For centuries, Native Americans have used hickory bark extract for its healing properties, most notably as a treatment for arthritis. Hickory bark is the highest plant source of magnesium, which is an essential mineral for staying healthy and is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Magnesium is a macro-mineral, which, unlike trace-minerals (e.g., iodine, copper, zinc, iron, etc.), is needed in large amounts by the body. Multiple health benefits of magnesium include transmission of nerve impulses, body temperature regulation, detoxification, energy production, and the formation of healthy bones and teeth.
Hickory bark is gathered, scrubbed clean, toasted to enhance the flavor, put through a proprietary extraction process, aged, and filtered, before introducing a minimally refined cane sugar—turbinado—to develop an exquisite taste enjoyed the world over.
