Sorghum From Ancient Africa

Since the dawn of modern man, the sorghum plant in West Africa has been used by humans as a daily health supplement. Ancient africans valued sorghum for its variety of benefits, including blood building, antioxidant, anti inflammatory, and overall wellness benefits. They also believed in much more powerful claims such as aiding in the curing of sickle cell anemia, diabetes, and other more serious ailments. Today, you can enjoy these benefits in the modern world through Jobelyn.

What is Sorghum?

Simply put, sorghum is an ancient grain from West Africa. It has been cultivated for millenia and taken by ancient peoples for its multitude of health benefits. It is ground down into a powder and drank as tea or, for more convenient consumption, taken as a sorghum capsule such as Jobelyn.

Sorghum is the embodiment of what we consider a superfood today. Sorghum bicolor leaf powder (which is what Jobelyn encapsulates) can be used for baking, mixing into drinks, and cooking - and will provide the most nutritional content of all superfoods. It provides whole body wellness by enriching the many properties of your blood and joints.


Sorghum Uses

African tribal culture has long touted sorghum extract for its value in helping the health and wellbeing of people who struggle with anemia, heart disease, joint pain, and poor immune system response.

Sorghum’s core benefits lie with your blood and circulatory system. Blood is such an important component to how well our entire bodies function, that enriching it through a supplement like Jobelyn can make a huge impact on how you feel every day. Sorghum has antioxidant, anti inflammatory, and many other blood building benefits.

The civilizations of ancient Africa knew this, and now you do too: incorporating sorghum into your daily routine will help you feel better and recover faster.


How Sorghum is Farmed

Originating as a grass many millennia ago, sorghum has been cultivated over time by ancient Africans into a plant with large grains, similar to the journey that grassy corn has taken to be the edible plant we know today.

Sorghum bicolor is a drought resistant and heat tolerant plant. Although varieties of sorghum are grown in many parts of the world, sorghum bicolor is native to West Africa and grows best in its original, arid climate.

The reason why farmers in West Africa like to partner with Jobelyn is simple: they can grown the same crop year after year, knowing that they have a guaranteed buyer for their entire yield: Jobelyn. By partnering with us, they can bring more stability to their families and communities. We get something out of it too though - by partnering so closely with the farms, we can stipulate how their sorghum is grown and harvested to ensure we are only using the best in our supplements.
