About Baobab The Baobab is a deciduous tree that’s native to Madagascar which is rich in myth and legend, with a number of unique qualities. Firstly, it is one of the largest trees in the World, reaching up to 40m in height, spanning 15m wide. It is also one of the most ancient; the oldest known Baobab is estimated to be 1,060 years old.
Baobab is known by many names; The Tree of Life because of its use in traditional African medicine. The Upside Down Tree because its branches resemble roots, said to point to the sky to receive heavenly wisdom and strength. The Vitamin Tree because of its super-nutritious fruits.
Baobab powder is made from the tree’s yellow/grey, coconut-sized fruits, often referred to as the ‘King of Super Fruits.’ The fruit is distinctive because it dries naturally on its own branches before harvesting. It requires no processing, is simply ground into a fine powder.
