In the realm of nutrition and natural health, there are some foods that come out of nowhere and then BAM – one day it’s all you hear about. Among those foods is Moringa, often referred to as the Miracle Tree. But unlike some of the exaggerated trend-foods of years past, there really are some benefits worth noting with regards to this one. Without further ado, here are a few of the many unknown Moringa benefits.
Praised for its medicinal value and ability to purify the body while boosting vigor, Moringa oleifera, is native to the Himalayas of India. Currently, it’s growth is most prevalent in Africa, Central and South America, and Asia. But it’s effects are being felt around the world.
Due to it’s powerful nutritional profile, consisting of nine essential amino acids, protein, and a number of vitamins and minerals, the Moringa tree is becoming known as the next “superfood”. Nearly all of the tree is edible; the bark, flowers, and roots all offer some sort of use or benefit to humans or animals.
The leaves of the Moringa tree contain:
More vitamin C than an orange. Vitamin C enhances the body’s immune system, prevents free radical damage, is vital for unborn baby development, and protects the body overall.
More vitamin B3 than peanuts. Vitamin B3 helps in reducing atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), helps lower the risk of numerous conditions like Alzheimer’s, and cataracts.
More vitamin A than a carrot. Vitamin A promotes healthy eyesight, boosts the immune system, and harnesses anti-infection properties.
As much as 25 times more iron than in spinach. Iron promotes brain function, carries oxygen throughout the body, and is necessary for those experiencing iron deficiency anemia.
More than 4 times the fiber of oats. Fiber is essential for proper digestion.
Even the seeds contain up to 40% of an oil known as Ben Oil, considered to be comparable to olive oil in antioxidants and nutritional value, but this sweet, clear oil could realistically last forever-it never turns rancid.
Cultivated in poor nations as a primary source of nutrition, the food is being touted as an solution to hunger and malnutrition in addition to being fed to cattle.
Again, one of the best aspects of this tree is how easy it is to grow. If you are fortunate enough to stay in the southern or western regions of the United States, you may even be able to grow it yourself. It doesn’t like the cold, so if you are unsure, plant it in a large pot and bring it indoors over the winter to shield it from freezing.
