Moringa is a super unusual tree because not only is it incredibly nutritious, and highly valued for its medicinal properties, but absolutely every part of it, from its roots to its flowers has been used for thousands of years to benefit people all over the world. The cuttings and branches can be used as animal feed or mulch… so absolutely nothing goes to waste! The handy little tree, right?!
Moringa is like a “vegetable tree,” loaded with health and beauty supporting vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, making it a true superfood in every sense of the word. The Moringa tree originates from India, where it has been prized for thousands of years, both as a bountiful source of nutrition, and a robust curative featured heavily in the ancient Ayurveda Medicine tradition.
Called by some cultures “The Miracle Tree,” it is said to be effective in treating upwards of 300 conditions.
Moringa oleifera scored the highest in antioxidant content of any food yet discovered. Beating the record-holding acai berry by over a 50%margin, Moringa oleifera leaf powder measured over 157,000 umoles using the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) system of measurement.
