So, What Is A Lost Crop Anyway?

So, What Is A Lost Crop Anyway?

·
Written by Carmen Eulberg

Dr. Luc Maes says it best:

“Kaibae uses wild crafted plants, as nature intended, not modified by man. Nature shaped these plants in the wild, concentrating vital nutrients, making them hardy and beautiful, ensuring longevity in the harsh environments of the Ocean, the Amazon and the Savanna. There is a wisdom within plants that organize their nutrients to live long. It is that wisdom that Kaibae is bottling to make people healthy and beautiful.

These plants once lost now are found, and they are precious to the survival of the planet and humanity.” -Dr. Luc Maes, Kaibae Co-Founder
