Why Baobab Fruit in Capsule Form Is A Bad Idea

Recently we have been seeing a trend of more and more companies making Baobab Fruit supplements in capsule form.  We believe this is a terrible idea.  Don’t get us wrong, we love the Baobab Fruit and think it is great that more companies are looking to provide this healthy fruit to consumers in the USA.  The problem we have is with delivering Baobab Fruit in capsule form.

Baobab Fruit Needs to Be Eating In Larger Amounts Than 500mg

You see the Baobab Supplements that come in capsule form have 500mg per capsule.  This amount might be fine if you were taking a concentrated extract, but eating just 1/2 a gram of Baobab Fruit is not going to do anything.

For example, Blueberries are very nutritious, but how much benefits would you get from eating 1 Blueberry!  Baobab powder should be taken in grams, not milligrams.  We recommend you take 6 -12 grams of Baobab Fruit powder per day.  If you get Baobab in powder form, this is just 2-4 scoops of powder a day.  Mix that Baobab Fruit powder into a smoothie and you can easily work Baobab into your diet.

To get the same amount of Baobab Fruit into your diet via capsules, you would need to take 12-24 capsules per day.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t really like the idea of swallowing 24 capsules a day.  In addition, the Baobab Fruit powder has a nice mango citrus flavor to it and I actually want to be able to taste it.

Look for Organic Baobab Fruit Powder

A much better bet is to look for Organic Baobab Fruit in powder form.  We like the Limitless Baobab powder because it is 100% USDA Certified Organic and contains no other ingredients.  In addition, they have a number of social good programs in place which I think is very important.

I just checked over at Amazon.Com and they do have the Limitless Baobab and it is available for Prime shipping.  This means if you are a Prime member you can get it shipped free with 2 day delivery.

Have another brand of Baobab Powder that you have used and loved?  Leave us a comment and let us know.  Thanks!
