Moringa

Traditional Ayurveda Medicine

What is Moringa?

The moringa tree is referred as ‘The tree of life’ across India for its ability to enhance and repair the human body.

Moringa has been used for centuries as a natural remedy and is widely respected for its abundance of medicinal capabilities.

Every part of the tree from the roots to the fruits can be used for medicinal benefit. The leaves of the moringa tree are becoming increasingly popular in the Western world for their exceptional levels of vitamin C.

Referred to as a ‘super leaf’,  Moringa leaf is high in: 

  • Iron

  • Antioxidants

  • Fibres

  • Vitaman A

  • Vitamin K

The leaves of the Moringa tree also contain all 9 essential amino acids and act as a powerful source of natural protein.

What makes Moringa so special?

  • 1.  It is one of nature’s best resources for the human body

    Moringa contains natural resources that can help people in bountiful ways. Moringa is one of Ayurveda’s fondest natural resources to boost the immune system and increase nutrition. 

  • 2.  7 x the amount of Vitamin C than an orange

    Gram for gram, Moringa is widely recognised as having seven times the amount of Vitamin C than an orange, four times the amount of calcium as milk, and three times the amount of potassium as a banana. It islo has antioxidant levels that are around six times higher than that of goji berries.

  • 3.  It can be added to food

    Moringa can be added to meals to easily boost your nutritional value. It’s quick, hardly noticeable, and is a great way to increase the family’s nutrition. Check out our Moringa recipes at the bottom of the page for inspiration. 

  • 4. It's a powerful source of Protein

    Commonly used for their level of protein, animal sources such as meat, fish, and eggs are referred to as complete proteins as they contain all nine amino acids. Unlike most plants, Moringa also contains all nine amino acids providing an alternative to animal-based sources. 

  • 5. It promotes immunity and balance

    Ayurveda teaches us that in order to fight infections and enjoy a harmonious life, the internal body must be working in balance. Moringa helps to fuel multiple parts of the body simultaneously to help it heal itself and prepare itself for external and internal challenges.
