The magical Moringa tree, has 4 times the vitamin A of carrots, 2 times the protein of milk (and 4 times the calcium), 7 times the vitamin C of oranges, and 3 times the potassium of bananas. Moringa also has 25 times the iron of spinach, and high in Omega 3’s.
“It is called a miracle tree because every part of the tree has benefits,” says Balbir Mathur, president of Trees for Life International, a US-based non-profit organisation that provides developmental aid through planting fruit trees, moringas among them. “The roots, leaves, bark, parts of the fruits and seeds – everything. The list is endless.” (Mathur, B)
Without a doubt, diet is the primary way in which health can be improved. The World Health Organization reports that 70 to 80 percent of people living in developed nations(like the U.S.) die from dietary or lifestyle caused diseases. Diabetes, cancers, heart disease, and atherosclerosis are indeed dietary diseases. Moringa can help which is why the sacred Ayurvedic text records 300 applications for this miracle plant to be used for healing of chronic aliments, diseases and overall nutrient deficiencies.
Another major cause of dietary disease is malnutrition. Understand that malnutrition is not only having to deal with starving third world children we see on the television. Well-fed American people and individuals throughout the world can be malnourished; for example many people eat all day long but lack the essential nutrients necessary for optimal health.
Our bodies require some 90 different nutrients in order to produce and maintain optimal health. These nutrients are pure water, fatty acids (dietary fats) amino acids (from protein in nuts, vegetables, fruits, grains), vitamins, minerals, and carbohydrates. If these types of natural foods are not replenished every day, new cells in our bodies cannot be made to protect ourselves from disease.
This is where the Magical power of Moringa steps in to rescue the body from malnutrition and overall degenerative health. Moringa contains over 90 essential vitamins and nutrients and over 46 types of antioxidants which is a great protein source and good for alkalizing the body, curbing appetite, diabetes, brain health, breast milk production, energy, skin, circulatory system and a gamut of other benefits.
