Of course, every bride wants to be the best version of herself on her wedding day — healthy and glowing skin, tonnes of energy and generally feeling in tip top condition. That’s why it is important to start nourishing your body in the months leading up to the big day.
Baobab fruit – nature’s answer to glowing skin, increased energy and feeling great on your wedding day
Enter baobab, the ancient fruit that’s been used for centuries by the women of Africa as a natural source of wellbeing. Baobab trees grow in 32 different countries in Africa. It’s fruit is unusual in that it dries on the branch, producing a 100% natural and organic superfood powder.
Baobab powder is rich in vitamin C (6x that of an orange) and extremely high in fibre (50%). One of the key benefits of vitamin C is that it helps to keep our immune system strong and healthy, preventing illnesses and ailments - a blessing in disguise when constant wedding planning and organising takes its toll on your body. Vitamin C also contributes to normal energy release, so you won’t get any unwelcome crashes on the big day.
The Journal of Nutrition reported that baobab has the highest antioxidant content of any fruit, twice the antioxidants gram per gram of goji berries and more than blueberries and pomegranates combined. Antioxidants are a key anti-ageing ingredient to have in your beauty arsenal, particularly in the lead up to your wedding, as they support collagen formation - helping to give you a radiant, smooth complexion. A natural way to get the glow from the inside out.
One bride, who religiously took baobab for 2 months in the lead up to her wedding, noticed big benefits. 40 year Camilla Casey from London, founder of 'Love Letters London' who create personalised gifts for babies and children, said “the first difference I noticed was a dramatic difference in my energy levels- within days I felt more alert and alive; ready to be productive with wedding planning. It was also remarkable what a difference baobab made to my skin, I was truly glowing! I was constantly getting compliments from friends and family about how great my skin looked, particularly on the big day.”
