Morninga! The Miracle Tree

The Moringa Tree is an amazing health resource that here in America most of us have never even heard of. It contains 7 times the Vitamin C of oranges, 4 times the Vitamin A of carrots, 4 times the calcium of milk, 3 times the potassium of bananas and two times the protein of yogurt.

The leaves, bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and root can all be used medicinally.

Oil from moringa seeds can be used in foods, perfume, and hair care products, and as a machine lubricant. The seed cake remaining after oil extraction can even be used as a fertilizer and also to purify well water and to remove salt from seawater.

Moringa is an important food source in many parts of the world because it can be grown cheaply and easily, and the leaves retain lots of vitamins and minerals when dried, moringa is used in India and Africa in feeding programs to fight malnutrition.
