Moringa Oleifera

Moringa contains more that 90 nutrients, 46 antioxidants, and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds. It also has 18 amino acids, including the 8 essentials that our bodies need to survive but cannot manufacture ourselves (and must be supplied through diet). All this is 100% naturally occurring in the Moringa, whereas most multivitamins and calcium supplements available on the market are made using synthetic ingredients that the human body absorbs very minimal nutrients from.

In fact, in 2008 the National Institute of Health called moringa (moringa oleifera) the “plant of the year,” acknowledging that “perhaps like no other single species, this plant has the potential to help reverse multiple major environmental problems and provide for many unmet human needs.”

Moringa has been advocated as a natural nutrition for the tropics and is being used to combat malnutrition (due to its high protein and fibre content) by major NGOs such as Trees for Life International, Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization, and Volunteer Partnerships for West Africa.

Throughout the world, moringa is used for treating such widespread conditions as

  • inflammation-related diseases
  • cancer
  • diabetes

Moringa contains:

  • two times the amount of protein of yogurt

  • three times the amount of Potassium as bananas
  • four times the amount of Calcium as cows’ milk
  • seven times the amount of vitamin C as oranges
