1. In the majority of cultures, the Moringa Oliefera is called the Miracle Tree or The Tree of Life and the majority of it is edible and can be consumed by all ages. We’re off to a good start.
2. Moringa contains more that 90 nutrients, 46 antioxidants, and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds. It also has 18 amino acids, including the 8 essentials that our bodies need to survive but cannot manufacture ourselves (and must be supplied through diet). All this is 100% naturally occurring in the Moringa, whereas most multivitamins and calcium supplements in the marketplace are manufactured using synthetic ingredients that the human body absorbs very minimal nutrients from.
3. The flowers can be cooked down and are said to taste of mushrooms. The flower juice is wonderful for treating urinary problems and as an all-natural laxative. Tea made from the flowers has also been used as a common cold remedy.
4. The seeds can be eaten like peas or roasted like nuts but are often ground into powder and used in treatment of scurvy skin diseases, insect bites, arthritis, rheumatism, gout, cramps, STDs, and boils due to their antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties. They have been used as a relaxant for epilepsy. And after oil has been extracted, the seed cake can be used as fertilizer or a flocculent to purify water.
5. The oil obtained from the seeds can resist rancidity and is used to treat bladder and prostate problems, in addition to stomach disorders. It can relieve headaches when rubbed on the temples and is also used in perfumes, skin care, and hair oil. It is also being studied for its potential as a biofuel.
6. The leaves are commonly known as the most nutritious portion of the Moringa and have no proven unwanted effects to this date. Gram for gram, these leaves have 7 times the Vitamin C of an orange, 4 times the Vitamin A of carrots and calcium of milk, 3 times the potassium of bananas, the Vitamin E of spinach, and the iron of almonds, and 2 times the protein of yogurt. Regularly consuming Moringa leaves has been associated with a boosted immune system, lower blood pressure, improved digestion and mood, and fat loss due to its high fiber and low fat and calorie levels. They’re also regularly used to treat fevers, bronchitis, anemia, and eye and ear infections.
7. The roots and bark are used to relieve lower back or kidney pain, for cardiac and circulatory problems, and as a condiment (just like horseradish), tonic, or tea for inflammation and digestion. (the roots and bark have all of the properties above but are more concentrated and should have more care taken when used as a medicine because the alkaloid spirachin (a nerve-paralyzer) has been discovered in the roots.
8. Moringa has been used as a sexual virility drug to manage male impotence in men and increase sex drive (as an aphrodisiac) in women. It has also been known to prevent pregnancy; But in the case of having a baby, it will increase and nourish breast milk production.
9. In Jamaica, the sap is used for a blue dye and in Haiti the trees are grown as windbreaks and to help reduce soil erosion because it is fast growing (flowering begins within the first 6 months of planting) and drought resistant. It is also in full-leaf at the end of the dry season when most other foods are usually scarce.
10. Moringa has been advocated as a natural nutrition for the tropics and is being used to combat malnutrition (because of its high protein and fibre content) by major NGOs such as Trees for Life International, Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization, and Volunteer Partnerships for West Africa.
