Five interesting facts about Moringa
Every part is edible:
The leaves can be eaten like spinach, the seed pods are similar to green beans and the roots are like horseradish.
It purifies water:
The seeds of the Moringa tree have some amazing properties. When crushed they become a natural binder and can be used in water to catch fine substances such as bacteria, salt and other impurities as they will clump together and can be more easily removed.
It is extremely nutritious:
The plant is full of essential nutrients, including vitamins A, B, C, D, E as well as minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and selenium.
It will give you an energy boost:
One serving of Moringa provides three times the amount of iron of spinach. Iron is an essential element of hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs and carries it throughout your body. A lack of iron is called iron deficiency anemia and causes you to have low energy and feel exhausted.
It has healing powers:
There have been numerous studies around the positive health effects of eating Moringa tree, including that it: protects the liver, treats stomach disorders, is an antibacterial agent, has cancer fighting properties, treats neurodegenerative diseases, improves bone health, boosts immunity, has immunosuppressive properties, protects the cardiovascular system, treats diabetes, treats asthma, prevents stone formation, protects against kidney problems, heals wounds, treats edema, reduces hypertension, improves eye health, treats anemia and sickle cell disease.
