Baobab: The 2015 Superfruit for Beautiful Skin
originally published on beautystylewatch.com
I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but there is a superfruit that’s stealing the crown from acai, goji berries and pomegranates this year. Foods rich in vitamin C and antioxidants are essential for those seeking healthy, glowing skin. Baobab, known as the “Queen of Superfruits” is an African wild-harvested fruit that is naturally bursting with essential minerals and nutrients, as well as both antioxidants and vitamin c.
Baobab is harvested from the African baobab tree. The pulp dries naturally inside pods on the tree and once harvested, the pulp is milled into powder, sieved and packaged – with absolutely nothing added! Baobab is available in raw fruit powder and BaoBites—bite-size fruit morsels that are made with the fruit powder, real fruit concentrates and pectin, and are perfect for adding some zing to snacking, baking, trail mixes and more. The superfruit has a light and subtly tangy flavor that blends perfectly with other fruit flavors, making it a nutrient-rich addition to yogurt, smoothies, oatmeal, sports drinks… The options are endless!
Beauty benefits include:
- Promotes collagen production: high levels of vitamin c protect cells from oxidative stress and contribute to the formation of collagen and the regeneration of vitamin e, which protects and repairs the skin while reducing wrinkles and fine lines and providing a healthy glow.
- Reduce the visible signs of aging: high polyphenol content and antioxidant levels (the highest of any fruit) help neutralize free radicals, naturally detoxifying and aiding in the prevention premature aging by retaining skin’s elasticity – keeping it strong and smooth.
