The largest tree of our mother earth, called the Magic Tree by African people. The ‘Tree of Life’, offers a wonderful existence hidden in the fruit powder itself. It stands out for its vitamin C capacity, doubling that of goji, and its effect on pain, virus and other health problems.

Our Organic Baobab Pulp is originally from Senegal where villagers harvest the fruit in the interest of fair trade. It is sold in a pot of "purple glass" or “Myron Glass” designed to protect against oxidation.
The baobab is called Tree of Life, Magic Tree by Africans, who considered their traditional medicinal plant for its many uses and its antiviral and anti-infectious properties. The baobab has fascinated people since ancient times, it lives for over 500 years, reaching 20 meters high and its trunk can measure 12 meters in circumference! Baobab Adansonia Digitata is part of the Bombacacea family. Several parts of the Baobab are used, such as roots, leaves, bark, fruit and seeds. Their Fruits are the most interesting for us with their white pulp, which once dried, naturally, falls to the ground in its final powder form. This Baobab powder is then directly used without transformation allowing it to retain all of its properties. The seeds of the fruit is extracted firstly and made into a cold pressed oil - exceptionally moisturizing care with great penetrating power.
According to scientific research, Baobab powder, can help rebalance and better main functions of the body, skin tone and texture as well as delivering maximum energy and strength with only 5 grams of pulp per day.
The effects and activities of Baobab powder:

Anti micro goat - streptococcus, staphylococcus, E. coli, Candida albicans Anti-inflammatory: studies in our laboratory have shown that the aqueous extract of the fruit contains sterols and tritherpenes responsible for this high power anti-inflammatory, Analgesic Anti infective and Febrifuge Anti-dysentery antidiarrheal. The fruit is able to deliver these effects through astringent tannins and mucilages inhibiting pre biotic activity, thus improving the balance of intestinal microflora, lactose digestion, immuno stimulatory activity (regulator for cholesterol in blood sugar) and the balance of mood Anti anemic
