Did you know that Baobab is a legendary superfood? The power that comes from its tangy fruits is second to none! That’s why we are excited to announce the landing in our shops of a new and fresh caffeine-free energy drink based on this amazing ingredient: Unrooted Fresh Energy. Let’s find out more about this product.
UNROOTED: NO CAFFEINE. NO ADDED SUGAR. 100% NATURAL
“Like so many others, the only way our founder, Nathan, seemed to keep up with the long hours he was working was through guzzling countless coffees and other caffeine and sugar-laden drinks. As the healthy drinks revolution picked up pace he noticed that many energy drinks still had too much caffeine and too much sugar, regardless of how they were “dressed up” – caffeine from green coffee beans is still caffeine, and agave syrup is still sugar.”
It was this realization that led Nathan to discover the Baobab and the power of this African superfood himself on a trip to Kenya in early 2018. Being one of the most potent superfoods around, Baobab powder has been relied upon as a natural energy source across Africa for thousands of years!
That’s how the delicious and healthy Unrooted caffeine-free energy drinks were born. They are based on the Baobab power and come in 3 different flavours: Pomegranate, Mango and Ginger.
They have carefully crafted every step of their production process – from the storage of the ingredients to the temperature and duration of pasteurization – to ensure the highest levels of fibre, antioxidants and other nutrients are transferred directly from the Baobab fruit and in to the bottle!
WHAT IS BAOBAB?
Baobab is Africa’s most legendary superfood! Despite the Baobab’s reputation for being one of the world’s most ancient trees, it seems only now it is fully acknowledged as a source of one of the most potent superfoods around.
Baobab powder is extremely high in fibre and contains more than 5x the vitamin C of oranges! Plus, it is high in a vast array of micronutrients, such as potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron.
Baobab is energy but not as you know it! In fact, it is also a metabolic booster enabling your body to work harder to convert more of the carbs and fats it stores in its cells into energy. So, it gives your body the ingredients it needs to create its own energy!
Drinking Baobab fruit mixed with water every morning is a rich source of prebiotic fibre and vitamin C that helps to promote the growth of good bacteria in the gut. This helps to maintain your day-to-day energy levels naturally – without caffeine, chemicals and synthetic stimulants that inevitably lead to an energy crash and burn.
High in fibre
Baobab powder is incredibly high in fibre, approximately 50% by weight, comprised of 60% soluble fibre and 40% insoluble fibre – both crucial for maintaining a healthy gut.
Soluble fibre, or dietary fibre, is important for many things. It acts as a regulator of your blood sugars by adjusting the release of sugars from your stored reserves into your blood, which helps to reduce energy spikes and crashes throughout the day. Soluble fibre is also a prebiotic – prebiotics keep your gut healthy & happy by creating an environment where your body’s good bacteria (probiotics) can thrive.
Insoluble fibre, on the other hand, also has many other gut benefits, specifically related to digestion.
Unrooted contains 10 grams of Baobab powder per bottle – or up to 15% of your daily recommended fibre intake.
Baobab is packed full of antioxidants, having more than pomegranates and cranberries combined on a gram for gram basis.
In particular, Baobab has high levels of vitamin C, which, combined with the vast array of micronutrients found in Baobab, is key to both maintaining and boosting your metabolism, thereby keeping your energy levels elevated naturally.
Baobab also has a relatively high concentration of amino acids, including several which are known for their energy boosting properties.
