The Kakadu Plum is a small fruit found in the Eucalypt open woodlands across Northern Australia.
In traditional medicine, Kakadu plums were used to treat colds, the flu, and headaches. They were also utilised as an antiseptic or soothing balm for the limbs.
What is a Kakadu Plum?
"It’s pale green with a stone in the centre, over half an inch long, and weighs 2–5 grams. It’s fibrous and has a tart, bitter taste. Kakadu Plum has been used for centuries as an orthodox method for the treatment of many diseases and as an antiseptic. It is best known for its skin lightening, and anti-ageing benefits."
Benefits of Kakadu Plum
Kakadu Plum is extremely high in Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that boosts the immune system, reduces stress, and may play a role in collagen synthesis, iron absorption, heart health, memory, and cognition.
High in Anti-oxidants. Kakadu plum can contain up to 13 times the amount of anti-oxidants than Blueberries which is highly regarded as a superfood itself. Anti-oxidants help reduce free radicals from sources such as smoking and air pollution. Free radicals have been linked to diabetes, auto-immune conditions, heart disease and kidney disease. Anti oxidants help protect your skin cells against free radicals.
Kakadu plum is used in many nourishing facial creams and masks. This gives a natural shine and glow to the skin. It can also prevent ageing of the skin.
It is also effective to prevent or control fungal and bacterial infections. This is proven to be an excellent wound healer and to help treat psoriasis.
Kakadu plum gives moisture and hydration to your hair. It maintains the level of collagen and elastin, which are critical for healthy, shiny hair. This also adds instant hydrating and de-tangling to your hair. Regular use of a shampoo containing Kakadu Plum can smooth and hydrate normal to dry hair.
