What is Moringa Oleifera?
Moringa Oleifera is a plant native to Africa and India. It is a tall, thin tree that branches small but very nutritious leaves. It has been given many names; the drumstick tree, (because of the drumstick shape of the branches,) and the Horseradish tree (because of the strong, spicy taste of its nutritious leaves,) but because of its high nutrient content and health benefits, science has called Moringa Oleifera "The Miracle Tree."
Why Should I Use Moringa?
The benefits of Moringa are nothing short of miraculous! Did you know that, gram per gram, one serving of moringa contains: 4 x more calcium than milk, 3 x more potassium than bananas, 7 x more Vitamin C than oranges, 4 x the Vitamin A than Carrots, 9 x more iron than spinach, 2 x more protein than yogurt, and 4 x more fiber than oats.
It also contains LOTS of Vitamins: Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B7, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, and much more to help boost your energy, mood, mental clarity and contribute to your overall health.
How to Use Moringa
Moringa leaves can be eaten right from the tree. Simply pick the leaves, and add them to your favorite salads, soups, sauces and more. You can dry the leaves to make tea, and even use Moringa Powder in smoothies and drinks. However you enjoy it is up to you, but we can't think of a single reason why you SHOULDN'T enjoy the benefits of Moringa!
Moringa's nutritional benefits are not only in the leaves, but also in the seeds and flowers. The seeds have the ability to purify water within minutes, and the flowers have high nutrient content, and it is very popular to make tea with them by simply boiling them for 5 minutes. In an emergency situation or a food crisis, having raw Moringa Oleifera can sustain your health, as its high nutrient content can sustain a person even if all they had were moringa leaves and water.
