This is one of the most venerable fruits known to man with a long history of cultivation throughout the world. Indigo Herbs has, as a salute to this super nourishing fruit, a very high quality Organic Raw Banana Powder. This powder is a super modern alternative which will keep longer but still has all the same amazing benefits of fresh Banana. Slow dried and finely milled, this powder will be a great addition to any smoothie at any time of the year.
The origins of the humble Banana are thought to be a bit of mystery. The first known region to have cultivated the fruit was in the Kuk valley in New Guinea around 8,000 BCE. There may have been other cultures who cultivated the banana but lost the fruit through drought or maybe disease. It is thought that the Banana then spread to the Philippine Islands and then India within the first two millennia. There exists within Buddhist literature mention of Bananas around 600 BCE and Alexander the Great found Bananas in India in 327 BCE. Another anomaly in the history of the Banana is that the fruit could have arrived in South America before the first Europeans in 200 BCE.
After the eventual spread of the Banana throughout the world it became an important crop for colonial plantations. The Banana trees were used to shade the more important crops of cacao, peppers and coffee. These three crops rely on intermittent periods of sunlight which were provided by the wide fan leaves of the Banana tree. Also the Banana wasn’t so labour intensive to and required less care to grow.
There are many different varieties of Banana which have been produced in order to provide Bananas for the mass market. Today, the most popular Banana variety is Cavendish because of its resistance to Panama disease. All bananas come from two main wild varieties, Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana and have varying lengths but the same wide long green vibrant fan leaves. Fruits grow in bunches that usually hang from the top of the main trunk while flowers disperse from the bottom of the fruit bunch.
This is my second order which was just as fast as the first great service both times. Love the hemp tea I find it refreshing and now I have been drinking it for at least a month I've found that it does lift my mood and relax me and I have been sleeping much better. I think it is also starting to help with my fibromyalgia this could be down to the fact it makes me feel more relaxed and sleeping better. meaning that I feel more motivated to stick my new self care progamme of healthy living and meditation and yoga and body awareness.
I a considering looking at other products that may benifit myself.
