Moringa (Moringa oleifera) - Nutritional "Superfood"

Summarized Description: Moringa oleifera, also known as "drumstick tree" or "horseradish tree," is a veritable "superfood," loaded with nutrients -- offering tremendous benefits above and beyond its traditional applications in herbal medicine. Native to the Himalayas in northwestern India, Moringa now has broad geographic distribution, is drought-resistant, fast-growing, vigorous, for which there are uses for all its parts: leaves, pods, seeds, bark, and root.


Geographic Distribution: Moringa has widespread geographic distribution throughout Central and South America, Africa, and Southern Asia.


Nutritional Profile: Moringa has the broadest nutritional profile of any plant we have ever worked with. According to author Sanford Holst ("Moringa: Nature's Medicine Cabinet," p.12), it has been found to contain, by weight, seven times more Vitamin C than oranges, four times the Vitamin A of carrots, three times the iron of spinach, four times as much calcium as milk, and three times the potassium of bananas. Though the term has been overused, Moringa really is a veritable "superfood." You will find variances on these figures, based on the studies relied on, but -- regardless -- the nutritional figures are impressive :
