Miraculously Amazing Leaf!

Miraculous moringa tree leaves are a remarkable discovery, which can make remarkable improvement in your health and quality of life. Moringa is nature's true medicine cabinet. And not only that, moringa could be a nutrition dream come true in nations devastated by lethal diseases, widespread poverty and resulting malnutrition. Some researchers namely document moringa's tree value as solution to malnutrition, especially among infants, children and mothers.

Simply a Natural Miracle

Moringa tree or also known as “Drumstick,” is an exceptionally nutritious tree with a variety of potential uses. The tree is slender with drooping branches, and grows up to 10 meters in height. The moringa tree grows very quickly- it comes into leaves at the end of the dry season, when other foods are the scarcest. Actually, the Moringa grows quickly in any tropical climate. Within six months of planting a seed or a piece of trunk, one can cut leaves from the tree to eat. The leaves can be cooked, which looks like cooked spinach, or dried, ground over a screen for several days, and ground into a fine powder that can be added to almost anything as a nutrient supplement.

Moringa tree grows in tropical and subtropical areas, widely in Africa, Central and South America, Sri Lanka, India, Mexico, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Moringa is considered to be one of the most useful trees, since almost every part of the Moringa tree has some beneficial property: the leaves, leaf powder, pods, seeds, flowers, roots and bark of the drought-resistant moringa are eadible or have some other healing property.

Also called “the miracle tree”, the moringa tree has many uses for people in Africa and also elsewhere it grows. Some parts of Moringa tree can be used for animal feed, domestic cleansers, perfume, dye, fertilizer, medicine, water clarification, rope fiber, and as an agent for tanning hides.

Moringa tree is rich in iron, potassium and multivitamins, especially vitamin A. Moringa tree contains four times the amounts of vitamin A in carrots and thus can prevent blindness.
The tree's leaves contain high amounts of vitamin C, which is seven times more than oranges. Moringa tree's leaves contain twice the amount of protein and four times more calcium than milk. Moringa is also rich in potassium- it contains triple the amount in bananas.

Statistics from a book called “The Tree of Life” published by Church World Services in 1999, claim the following:

“For a child aged 1-3, a 100g serving of fresh cooked leaves would provide all his/her daily requirements of calcium, about 75% of his iron and half his protein needs, as well as important amounts of potassium, B vitamins, copper and all the essential amino acids. As little as 20 grams of leaves would provide a child with all the vitamins A and C he needs.”

Without any doubt we can claim that we can only benefit from moringa tree leaves. They are organic, natural and powerful energy supplement. Moringa leaf has no proven bad effects and is absolutely safe and organic, and is suitable for people from any age group.

Benefits of Moringa Leaves

According to researchers, Moringa leaves could treat at least 300 diseases. Let's name just a benefits that Moringa leaves bring:

1. gives a feeling of wellness and promotes energy, yet this is not a sugar based energy
2. increases natural body defense and stimulates metabolism
3. stimulates the cell structure of the body
4. rich in vitamin A, provides nourishment to the eyes and brain
5. balances level of cholesterol
6. balances level of sugar
7. rich in anti-oxidants, beautifies the skin and lowers the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
8. improves functioning of kidney and liver
9. promotes healthy digestion
10. promotes body's immune system
11. promotes circulatory system and controles blood pressure
12. promotes anti-inflammatory features, heals arthritis pain
13. heals tumors and ulcers
14. balances hormone and gland system
15. detoxify body from poisons
16. helps relax and promotes good night sleep
17. purifies water

In some countries, for example in Senegal, people make sauce out of Moringa leaf powder; in India Moringa tree leaves are used in ayurvedic medicine.
From the popular myth is considered that the fruit of Moringa tree increases sexual libido in men; another myth claims that the tree hosts ghosts during the night. The truth is that is hosts insects, which makes it unattractive for people to grow it in their backyards.
Moringa has been used in households in countries it grows for centuries, but only recently has been tested commercially. Unfortunately, it is still not used widely as it should have been.

In conclusion, Moringa is remarkable discovery for Western world. Of course, people living in tropical parts know the benefits of the tree for thousands and thousands of years. Leaves are great spice in the kitchen-tasty, but most of all healthy. Tree is best known as an excellent energy and nutritional booster, rich in nutrients, vitamins and amino acids. It will replenish your body and provide you with the right energy you need, not sugar-energy, that makes you hyper for some period of time and then leaves you drained.
One might think this is just another product to sell. It is not just a product, it is a gift from nature. India's ancient tradition of ayurveda says the leaves of the Moringa tree prevent 300 diseases, and modern or if you prefer western science confirmed the basic idea. Unfortunately, even while science is introducing the benefits of the Moringa leaves, this vital information has not reached the people who need it most.
We say: just try it and see for your self.

It's All About Moringa Health!

It's All About
Moringa Health!

Researcher Seeks to Increase Moringa Awareness

by Dr. Monica Marcu

As a scientist and pharmacologist interested in nutrition and disease prevention, I believe that now, more than ever, more scientists should be directly involved in the education of the general public on issues related to environment, health and disease prevention.

On this note I am very enthusiastic about my work at various levels with a plant of extraordinary potential - Moringa oleifera. Moringa is a plant possessing an impressive nutrient profile and numerous therapeutic qualities. For instance, the plant contains hundreds of phytochemicals (plant-specific substances), nutritional compounds ranging from vitamins and minerals to omega fats and all essential amino acids. We also know it can clean and disinfect water (functioning even better than aluminum sulfate, a standard water flocculant), has antibacterial and antiviral properties, contains powerful antioxidant and anticancer substances and other important compounds such as cytokinins (Zeatin). It also can function as a natural growth stimulant for other plants. Moringa has uses outside of the human health and medicinal realms - it is a terrific high nutrient feed for animals, it is useful in agro-forestry, and its oil has the potential to be used as biodiesel fuel. in many ways, Moringa truly appears to be a "miracle" plant.

Moringa: Food and Medicine

We know that Moringa represents a superior option for battling the effects of malnutrition in impoverished areas. in fact, numerous organizations are actively working to further the agriculture and distribution of Moringa within regions suffering from extreme poverty and hunger.

In addition to its rich nutritional qualities, the plant appears to have a tremendous potential in the areas of medicinal use. Traditional cultures in various parts of the world have long used Moringa in their herbal medicine repertoire for ailments ranging from gout to various inflammations and fevers.

Now, modern research is supporting the traditional medicinal uses of this remarkable plant. Several dozen studies, most of them animal studies, give us a good idea of its potential. however, there is still an urgent need of further research - especially of human studies - to ascertain the therapeutic qualities of Moringa.

So far, scientific findings suggest exciting healing potentials for Moringa. It may:

*Relieve mineral and vitamin deficiencies.

*Support a healthy cardiovascular system. In fact, a recent study in animals investigating the positive cardiovascular attributes of Moringa produced impressive results. The study, which compared Moringa to a widely used class of cholesterol - and lipid-lowering drug called statins, found Moringa to be comparable to statins in suppressing the initiation and propagation of lipid peroxidation and suppression of atherosclerosis formation

*Promote normal blood-glucose levels.

*Neutralize free radicals and thereby reduce oxidative damage.

*Provide excellent support of the body's anti-inflammatory mechanisms. Inflammation is now linked to a wide array of modern degenerative diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes and cancer.

In addition to the above, the research also suggests Moringa is extremely safe, as no reports of toxicity have been issued.

So what does the future of Moringa hold? I believe we have only touched the tip of the iceberg - as future research and use of this noteworthy plant will reveal even more amazing qualities of Moringa. I am pleased to add my efforts to those of many people and groups worldwide who are striving to successfully use Moringa in the areas of malnutrition, poverty and various diseases. I also believe that if moringa is widely consumed as a regular part of a healthy diet, the health advantages could be enormous in every part of this world.
