As you may already know, 2 years ago I survived the unthinkable. Well at least to my family and I- it was. Shortly after my brain surgery I was introduced to this unbelievable healing plant / seed called 'Moringa' I barely know where to start right now. Only days after eating the seeds, I began to feel different. In a good way. I couldn't pin point exactly what I was feeling, but it felt good. After much research, I knew I had hit the jack pot with this plant / seed / powder / oil.
What is Moringa?
Moringa oleifera is a slender, medium-size tree with drooping branches and pretty, lacy leaf fronds, native to the southern foothills of the Himalayas in northwestern India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
In addition to being a valuable source of food, moringa is a medicinal plant, which in India’s age-old Ayuvedic tradition can prevent some 300 diseases. A significant amount of scientific research has been conducted in many countries over the past 20 years on the nutritional and medicinal benefits of moringa, including America at a number of prestigious institutions such as the John Hopkins School of Medicine. The research confirms the leaves to be a powerhouse of nutrition, containing, ounce for ounce, seven times more vitamin C than oranges, four times more beta-carotene than carrots (precursor to vitamin A), three times more potassium than bananas, and four times more calcium and two times more protein than fresh milk. The leaves also contain more iron than spinach and are high in magnesium and fiber.
It is extremely rich in antioxidants that reduce damage to the body from environmental stress and help maintain heart heath. It strengthens the immune system; regulates blood pressure to prevent high blood pressure and blood sugar levels to prevent diabetes; detoxifies and protect the liver and kidneys from damage from toxins; and maintains reproductive health. It has also been used to prevent and treat tumors and different kinds of cancers, asthma, allergies, gout, bleeding gums, constipation and a host of other health problems, including inflammation (e.g. rheumatism, arthritis, joint pain), skin diseases, and disorders of the circulatory, endocrine, digestive and nervous systems.
