Some "supplements" and superfoods are better eaten as fresh food - and moringa is one.
Simple! In this case, fresh is more nutritious than dried. Yes, it's true that both fresh Moringa and Moringa powder are incredibly nutritious. But there are problems when you buy Moringa powder as a supplement:
- you don't know how old it is
- you don't know where it's grown
- you don't know what artificial chemicals have been used to grow or preserve it.
When you grow your own, you're in control.
Moringa is a superfood known to be an aphrodisiac, and a hormone and mood balancer as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-viral.
In many African languages, this plant is called nebedaye or "never-die." It's a tough, drought-resistant tree with documented medicinal use that dates back to 2000 B.C. In fact, practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine have said that this tree can be used to prevent and treat over 300 diseases!
Considering it provides more than 30 natural anti-inflammatory agents and contains more than 40 different antioxidants, it's no wonder that it's referred to as the Miracle Plant.
If that's not enough, all parts of the plant can be used for medicinal purposes, including the root, seeds, flowers, bark, and leaves. And compared to naturally healthy foods that might already be in your kitchen or on your shopping list, Moringa leaves contain:
7 times the vitamin C found in oranges
4 times the calcium in milk
2 times the protein of yogurt
4 times the vitamin A in carrots
25 times the iron in spinach
3 times the potassium in bananas
More than 1,300 research papers detail the many benefits, uses, and known ailments it heals.
Leaves should ideally be cooked - add them to soups, stews, curries and pickles.
Having said that, personally, I use the leaves in salads, omelettes, and eat them raw from the tree.
The young foliage and flowers are a ready source of vitamins A and C as well as calcium, phosphorus; the leaves contain up to 38% protein.
The immature pods can be cooked and curried like okra.
Young seeds are used as a vegetable, mature seeds can be roasted and eaten like peanuts.
The pungent root is used as a substitute for horseradish, eaten as a vegetable or pickled.
An edible oil, 'ben oil', is expressed from the seeds, used in salads and for delicate lubrications.
We're very excited to offer you Moringa seeds, and all the benefits you can get from simply eating a few Moringa leaves each day.
(Note, we send seeds from the moringa trees on our organic farm or, in the event of too many orders, from carefully selected organic growers we know).
