Moringa

moringa

If you think "What is moringa?" Are not you the only one. It is a relative newcomer in the regular health community. Originally native to the foothills of the Himalayas in India, it is now grown all over the world in most tropical, subtropical and semi-arid areas.

Moringa is an incredibly nutritious superfood! It has seven times the amount of vitamin C as in oranges, four times as much calcium and the double number of proteins as in milk, four times the vitamin A compared to carrots and three times the potassium content as in bananas! Moringa tree leaves even recorded a higher ORAC score (157,000!) Than most of the anitoxidant superfoods traditionally spoken of, such as Acai berries, green tea, blueberries, dark chocolate, garlic, goji berries, pomegranates and red wine! Especially at the places in the world where people do not have a broad range, moringa trees keep people healthy. One nickname for it is "vitamin tree" - with good reason! It often occurs in those regions that local people pull off the young leaves and chew on them. It harbors them of a new load of vitamins and nutrients in the few handfuls.
The moringa family has 13 species that are present in tropical and subtropical climates. They all look very different, from small plants to tall trees. The most cultivated variety is Moringa oleifera.
