Indigenous to Madagascar, Australia, and Africa, baobab has been praised for its magical medicinal and nutritional properties for thousands of years. The tangy fruit dries naturally on its own branches and is full of alkalizing and energizing nutrients. Baobab is especially high in Vitamin C, antioxidants, and fiber, which help fortify internal health AND external beauty.
Why we love it:
- Aids muscles in exercise recovery with powerful anti-inflammatory properties
- Functions as a prebiotic, which aids digestion and gut health
- High amounts of antioxidants help boost the immune system
- Citrusy flavour is great in smoothies, baked goods and even savoury dishes
