In parts of the planet Moringa is called the tree of life. There is justification for this, it saves lives!
Moringa leaves contain all the essential amino acids, and a wealth of essential nutrients. The Moringa tree grows in semi-arid, topical, and subtropical areas. It grows best in dry sandy soil, and will thrive even in poor soil conditions.
This fast growing tree can resist drought and is widely grown in Africa, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Central and South America, and Sri Lanka. In actual fact, it can be a good revenue stream for many families around the world.
Moringa trees are used for food and as an all-natural remedy for many medical ailments – including cancer. Virtually every part of the tree has beneficial properties. Moringa has been used as forage for livestock, killing parasites and to aid against endemic diseases in developing countries.
The health benefits of the Moringa plant come from its ability to provide nutrients to every cell, while at the same time removing toxins and waste. Maybe they ought to be teaching this to every medical student.
A solution for dirty water
The American Chemical Society’s (ACS) award winning “Global Challenges/Chemistry Solutions” podcast series describes how the Moringa seeds can be used to produce clean drinking water.
This new water-treatment requires the tree seeds and sand to supply pure water inexpensively. This is particularly required in the developing world where 1 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. The study, which appears in the ACS’ journal Langmuir, explains how a protein in Moringa seeds helps to purify the water.
Research have shown that the leaves of the tree are one of the most nutritious plant foods. Moringa leaves contain: seven times the vitamin C of oranges, four times the calcium in milk, four times the vitamin A in carrots, two times the protein of milk, and three times the potassium in bananas. Moreover, Moringa has zinc, chlorophyll and three times more iron than spinach.
On a practical level, Moringa has been useful in treating anemia in Africa due to its life sustaining properties – especially in poverty stricken, poor areas which lack food abundance.
The body’s immune system is stimulated by the consumption of Moringa leaves. Given it energizes the body’s defence mechanism it is prescribed for AIDS patients in Africa. The leaves are known for their anti-bacterial properties, which help with opportunistic infections that sometimes appear in immune suppressed patients.
It’s simply amazing how the amino acids found in plants can assist build energy in your muscles, strengthen the immune system and improve sugar metabolism. Don’t ignore the importance of antioxidants which help protect the body from radiation and neutralize toxins.
