Baobab, The Tree of Life

At 2,000 Years Old, this tree is truly life giving:  it holds up to 4,500 liters of water, fibers from the bark can be turned into rope and cloth and fresh leaves are often eaten to boost the immune system.  The medicinal properties of the baobab fruit are amazing: 3 times as much Vitamin C as an orange, 50% more Calcium than spinach, and it is a plentiful source of disease fighting antioxidants credited with helping reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.
