Moringa is gotten from the Moringa oleifera, also known as drumstick tree, the miracle tree, the ben oil tree, or the horseradish tree. For centuries, moringa has been used for its health and medical benefits. It is very rich in healthy antioxidants and bioactive plant compounds. It’s more nutritious than kale and provides powerful anti-inflammatory benefits similar or better than turmeric.
It’s also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. A cup of fresh, chopped leaves (21 grams) contains: 2 grams of protein, 19% of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of Vitamin B6, 12% of the Vitamin C RDA, 11% of Iron RDA, 11% of Riboflavin (B2) RDA, 9% of Vitamin A RDA, and 8% of Magnesium RDA.
Its health benefit is varied. Moringa helps with lowering blood pressure, reducing inflammation, lowering cholesterol, protecting the body against arsenic toxicity, among others. It can be used to treat asthma, constipation, diarrhea, stomach pain and stomach issues, athletes’ foot, dandruff, gum disease, and other types of infection.
