Have you ever heard of moringa before? In my quest for knowledge about plants and their benefits, this one peaked my interest and now I’m obsessed!

In 2008 the National Institute of Health called moringa (moringa oleifera) the “plant of the year,” acknowledging that “perhaps like no other single species, this plant has the potential to help reverse multiple major environmental problems and provide for many unmet human needs.”

According to Dr Axe, benefits of moringa include helping treat a wide variety of conditions, such as: inflammation-related diseases, diabetes, low energy and fatigue, joint pain, allergies, asthma, constipation, chronic headaches, heart problems, including high blood pressure, kidney stones, fluid retention, thyroid disorders, low sex drive and bacterial, fungal, viral and parasitic infections.

Studies have revealed that moringa powder is loaded with phytochemicals, protein, calcium, beta-carotene, vitamin C, Vitamin A and potassium. 

Is your interest peaked now? Like with all things, make sure to consult your physician before incorporating anything new.

Let’s talk about how to use moringa, aka the Miracle Tree!
