What is Swanson Organic Kakadu Plum Juice Blend?
There is a growing school of thought that the near inhospitable terrains of the arid Australian outback could well be concealing some of nature’s most complete natural sources of benefits. A recent point in case being the Kakadu Plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana).
Also known as Gubinge, Gurumal, Billygoat Plum or Murunga by the indigenous natives, this traditional ‘bush food’ has been a source of nutrition for travelers and natives alike for some time now. With the expertise and research of nutritional scientists, it has now been confirmed that the Kakadu Plum is more than just a tasty snack, it’s also incredibly good for you.
The fruit itself actually looks something more akin to a gooseberry than a plum but its appearance aside, Kakadu Plum is unquestionably now being hailed as the world’s newest superfood.
Perhaps what makes the Kakadu Plum stand out is its incredibly high concentration of Vitamin C. So high is it in fact that common belief now holds that the Plum possesses more Vitamin C than any other fruit on earth.
- Studies have shown the concentration of Vitamin C in Kakadu Plum to be around 3200-5000 mg/100 g
- Oranges only have 50 mg/100 g.
- Blended with tart cherry juice, lemon juice and camu camu juice to create a fruity concentration that can be taken on its own or with sparkling water to create an incredibly healthy, thirst quenching spritzer.
What is Swanson Organic Kakadu Plum Juice Blend used for?
It doesn’t always happen but it’s always great when something healthy is also something delicious. Fortunately for us, Swanson Organic Kakadu Plum Juice Blend prides itself on possessing that particularly unique combination of qualities.
Because the Kakadu Plum is so rich in Vitamin C, we can already assume that it is a great way to boost your immune system, but what of its other benefits?
A range of other phytonutrients (some of which are unique to the Kakadu Plum) mean that this juice offers you not only a great way to protect your immune system but also a fantastic means to boost your antioxidant profile and protect your skin too.
What makes the relatively huge amounts of Vitamin C in Swanson Organic Kakadu Plum Juice Blend so good for your skin is down to the role it plays in creating an amino acid called Proline. Without Proline, we can’t make collagen, and as many of you know, collagen is essential to the production of new skin cells, regardless of your age.
That’s why Kakadu plum is now being seen as a great new tool in the fight against the ravaging effects of ageing on our skin.
Swanson Organic Kakadu Plum Juice Blend is the most delicious way to keep you feeling and looking your absolute best, all year round.
