The western diet consists mostly of foods that are high in sodium, and low in magnesium, antioxidants and fibre. This has led to an imbalance in our body’s PH levels and an increase in acidity. Consumption of alkaline foods is believed to be directly related to improved health and preventing diseases. According to research, Baobab fruit is one of the highest alkaline foods available with a Potential Renal Acid Load (PRAL) rating of -52. Consumption of Baobab helps improve and balance our body's PH levels, which drives health benefits, such as:
Sufficient Magnesium Source
Baobab Powder provides sufficient magnesium essential for our overall health. Research has shown that magnesium in our body is necessary for bone health, Vitamin D absorption, and heart health. Magnesium is also known for boosting exercise performance, fighting depression and type 2 diabetes, and lowering blood pressure.
Studies have shown that a diet with excess acid results in increased excretion of calcium in the urine. In addition, these studies demonstrate that the vitamins and minerals contained in alkaline foods play a vital role in preventing bone loss as we age, and in strengthening our bones. Baobab Powder also has a significant amount of calcium to preserve bone strength.
According to research, acidic environments in our body create a more conducive environment for cancer cell growth. By consuming more alkaline foods like Baobab Powder, our body is provided with more minerals, which aid in better vitamin absorption. The alkaline nature of Baobab Powder helps dispose of waste in our body, which prevents cancer.
Foods that are high in acid, increase the acidity in our body, which leads to inflammation. By consuming more Baobab Powder, our body becomes more alkaline in nature, which reduces inflammation and its associated symptoms – fatigue, and joint, chest and abdominal pain.
Improve muscle efficiency
Baobab Powder helps maximize muscle efficiency because of its high alkaline content. Baobab, as an alkaline food reduces the amount of force our muscles needs to move, which can make our muscles work longer and get stronger. Baobab fruit powder can also help improve our muscles' efficiency.
Alkaline foods have become more important in balancing our body’s PH levels and improving overall health. Baobab Powder’s ease of use, antioxidant power, vitamin/mineral properties, and very high alkaline content can be very beneficial in preventing diseases. In today's world, it has become easier to find foods that are more acidic in nature, and with the busy schedules associated with more developed societies, Baobab Powder can play an important role in helping us reap the benefits of consuming alkaline foods.
