Known as "The tree of life" Properties and benefits of moringa

Moringa oleifera, also known as the tree of life. Originally from India where it was used for medicinal purposes since ancient times. A tree with great nutritional potential. Packed with vitamins and minerals.

Most of its parts, leaves, bark, pods, and roots were used as food and provide us with protein, calcium, beta-carotene, vitamin C, potassium, little fat, and no bad cholesterol. Moringa leaves rich in vitamin C are used in stews or salads, and have a spicy flavor. Same as radish.

Moringa is considered a natural antibiotic. With anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, cardiovascular, and hepatoprotective properties. It is rich in phytonutrients that are effective in helping to build a strong immune system. It helps in the improvement of the cellular immune response, the number of leukocytes, and antibodies.

Let’s look at the nutritional value for every 100 grams of fresh leaves.

  • Proteins 6.7 g.
  • Carbohydrates 13.4 g.
