Moringa: The New Superfood

Moringa leaves are being touted as the new superfood – and they offer significant health benefits!

The Moringa oleifera tree grows in tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia and South America. The leaves, roots, seed, bark, fruit, flowers and immature pods offer many nutritional and medicinal benefits. Moringa is an excellent source of beta carotene, protein, vitamins A and C, calcium and potassium, as well as several antioxidants.

Moringa’s Multitude of Nutritional and Medicinal Properties

Moringa has been shown to stimulate cardiac and circulatory activity and to offer anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, anti-spasmodic, diuretic and antioxidant properties. Moringa has also been shown to lower blood sugar and aid in treating diabetes. Studies show moringa aids in protecting tissues in the liver, kidneys, heart and lungs from oxidative stress.
