Discover the Baobab Health Benefits
Known as the “Tree of Life” or the “monkey-bread tree,” the baobab tree has held important significance in Africa for centuries. The baobab tree is a symbol of sustenance and life due its adaption to the harsh arid climate; the baobab tree is able to store water in its vast trunk in order to survive the dry season. Rooted in African culture, the baobab tree has also been used for medicinal purposes for centuries – treating malaria, gastric problems, and as a calcium supplement for pregnant women.

That’s 10 times as much as an equal serving of fresh oranges!
