Baobab, the big tree anticancer

Fruits are a reserve of vitamines

15-01-2020 by redazione

The world begins to discover the amazing properties of the African tree par excellence, the baobab.
The thousand-year-old plant, as they call it on the Black Continent, the one that the Lord wanted to punish for too narcissism, dropping it so that the roots were up and the branches beneath the ground, today knows the fame for the goodness of its fruits.
From baobab seeds, essential oils are used to cure skin and prevent inflammation and skin cancers, while high herbal teas are now available and, if taken regularly, are one of the best preventative treatments to prevent cancer.
To obtain a herbal tea, it is necessary to toast the seeds of the baobab as it is done with the coffee, and obtain a very good drink, which can be assimilated to Italian barley coffee. The Baobab flesh is very rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C, which can reach up to 300mg every 100g of product (about seven times more than that contained in oranges with the same weight!). Recall that vitamin C has the highest antioxidant power so far known in nature. In addition to vitamin C, there is a large amount of calcium (295 mg / 100 g, about three times more milk!), Potassium and phosphorus. The pulp also contains soluble fibers, which are attributed to a prebiotic function, which activates the balance of the bacterial flora, and insoluble fibers to increase intestinal movement and fecal mass, reducing the risk of developing overweight and constipation. International studies on Baobab fungus showed a marked anti-inflammatory and anti-viral effect at doses of 400-800 mg / kg. Weight of the subject.
