The Ultimate Bush Superfood
Commercial harvest of Kakadu Plum commenced in the late 1990s. The majority of production still stems from wild harvest, which requires government permits. There are also a handful of small orchards. Ancient Purity work with a Wild Harvesting company. Kakadu Plum displays superior antioxidant properties, containing both water-and oil-soluble antioxidants which are often low in common fruits and vegetables. The fruit contains vitamin E, lutein (a compound that plays an important role in eye health and wellbeing), folate, zinc, magnesium and calcium. Kakadu plum also has a high potassium:sodium ratio, which may assist to develop foods to reduce hypertension.
The Australian Superfruit is still being researched, one study published in Food Chemistry gathered information of the various levels of phenolic compounds, vitamin C, sugars and antioxidant capacities of Kakadu Plum. The hydrolysable tannins and ellagic acid were identified as the major phenolic compounds and have placed this plum in the category that deems it safe and effective for use in the nutraceutical industry and for food processors. It is used in topical skincare products, it's the ultimate smoothie addition and a spoon full in yoghurt, dessert or a breakfast cereal will turn any into a superfood dish as its low in calories and rich in nutrients and also a quality source of fibre.

Kakadu's Anti-Ageing Boost
Kakadu Plum maintains a youthful glow... A study on Kakadu Plum from the Beeson Aesthetic Surgery Institute in Indiana showed that with at least 3months of use of a topical vitamin C application, significant results were visible in the reduction of wrinkles, along with skin texture and skin tone changes. Vitamin C has the ability to reduce wrinkles and age spots. Vitamin C provides collagen support, can reduce hyper pigmentation and can prevent skin changes caused by photoageing. Additionally, this plum contains trace minerals and antioxidants that nourish and invigorate the skin, including vitamin E, zinc, iron, folate and lutein, all of which can help prevent premature ageing. Kakadu plums are the natural enemy of redness and inflammation. This makes Kakadu ideal for sensitive skin types, especially those with inflammatory skin conditions. Topical Kakadu Plum powder could help preserve your skin’s immunity, keeping it strong and protected. At Ancient Purity we'd suggested mixing a little in with pure water or add to a pinch to your natural skin cream and rub it in gracefully. Also Vitamin C (and Kakadu has tons of that) impedes production of melanin, aka the skin pigment behind your dark marks. So brighten up, glow, feel good, invest in this natural Superfruit... See and feel the benefits, inside out. You can also now find Kakadu Plum in many luxury hair products.
Edith Cowan University’s Foundation of Ageing and Alzheimer’s Disease explains that the Kakadu Plum contains antioxidant properties stronger than curcumin, which is what places turmeric so high on the list of superfoods. The foundation states that the Kakadu Plum has protective abilities that make it more powerful than turmeric. Since the antioxidants in the Kakadu plum fight free radical damage, this fruit may also work as a potential cognitive health solution. Beta-amyloid is the toxic agent in Alzheimer’s that kills brain cells and researchers are exploring if they expose the cells to beta-amyloid in the presence of an extract from the Kakadu Plum, will the cells be rescued. Researchers are very confident that this antioxidant is more powerful when compared to the antioxidants they know that have some benefit for cognitive health. At Ancient Purity we don't believe there is one magic bullet but full spectrum Natural Health of Mind, Body & Spirit and Kakadu Plum is a powerful superfood to include. If you want to super upgrade your smoothies or rub it in your skin you'll experience magic.
Kakadu Plum... Ancient Indigenous Superfood
The Kakadu Plum (Terminalia Ferdinandiana)
Terminalia ferdinandiana, also called the gubinge, billygoat plum, Kakadu plum, green plum, salty plum, murunga or mador, is a flowering plant in the family Combretaceae, native to Australia, widespread throughout the tropical woodlands from northwestern Australia to eastern Arnhem Land. Terminalia ferdinandiana is a slender, small to medium-sized tree growing up to 14m (46 ft) in height, with creamy-grey, flaky bark and deciduous pale green leaves. The flowers are small, creamy-white, perfumed, and borne along spikes in the leaf axils towards the ends of the branches. Flowering is from September to December. (Southern hemisphere spring/summer.) The leaf blades are strongly discolorous with a broadly elliptic to broadly ovate, occasionally obovate shape and are 11 to 33 centimetres (4.3 to 13.0 in) in length with a width of 8.5 to 23 centimetres (3.3 to 9.1 in) and have a rounded apex. The inflorescences are 16 to 19 centimetres (6.3 to 7.5 in) long and are glabrous throughout.
The fruit is yellow-green, about 2 cm (0.79 in) long and 1 cm (0.39 in) in diameter, almond-sized with a short beak at the tip, and contain one large seed. They ripen from March onwards. The species epithet "ferdinandiana" was created by A.W. Exell in honor of the first European botanist to collect and describe Kakadu plum, Ferdinand Mueller, who had originally given the species the nomen illegitimum (illegitimate name), Terminalia edulis. The tree is found along the coast in the Kimberley region of Western Australia as far west as Broome extending east into the Northern Territory. It grows in a variety of habitat including sandplains, floodplains, creek beds, ridges, among vine thickets and on the edges of areas of mangroves. It grows in sandy, peaty or clay soils around sandstone or ironstone. In the Northern Territory the tree is found mostly in the western portion of the top end from the Western Australian border to Arnhem Land but is found as far east as Limmen National Park. It is often found as part of Eucalypt communities.
The Superfruit of the next Generation
It's Vitamin C
Some of the most exciting research to emerge in recent years about vitamin C is its potential positive effects on your bloods vessels. Exercising regularly is vital to be really healthy and it appears so is a daily dose of Vitamin C. It's especially for sedentary, overweight or obese adults. Keep in mind, no matter your age or physical shape, daily exercise is key to not only looking and feeling good, but it’s important for all your cells and body functions. In our view, there is no replacement for exercise. If you’re just starting out, take it slowly to build up your tolerance. Researchers wanted to take a closer look at earlier findings that vitamin C supplements positively affect blood vessel function.
A total of 35 sedentary, overweight or obese adults entered the 3-month study. Obese and overweight adults tend to have higher levels of activity of a certain protein that constricts blood vessels, putting those adults at higher risk. About half of the participants did regular aerobic exercise training such as walking and the other half took a daily dose of 500 mg of regular oral vitamin C. Measuring markers for the vessel-constricting protein activity, the researchers found that both groups responded equally in a positive manner. What may matter most with Vitamin C and how it supports heart and vascular health is your plasma vitamin C levels. Eating a Vitamin C-rich diet daily or supplementing regularly with vitamin C tends to raise plasma levels.
