The Moringa Oleifera is believed to be the worlds most nutritious tree. Since a documentary about this unique tree was shown on  the Discovery Channel in 2001, people across the globe have sat up and taken notice of this amazing tree and the health benefits it boasts. Now widely used in many preparations around the world, here is a brief overview of the health benefits of the Moringa tree.
  • It is thought that the Moringa has the highest ratio of protein of any plant on earth
  • There are 46 antioxidants and 90 nutrients contained in a Moringa
  • There are over 300 references to Moringa in folk medicine recipes
  • The Moringa tree contains 4 times the calcium of whole milk, 4 times the vitamin A of a carrot, 2 time the protein of a yoghurt, 3 times the potassium of a banana and 7 times the vitamin C of an orange.
  • It nourishes and boosts the body's immune system

  • Moringa boasts natural anti-ageing properties
  • It promotes a healthy digestion system
  • The Moringa increases mental clarity as well as boosting energy
Moringa is widely recognised across the globe as an outstanding source of nutrition by The National Science Foundation, The National Geographic Society, The National Institute of Health and The United Nations World Food Programme.

It has been discovered that Moringa is more nutritious when it has been dried rather than when raw. When we think of widespread malnutrition and starvation we think of India and Africa. There are, however, many other countries as well where these problems exist. The thing is, these countries all boast the ideal climate for growing the Moringa Olefeira tree.

We can only think that starvation and malnutrition is still in existence due to ignorance, and instead of throwing money at charities they should perhaps be planting Moringa Olefeira trees. It is a proven fact that if someone is starving and has no food, the tree will sustain them and keep them alive.

Everyone in the world should be made aware of the benefits of this amazing tree. The world obesity problem is said to have arisen by people not getting enough nutrients and too much fat in their diets, yet here is a tree which is overflowing with goodness that could be eaten the world over. When you consider what it does, and the fact it can actually save lives, then it is right that the Moringa is known as the miracle tree.
