The Moringa is also called the Miracle Tree and is considered one of the most nutritious plant in the planet. It is also known as horseradish tree, drumstick tree, clarifier tree. In East Africa moringa is known as " mother's best friend" and in the Philippines where it is widely used, it is called Malunggay. Our Moringa Leaves come from the Philippines.
Moringa trees grow very fast, as much as 15 feet a year!
The leaves of the Moringa oleifera tree can be consumed fresh, cooked or dried. Moringa is rich in many vitamins, including Vitamin A, several forms of Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Vitamin E. In fact, it has more of these vitamins than a variety of foods that all claim to be excellent sources of them, such as carrots, oranges and milk. Protein is a vital nutrient found in the leaves of this tree. There is twice as much calcium in Moringa leaves than in milk. Iron is found in large quantities in Moringa leaves as well. In fact, there is three times as much iron in this plant than in spinach.
We love moringa leaves and use them in a lot of our veggie dishes, especially in bean soups. Since dried Moringa leaves retain their nutrient content, it is also possible to make them into powder. Moringa leaf powder can be made and stored easily and is an excellent nutritional supplement and can be added to any dish or drink ( green smoothies) or made into tea.
