Mothers in Tanzania are known to give their sick children baobab fruit powder dissolved in water for dehydration and diarrhea. Scientists in Senegal demonstrated how effective this therapy was as early as 1997.
A clinical study compared the effectiveness of such a baobab fruit powder solution in treating dehydration and diarrhea in children with the WHO-standard artificial electrolyte solution. This WHO solution is based on a scientifically developed formula.
The youngest children in this study were six months old, and the mean age was 16.6 +/- 8.8 months. Seventy-nine children received the WHO electrolyte solution, and 82 received the baobab fruit powder solution. Subsequently, the development of diarrhea and weight gain was measured and evaluated.
The impressive result of the study: the course of recovery (measured as relief of diarrhea and weight gain) showed no significant difference between the two treatment methods.
The medical effectiveness of the natural healing therapy with baobab by the mothers from Tanzania could thus now also be scientifically proven.
