Baobab is probably the most well-known African tree and often one of the longest lived. The leaves, bark, and fruit of this bottle-shaped "tree of life" are used for both food and medicine in southern Africa.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.

Please enjoy this information on baobab made available through the generosity of DMH Ingredients’ adoption.
