Horopito - What you need to know?

Horopito is an incredibly unique herb with a spicy, aromatic and earthy taste. 
A 'native food' that was embraced by the European settlers after witnessing the Maori using horopito and kawakawa for its medicinal properties.

Horopito (Pseudowintera Colorata) is only found in New Zealand.  The oldest flowering plant surviving 65 million years with a superb polygodial defense system. Horopito is loaded with antioxidants that has enabled it to evolve through climate change. 

When not used for cooking, Horopito is primarily used as a natural way to target candida overgrowth and its symptoms which include yeast infections, fatigue, skin irritation and unexplained weight gain.  However, we say with its spicy pepper and earthy flavours... it simply tastes great!
