The majestic baobab tree is an icon of the African continent and lies at the heart of many traditional African remedies and folklore.

The baobab is a prehistoric species which predates both mankind and the splitting of the continents over 200 million years ago. Native to the African savannah where the climate is extremely dry and arid, it is a symbol of life and positivity in a landscape where little else can thrive.  Over time, the Baobab has adapted to its environment. It is a succulent, which means that during the rainy season it absorbs and stores water in its vast trunk, enabling it to produce a nutrient-dense fruit in the dry season when all around is dry and arid. This is how it became known as “The Tree of Life”.

What is Baobab?

Known as Queen of the Superfruits, it has been long used by Africans as a source of easily digested nutrients and super fiber, electrolytes, vitamins, minerals with an abundance of antioxidants delivering 5,500 ORAC units per 10g serve.
