- The Miracles of Moringa

Among the leafy vegetables, one stands out as particularly good, the horseradish (Moringa) tree. The leaves are outstanding as a source of vitamin A, and when raw, vitamin C. They are a good source of B vitamins and among the best plant sources of minerals. The calcium content is very high for a plant. Phosphorous is low, as it should be. The content of iron is very good (it is reportedly prescribed for anemia in the Philippines ). They are an excellent source of protein and a very low source of fat and carbohydrates. Thus, the leaves are on of the best plant foods that can be found. -

Dr. Frank L. Martin, in Survival and Subsistence in the Tropics

Moringa leaves could practically wipe out malnutrition on our planet! Experts agree that the long-term solution to malnutrition is the use of foods rich in the essential nutrients often lacking in people's diets. Modern scientific research is proving that Moringa leaves are one of the richest sources of such nutrients. Even small amounts of the leaves could protect thousands of people from suffering and death.

Moringa also has a well-documented detoxifying effect. Universities around the world have studied Moringa's ability to purify water--attaching itself to harmful material and bacteria, and allowing them to be expelled as waste. The evidence points to this same process going on inside your body. The result is long-lasting energy without hyperactivity...a nerve system at rest...a blood system not under pressure...a gland and hormone system in balance.
