limitless Baobab is 100% Organic and contains only Baobab Fruit Pulp powder, with no fillers or other ingredients.  We have used it for months and it has more nutrients than any other Baobab we have tested.  In addition, the company does some great things to help charities, so that is a big bonus.

The longer answer is – do your research and ask the right questions.  Here are the questions you want to ask to any company that makes a Baobab Supplement -

Is your Baobab 100% Certified Organic?

Do you have lab testing to show the nutrient levels in your supplement?

Do you test for heavy metals?

Can I See All The Lab Tests?

Do You Let the Baobab Dehydrate in The Shell?

Is Your Baobab Sustainable and Fairly Traded?

If they can answer yes to all of the above questions – you have found a good Baobab Supplement.

Do Your Research and Always Ask Questions

One of the most important pieces of advice we can give – pick up the phone and call a Baobab Supplement company.  Ask your questions and see what they say.  If they don’t want to answer your questions, move on to another company.

Speaking of questions – keep them coming.  We love hearing your questions on Baobab, so please ask away and we will answer to the best of our ability.

 

The Facts On Organic Baobab Powder Health Benefits and Side Effects

We hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season.  One of the most common questions we get regarding Baobab Fruit Powder has to to with the real differences between brands.  In other words, will a less expensive brand of Baobab Fruit powder have any less nutrients than a  more expensive brand of Baobab Powder.  The answer is Yes, No, Maybe and It Depends :)

Seriously, You Do Tend To Get What You Pay For

We have talked at length about the differences between Baobab powders.  Take a look at this article if you need a quick refresher.   Clearly there is a big difference between brands of Baobab Fruit.   The problem is, you can’t always go by price.  Sometimes a less expensive Baobab powder is a better than a more expensive supplement, but in truth that is pretty rare.  As a general rule, the lower cost Baobab fruit powders do not have the same quality as the more costly baobab powders.  There are exceptions to that rule, but it is a decent rule to follow.

How Do Health Benefits Vary From Baobab Supplement To Supplement

Baobab powder made from Baobab Fruit that grows in Malawi has been shown to have 6 times the antioxidant levels of Baobab Fruit from other regions.  So, it is very important to know the source of the Baobab Fruit powder you are buying.

Obviously, if you buy a Baobab Fruit powder that has less antioxidants, you are going to see less health benefits.  This could explain why some people who have used an inexpensive Baobab powder, do not feel a big difference.  The supplement they are using may be much lower in antioxidants when compared to something like the Limitless Baobab Fruit Powder, which comes from Malawi.

In addition, you want to make sure your Baobab supplement has enough Baobab in it.  Now, this may sound obvious and silly, but some “Baobab Supplements” have just a small amount of Baobab Powder and then they are filled with other, less beneficial, ingredients.  We recommend a Baobab Powder supplement that provides at least 10 grams of Organic Baobab Fruit powder per serving.

Side Effects and the Baobab Powder

Pure Organic Baobab Fruit powder will be made with only Baobab fruit.  It is rare to have side effects when using Pure Baobab Fruit Powder,  just as it would be weird to have side effects from eating a bowl of blueberries. So, when you are using 100% Organic Baobab Powder, it is rare to have any side effects.

People who are reporting side effect from Baobab Fruit are probably using a Baobab supplement that has other ingredients in the mix.  This is just one more reason why we tell everyone to study the label.  You want to make sure you are getting Pure Baobab Fruit, with nothing else added.
