The baobab tree is one of the largest and oldest trees found in Africa, Australia and the Middle East – carbon dating indicates that these trees can live 3,000+ years. In addition to providing food and shelter, the fruit, leaves, and bark of the mighty tree have been used medicinally for centuries in natural remedies for everything from fever to digestive issues. The fruit on the baobab tree resembles a large mango or coconut measuring up to 7 inches long and weighing 3.5 pounds. It consists of a hard outer shell filled with pulp that dehydrates naturally as the fruit matures. When the pulp of this fruit is ground into powder it is known simply as baobab powder. This substance contains a powerhouse of nutrients including vitamin C, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, and an assortment of antioxidants.
