The Huffington Post asks Nutrition expert Michele Chevalley Hedge ….
So what is so great about the kakadu plum?
First of all, its extreme vitamin C potency, measuring 100 times that of an orange. This is particularly attractive to cosmetic companies developing skin treatments.
“Vitamin C greatly assists the process of collagen synthesis, which, in turn, protects our skin from premature aging,” nutritionist Michele Chevalley Hedge told HuffPost Australia.
“The amount of vitamin C found in the kakadu plum is extraordinary compared to what the normal consumer is used to. Yes, blueberries are highly concentrated as are oranges — but the kakadu plum blows them out of the water.”http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/2015/12/03/kakadu-plum_n_8642720.html
