Carob contains chemicals called tannins, which decrease the effectiveness of certain substances (enzymes) that help with digestion. Carob might cause weight loss, reduce blood sugar and insulin levels, and lower cholesterol levels.
Possibly Effective for:
Diarrhea. Some research suggests drinking juice extracted from raw carob bean or taking carob pod powder just prior to taking a standard oral rehydration solution (ORS) reduces the duration of symptoms in children and infants with acute diarrhea.
High cholesterol. Early research suggests that taking carob pulp or a specific carob product (Caromax, Nutrinova, Frankfurt, Germany) by mouth for up to 6 weeks reduces total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL or “bad”) cholesterol in people with moderately high cholesterol.
Use of the carob:
Adult (over 18 years)
No toxicological study was undertaken to determine the maximum dose to use. Therefore, to rely on traditionally used doses, or 20 to 30 g of carob powder dissolved in a hot liquid such as water, tea or milk, once per day.
Children (under 18 years)
Its use is not recommended because the effective and harmless carob doses have not yet been scientifically determined
The carob treats hypercholesterolemia
The high-fibre of the carob suggests that it could reduce blood cholesterol levels. In 2010, researchers studied the effects of consumption of carob fibers rich in polyphenols on 88 individuals with hypercholesterolemia. The results of this study indicate that this consumption decreases after a month the levels of total cholesterol (-18%), LDL cholesterol 'bad cholesterol' (26%) and triglycerides (-16%)
Carob is generally safe for consumption. Even for children, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers.
