What on Earth is Moringa?
Moringa is a kind of tree of which there are over 13 documented species. The most common of which is Moringa Oleifera. The tree grows in equatorial regions across the world (originally from Tamil Nadu). If you include every part of the tree (leaves, seed, oil etc.) it contains over 90 nutrients.
Given its nutrient density, it’s no wonder the Moringa Tree has long been employed in Ayurvedic medicine and by communities where the Moringa Tree grows naturally for over 300 common ailments and diseases. Many communities use Moringa now to aid in fighting malnutrition, increase lactation and to purify water.
In recent times, Moringa has become commoditized with farms being established almost anywhere it grows from Central America to Africa to India. For the most part, the leaves are harvested and sold in capsules, teas or in a powder form.
So… Is it a Wonder Tree?
The Moringa Oleifera Tree in particular, is often known as “The Miracle Tree.” This is due to its nutrient rich properties but really it got this name from a publication issued by the National Institute of Medicine in 2008 naming Moringa the “Plant of the Year” and the branding of the tree thanks to emerging products on the market. The article included the following in its description Moringa could:
“…save millions of lives”
“purify polluted water working as a coagulant and as an anti-microbial”
provide “an excellent source of protein and iron”
“be consumed as a tea and as a nutritious substitute for milk”
It is rich in 90+ verifiable, vitamins, minerals, proteins, antioxidants, and omega oils including (but not limited to):
Omega 3, 6, 9
All essential amino acids
Vitamin A, B (1, 2, 3, 5, 6 and 12), C, D, E, K, Folate (Folic Acid)
The Science of Moringa: What are the benefits?
It is no wonder that scientists, health and wellness industry, pharmaceutical companies and the public are taking notice of Moringa because of the potential it could provide in improving general health and nutrition for a large number of people. After all, everyone could benefit from better nutrition right?
Over the past 10 years in particular there have been a tremendous number of scientific studies conducted that confirm and document the nutritional properties of the Moringa tree. It is important to keep in mind that there are far fewer studies demonstrating direct correlation of Moringa in mitigating, curing or managing disease or in improving health outcomes. Ongoing research is exploring further the opportunity Moringa could provide to better health outcomes like blood pressure control, lipids/cholesterol, weight, inflammatory disease, skin conditions and even the potential effect it could have on helping to prevent disease altogether.
