Healthier, Younger Looking Skin
Organic African Baobab contains natural vitamin C, an important Vitamin in any anti-wrinkle diet. Vitamin C, whether derived from foods or dietary supplements, helps your body form collagen and elastin, two structural proteins that give your skin support and elasticity.
The human body cannot make its own vitamin C, so we need to make sure we get a good supply from the foods we eat every day. Vitamin C is essential to the effective functioning of our bodies for a number of reasons. It contributes to normal:
Collagen formation supporting healthy skin, teeth, gums, cartilage, bones and blood vessels
Energy release, energy-yielding metabolism and reduction of tiredness and fatigue
Functioning of the nervous system
Protection of cells from oxidative stress
Absorption of iron. Vitamin C actually increases your body’s absorption of iron, which is why vitamin C-rich Organic African Baobab and iron-rich Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina work so well together
In addition to being a great source of natural vitamin C, Organic African Baobab fruit powder possesses strong antioxidant properties, which may further boost the benefits of this super fruit for the skin. As you may already know, antioxidants neutralize free radicals, unstable atoms and molecules that can cause damage to your body at the cellular level, increasing the risk of degenerative diseases and other signs of aging, including wrinkles and fine lines on the skin.
Organic Baobab fruit powder has twice the antioxidants gram per gram of goji berries and more than blueberries and pomegranates combined.
Natural Liver Cleanser and Detoxifier
If your liver is not healthy, it will not efficiently do one of its most important jobs – detoxifying toxic substances, including metabolic wastes, and excreting them from your body. A high exposure to toxins such as cigarette smoke, chemicals, alcohol and many other toxic substances can cause damage to the liver and limit its detoxifying capabilities, but luckily there are also many foods and supplements that can get your liver back on track.
It has been proposed that the potential hepatoprotective properties of the Baobab fruit may be linked to the presence of triterpenoids, beta-sitosterol, beta-amyrin palmitate and ursolic acid in the Baobab fruit-pulp.
