What is Moringa?
Moringa is a tree that is said to have originated in northern India close to the Himalayan Mountains. This tree became famous thousands of years ago for its medicinal properties and is believed to been traded in mass quantities. This explains its now current locations being more subtropical and located on the old major trade routes.
There are 12 different types of moringa plants, but the most popular and most nutritious is by far Moringa Oleifera. This leaves from this moringa tree have been used to treat over 300 diseases in Indian medicine. In addition, the crushed leaves provide one of the most holistic nutritional palates ever seen by plant matter.
Ounce for ounce, the crushed moringa leaves contain 7 times the amount of vitamin C as oranges, 3 times the potassium as bananas, 4 times the vitamin a as carrots, 2 times the protein and 4 times the calcium as milk! It also contains 20 amino acids and all of the essential amino acids. Moringa is also high in antioxidants and is a great source of leafy green protein. Unbelievable right? I think so too and so do the people who are in the know. This plant is currently being used in Africa to treat malnourished children and its working like gangbusters.
But it does not end there, the Malunggay (as it is called in Africa) tree is multi purpose. The seeds can be pressed to get a very clean burning cooking oil and the pulp left over can be used to purify water. The bark can be used as an antiseptic and the roots are often used in cooking.
Currently they are creating a spray for livestock food and crops from the moringa tree and its producing unbelievable results. From bigger plants to more milk production in the cows, Moringa truly is a miracle tree!
Everyone should be taking moringa on a daily basis to support their overall health. No where else in the world can you get this type of holistic supplementation from a plant.
