Where to buy Organic Moringa ? Healing Moringa Tree @
What has 17x the calcium of milk, 4x the protein of eggs, 10x the Vitamin A of carrots, 15x the potassium of bananas, 7x the Vitamin C of oranges and 15x the iron of spinach? I'll give you a guess...actually, best I just tell you 'else we may be here all year ;-)
What is it?
Moringa oleifera, also called the "Miracle tree", is a tree that grows in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India AND (more significantly for us Aussies) in Northern Queensland. It is a multi purpose plant, whereby all parts of the Moringa plant - the gum, fruit, leaves, bark, root, seed and seed oil can be utilized.
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the Moringa is that it has such incredible health benefits over a wide-range of health issues. Throughout history Moringa has been used to treat diseases which range from cardiovascular and gastrointestinal to inflammation - Journal of Phytotherapy Research 2007.
Why is it good for you?
From what I gather, the possibilities are almost endless. However, here are the most commonly reported benefits:
1. Increased and longer lasting physical energy
2. Mental and emotional balance
3. Faster recovery post workout
4. Nutrient dense mothers milk - in cultures across Africa, Moringa is referred to as 'Mother's Best Friend' in that the iron, potassium, Vitamins A, B, C and E along with other important nutrients are readily absorbed from the Moringa and transferred from the mother's milk to the growing newborn.
5. Stabilizes blood sugar levels
In addition, benefits of Moringa also include increased flexibility, improved sensory perception, better sleep cycles, decreased depression and anxiety and improved memory. It has been used to assist those with diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and even cancer. Additionally, Moringa is an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and works effectively on wounds or fungal skin complaints.
How do we eat it?
Moringa is most readily available in powder form. The reason why dried leaf powder is preferred over fresh leaves is that the nutrition is preserved (and concentrated), a single serve can contain up to ten times more specific nutrients in comparison to fresh moringa leaves. This soft fluffy powder has no side effects and is easy to store. Moringa has a nutty earthy taste which is quite strong and being water soluble can be added to soups, stews or smoothies. Peanut and lemon seem to work well with the flavour profile of Moringa.
If you can get your hands on fresh Moringa leaves, pods or seeds, they can be eaten in all sorts of ways; in salads, rice or quinoa dishes, steamed or even fried in a little coconut oil. Half a cup of cooked leaves will meet your day's needs for Vitamin A & C.
Do note that excess heat destroys some of the vitamins and all of the enzymes of Moringa leaves or Moringa Powder. Be sure not to cook the fresh Moringa leaves or powder for too long.
To be more specific about the Oleifera and the Stenopetala species which hold similar nutritional traits and are the two known edible Moringa Trees. Studies have proven, "that the leaves from either tree will help detox the liver". We're speaking of the leaves alone people; containing 18 amino acids, 9 of which are essential. A tree baring much fruit; from the high counts of protein, iron, calcium, potassium, to the vitamin A level reaching beyond that than a dozen of carrots. To be more descriptive, when the leaves are dried into powder form the quality triples in value. Fact has it, this tree is also equipped with anti-aging agents (antioxidants) which helps to deter over 300 diseases.
SAY NO TO GMO, It's KILLING THE BEES
Make sure you check your plant tags.This is at Home Depot a Yarrow herb plant that is GMO. A lot of plants are GMO there especially the flowers make sure they don't have this tag in the pots..GMO KILLS BEES so when they go to pollinate the flowers they get sick and die..
The word NEONICOTINOIDS is GMO it is very small at the bottom of the tag... They hope you wont see it..
*Millions of bees die because of Neonicotinoid http://seattleorganicrestaurants.com/vegan-whole-food/gmo-corn-treated-with-neonicotinoids-pesticides-manufactured-by-Bayer-Syngenta-kill-honeybees.php
This is what we call the Moringa Testing Ground; a pre-mixed organic mountain of soil containing over 500 moringa oleifera seeds. At five inches in height, our seedlings here proved to be drought tolerant after going a total of 12 hours without any water. Past challenges with other Moringa Seed vendors were unfortunate, because there seeds took weeks to germinate and the seedlings acted as if they were stunted per DNA, allowing the Moringa to grow an inch a month, or to just totally die off for no apparent reason. Yes we've been bumbed-out too, with high expectations, only to gain more respect for a plant species that shouldn't be hindered from its proper way of production. With this, take a good look at this photo, at the end of August, 2015, the Moringa here should reach to about five to six feet in height. Will keep ya updated...
Yes! there is a difference in the size of the leaves when it comes to the Moringa Oleifera. From personal experience, anticipating on my first ground planted Moringa to show its true colors once it had reached maturity. I've come to learn, that this Moringa tree first and foremost grew quite slowly verses the newly purchased seeds we had obtained and were also growing. Well attempting to keep hopes up high towards our planted Moringa, our seedling stock began to flourish even faster, demanding that i took notice of the nickle-size leaves weighing their branches down. The planted Moringa produced leaves the size of peas in a cluster form and for one entire year this tree only grew to about 2 feet. Now on the other hand our Large leave seedlings have reached up to 8 feet in a year and ever so proudly brandishing quarter size leaves. You go figure....
Before Moringa seed pods become available remember, seed pods will only start forming if the bees pollinate them. So if you're growing in a greenhouse or inside an enclosed structure don't forget to leave a door open from time to time. You might also want to add some other plants bees are drawn to; like Rosemary or Lavender to increase chances of pollination.

The uses of Moringa oleifera?
All of the parts of the tree can be used in a variety of ways. Moringa is full of nutrients and vitamins and is good in your food as well as in the food of your animals. Moringa helps to clean dirty water and is a useful source of medicines.
Eating is not jut a pleasure, it's also a necessity. Food gives us energy after it's digested or broken down into small molecules of nutrients. The digestive system is made of several connecting parts: the mouth, esophagus, stomach, and intestines. Two adjunct organs, the liver and the pancreas, produce additional digestive juices that enter the small intestine via tiny ducts. When the digestive system runs smoothly, things are good. But when digestion goes awry, life can be most unpleasant. Digestive complaints are caused by lots of issues: improper storage and handling, poor nutrition, infectious diseases, and stress. The herbalists of antiquity and today have found stomach-soothing plants whose actions are gentle, effective, and documented by scientific research. Medicinal plants have a great deal to offer when it comes to digestive troubles. Not only can many of these cures be treated as foods or flavorings to spice up dishes, but they can also help the body digest them. (Ref: Fueling Up-Nature's Best Remedies-National Geographic)
