What is the Acacia Fibre Powder?
Acacia fibre powder is a white powder that has been made from the pulp of the acacia tree. The acacia tree, also known as the shrub of origin, is a large deciduous tree found in Africa. The tree produces small green flowers that turn into pods with black seeds attached to each flower. These seeds are then removed and ground up to become Acacia Fibre Powder.
Acacia fibre powder is also known as Acacia Bark or Acacia Powder. The acacia tree is native to southwest Africa and grows best in hot climates. Many people consider this tree an endangered species due to deforestation, especially near cities like Johannesburg. Some people believe the acacia tree is sensitive to cold temperatures, and others don't know it so well. The acacia tree grows to be 30-60 feet high. It has thick, dark green leaves and, like most trees, one trunk with long branches. The acacia tree makes up about 4% of the trees in Africa. Acacia fibre powder is used to make gel caps that are easily digestible to humans.
Acacia fibre powder is made by harvesting the bark of the acacia tree. The bark is stripped off of the tree and dried out in the sun. After it has dried out all of the ways, it is ground up into a powder using an industrial-sized grinder. It is used for health benefits but also for its soluble properties.
Is NOW Acacia Fibre Powder good for you?
Acacia is a natural insecticide that prevents the growth of fungus on human skin. It is safe to use on children, animals and adults. Acacia acts as a natural antibacterial on the skin and inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi. It also acts as an antiseptic to aid in the healing of wounds on the skin. Acacia is added to baby powder, skin lotions and creams. It is used in food products such as soups and sauces to prevent fungus growth during the manufacturing process. Acacia helps with digestion by supporting healthy bacteria in the intestines.
Why do people need NOW Acacia Fibre Powder?
Acacia fibre powder has more benefits for health than other fibres like wheat bran or rice bran powder. It has excellent health benefits to promote weight loss, improve digestion and intestinal health.
Acacia fibre powder is a good source of dietary fibre. It is a low-energy food containing soluble fibre, which means it passes through the digestive system without being digested. This is especially profitable for people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome as spasms of the digestive tract caused by the condition are reduced by consuming acacia fibre. Acacia improves digestion, maintains the colon healthy and helps with the elimination of toxins.
Acacia is also effective in controlling diabetes and helps to regulate insulin levels in the body. It is also helpful in the treatment of heart disease, arthritis, back pain and muscle aches.
Acacia is rich in soluble fibre content and keeps the bowel tissues healthy by preventing constipation or diarrhea. The insoluble fibres contain arabinoxylans that bind bile acids to prevent them from being broken down by the liver. This prevents cholesterol from being formed when they are excreted through bile. This is because of its low glycemic index, which means that it is not easily broken down into sugar in the body and may cause blood sugar spikes.
