July 1, 2015 - Look and Feel Your Best with Baobab!
With the holiday weekend quickly approaching, there may be visions of fireworks dancing in your heads...but what Fourth of July would be complete without indulging in all the tasty treats at the family barbecue?? Bathing suit season is in full swing, and we know you want to look and feel your best - so the Kaibae Team would like to share a little secret with you about the weight control benefits of our Baobab Fruit Powder.
Who says managing your weight has to be bland and boring? Incorporating the naturally sweet and tangy Baobab into your daily regimen can offer more benefits than those from other antioxidant-rich superfoods. Baobab fruit is made up of 50% fiber, an important component of any weight management plan. It keeps you fuller for longer, but it also helps balance sugar metabolism and lowers cholesterol. Fiber delays the release of sugar into the bloodstream and enables your body to metabolize it as needed, thereby stabilizing blood glucose levels. When the metabolic process cannot keep up with glucose intake, excess sugar accumulates and is converted to body fat. By improving blood glucose control, Baobab fiber can help prevent fat storage as well as the onset of diabetes and other metabolic diseases.
But wait, there’s more! Baobab fruit fiber is also prebiotic and promotes a healthy digestive system! You’ve heard of the probiotics trend - so what does prebiotic mean? Prebiotics are nutrients that feed probiotic bacteria and stimulate their growth. In turn, probiotics support a healthy digestive system by assisting the breakdown and absorption of food. Without both of these, the gut cannot function properly and fails to absorb enough nutrients. The body begins to crave these nutrients, causing you to eat more and enter a vicious cycle that ultimately leaves you undernourished and overfed. A healthy digestive system rich in prebiotics and functional probiotics is crucial for long-term weight loss, particularly for women, and several studies from well-respected universities are supporting this claim. One such study, published in the Journal of Functional Foods, even suggests that some probiotics may interfere with the absorption of fat in the intestine, allowing it to be flushed from the body.
Now there is another reason to love Kaibae’s Baobab Fruit Powder! In addition to its multi-vitamin benefits, consider adding it to your diet to manage your weight and promote good digestion. Remember, Baobab can be added to almost ANYTHING: healthy baked goods, popcorn, popsicles, smoothies, or just plain water! So don your red, white, and Baobab this Independence Day and celebrate the Kaibae way!
