Moringa Oleifera the Super Food!

Moringa Oleifera

With all the talk about super foods, it could be easy to be mislead as to what qualifies. Since it's a fairly new term, a lot of people haven't yet grasped what defines super food. One reliable definition is that the food have a high concentration of antioxidants and vitamins. Furthermore, super foods typically provide a health benefit such as reducing cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, etc. Broccoli, spinach, soy, green tea and blueberries have typically been described as super foods. One lesser known super food in America is Moringa Oleifera.

Moringa Oliferia helps people take care of themselves. Available in capsule, seed, powder, oil and loose leaf form; this nature inspired product comes from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. There you will find these drought-resistant trees that grow rather rapidly. The tree is called the Moringa or the drumstick tree. The young seed pods and leaves are eaten as vegetables in India and elsewhere. The leaves in particular have been said to have more health benefits than any other plant yet known to mankind. Other applications include herbal medicine, hand-washing and water purifying.


According to some, this tree is the earthly “tree of life.” Some of the health benefits it provides includes system detoxification; serving as an anti-inflammatory, diuretic and skin antiseptic; combating anemia, diabetes, dysentery and many others. One major claim of the moringa tree is that it can be used as a nutritional food source in third world countries where many are suffering from malnutrition.

The way this natural product allays so many medical conditions, and can even be a food source; it is small wonder that it is referred to as a "tree of life".
