Leaves of the Miracle tree Moringa contain almost everything the human body needs. They are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and protein. A few teaspoon full of the leaf powder added to the daily diet of children can help in fighting malnutrition in many developing countries.
But even in the industrialized world Moringa leaf powder is increasingly used as an valuable food additive for health-conscious people. Nearly every part of the tree can be used: as food (leaves and pods), as ingredient for cosmetics (Moringa seed oil), as water purifier (seeds) and medicine (leaves & roots).
