Deserted Island Superfood
If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one thing, what would it be?
It’s a highly unlikely situation, but we’ve all thought about it before. We’re just trying to be prepared for the worst case scenario! There are many factors to consider: What would help me survive until rescue? What would complement the resources I can scavenge? How do I keep myself alive and healthy on a deserted island?
Deserted island living can take a toll on your body, so it’s important to properly support your immune and digestive systems with the essential superfoods they need.
On a deserted island you have to work with what you can find, so supporting your gut whenever possible is essential. You may find yourself eating things you never dreamed of having to consume. However, boiling tree bark and eating it like jerky, munching on mystery berries, or constantly eating the same kind of tough meat every day can take a toll on your digestive system!
Baobab is full of prebiotic fiber, which will help keep digestion running smoothly! Healthy digestion = healthy immune system. The only thing worse than being stranded on a deserted island is being ill while stranded there! Baobab also has the essential antioxidants and micronutrients that might be hard to find with limited resources.
A factor that’s often forgotten when we think about being stranded on a deserted island is the sun. Unless you’re a master of quickly constructing solid shelters without proper tools, you’ll most likely be getting some substantial sun exposure. Luckily, if you have your baobab with you, your skin will be nourished from within by powerful antioxidants, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Supporting skin protection and collagen formation during this strenuous time ensures you don’t look twice your age upon returning home one day.
Problem: You’re on your last handful of mystery berries, but are about to need some energy to climb into the rescue helicopter that’s approaching on the horizon!
Solution: Swallow your final spoonful of Baobab and get ready to feel that last superfood boost before finally returning home. It’s been a wild ride, but because you were smart and had your baobab with you, you’ll live to tell the tale.
