Moringa Oleifera, native of the pristine Himalayas, is popular in Asia and Africa for its benefits: Moringa Oleifera is known to be beneficial for diabetes relief, healthy skin, anti-aging and overall well-being. After being featured on Dr. Oz Show and Discovery Channel, this wisdom is now coming to the West.

Quoting Dr. Oz: “The leaves of the Moringa Oleifera tree […] are extremely nutrient-dense. They contain three times more iron than spinach and are loaded with tons of other vitamins including vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, and potassium, as well as powerful antioxidants”. Moringa Oleifera is already used by millions of people, as a nutritious supplement, to purify water, to cook tasty meals, as a healthy and energizing alternative to coffee, etc.

Moringa Oleifera has several benefits. This is just an overview of what science and native wisdom discovered about the benefits of the different part of Moringa Oleifera.

Moringa Oleifera flowers are used for:

– improving the quality and flow of mothers’ milk when breast feeding

– being a powerful cold remedy, as a tea (flowers are boiled in water)

– solving urinary problems, because flower juice encourages urination

Moringa Oleifera seeds are used:

– against skin-infecting bacteria, because they contain pterygospermin (antibiotic and fungicide)

– to treat arthritis, rheumatism, cramp. The seeds are roasted, pounded, mixed with coconut oil and applied to the problem area. Or seed oil is used

Moringa Oleifera pods are used as:

– de-wormer, and as a treatment for liver and spleen problems. They are eaten raw

– a treatment for diarrhea, thanks to their high protein and fiber content

Moringa Oleifera seed-cake, left after Moringa Oleifera oil has been extracted from the pods, are used to purify water.
