The Moringa Tree: A Nutritional and Medicinal Goliath

Standard

Discovered in the southern foothills of the Himalayas in northwestern India, the Moringa tree (Moringa Oleifera) is taking Western civilization by storm due to its massive nutritional benefits. In reality, Moringa is viewed by many health professionals to be the most nutritious tree crop in the world.

Moringa contains 36 anti-inflammatory compounds, 46 types of antioxidants, and more than 90 vitamins, proteins, amino acids, iron and calcium. That’s why health and fitness experts in the U.S. and Europe are touting Moringa Oleifera as a legitimate “superfood” and the locals in India even refer to it as “The Miracle Tree.”

For hundreds of years, civilizations in the Far East have used Moringa to aid healthy living. Considered a raw food, each portion of the tree – the leaves, seeds, bark, flowers, fruit, and roots – is edible and easily digestible . . . as well as naturally vegan, caffeine-free, and gluten-free.

The leaves provide the highest nutritional benefit. They contain huge amounts of vitamin B6, vitamin C, provitamin A as beta-carotene, magnesium, and protein, among other nutrients.

Moringa nutritional benefits exceed that of any other edible plant food. For instance, in gram for gram comparisons to common fruits and vegetables, Moringa leaves contain:

7 times the vitamin C in oranges
4 times the calcium in milk and twice the protein
4 times the vitamin A in carrots
3 times the iron present in almonds
And 3 times the potassium in bananas

And there are no known negative effects from eating Moringa, according to the experts, even when consumed daily. It also is completely safe and natural for children and pregnant women.

Since its discovery, many countries now cultivate Moringa Oleifera for its exceptional nutritional benefits. In fact, the World Health Organization and other charitable organizations have used Moringa Oleifera for decades to remedy malnutrition in Third World countries.

Noel Vietmeyer of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in Washington says that while few individuals today have never heard of this tree crop, “Moringa could soon become one of the world’s most valuable plants, at least in humanitarian terms.”

Moringa Health Advantages

But nutrition is only one half of the Moringa benefits story. It’s also prized for its many medicinal benefits.

Because its leaves, bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and roots are chock full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and other vital nutritional elements, Moringa has been used for hundreds of years in both folk and traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Scientific research shows Moringa leaves can treat roughly 300 health conditions, including such conditions as anemia, arthritis, asthma, cancer, constipation, diabetes, epilepsy, heart conditions, high cholesterol, hypertension, kidney stones, thyroid disorders, and infections.

Although the Moringa plant’s treasure chest of powerful and disease-preventing substances, plus essential amino acids, are not pharmaceutical medicine per se, there is scientific evidence they can prevent those health conditions and diseases brought on by malnutrition or the absence of certain nutrients in the daily diet. In fact, the U.S. National Institute of Health has supported the nutritional and health benefits of Moringa through extensive research.
