Kakadu Plum (60 vegetarian capsules)
Introducing our Smidge® Kakadu Plum capsules. Made from a tiny fruit (with an adorable name!) that boasts the world's most abundant natural source of vitamin C. And nothing else.
This real food supplement is 100% Australian and hand-harvested down under in small batches.
Like all Smidge® supplements, our Kakadu Plum is as pure as can be. It's made entirely from the fresh puree of the fruit, which is dehydrated with a gentle drying technique called refractance window drying — a unique method that uses infrared light, rather than high heat, to remove water from food. This method is unmatched in preserving the fruit's natural vitamin C. It also enables your body to absorb and use the vitamin C, rather than excreting large amounts shortly after consuming the harsh, synthetic stuff (leaving you with inflammation in the gut or urinary tract).*
Free of common allergens and additives, our Kakadu Plum capsules are easy on those with sensitive digestive systems and fit right in with many dietary protocols. You also won't find ascorbic acid, which is the synthetic form of vitamin C in most commercial supplements (even food-based), that can cause nutrient imbalances and negative side effects.*
Here's the rub with ascorbic acid… Most "food-based" vitamin C supplements are fortified with ascorbic acid, even though it's not listed on the label. For example, you can purchase raw material, such as acerola powder, that is "standardized" to a certain vitamin C percentage. During the production, heat destroys some (or most) of the vitamin C in the acerola powder and ascorbic acid is added to standardize the vitamin C levels. A supplement company may unwittingly buy "all-natural acerola powder" and not realize (or disclose) that up to 100% of the vitamin C is actually fortified ascorbic acid.
One serving of Smidge Kakadu Plum contains nearly 75% of your daily value of vitamin C. But please note that the levels will vary, since this is a fresh, natural supplement!
60 capsules (1-month supply)
Natural vitamin C from Kakadu plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) powder
This amazing, cherry-sized fruit grows abundantly on the tall Kakadu tree in Northern and Western Australia. It has a thick skin and a small nut at its center (we make your supplement from the freshly-picked fruit's flesh). Unlike traditional plums, the taste is tart, not sweet.
In every Kakadu Plum capsule, you'll find heaps of naturally occurring vitamin C, a vital nutrient for robust health. Vitamin C is water-soluble and occurs naturally in some foods, helping form and maintain bones, skin and blood vessels; supporting immunity and shielding cells from free radicals.*
