THE MIRACLE TREE
A native of Indian soil, Moringa Oleifera can now be found in many countries around the globe and have grown to 13 different species. However, its beneficial properties are still usually overlooked and tends to be underutilized.
Every part of Moringa, including the seeds and roots, are not just consumed but in fact, can be very useful in treating many illnesses like lung diseases, hypertension, chest pains, as well as skin infections. The plant is also useful in balancing metabolism and boosts energy. Moringa contains antioxidants, multivitamins, phytochemicals and contains all of the essential amino acids, which itself is rare among vegetables.
This vegetable is also considered as an important food source in some parts of the world as it battles against malnutrition. It can be grown cheaply and easily, and the leaves still retains its nutrients when dried.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has undertaken scientific researches on the Moringa plant, and has come to the conclusion that it is truly nutritional and medicinal. The benefits have also been documented in some medical and nutritional journals as well.
Moringa Oleifera is also notable for scoring the highest in the standard ORAC test.
