We sell the only Bio-Dynamic/Organic Moringas on the coast.
Still largely unknown in Australia, Moringa packs a serious nutritional punch, and has the potential of being a real heavyweight player in promoting personal health!
Moringa oleifera leaves are packed full of nutrition!
Gram for Gram Fresh Moringa Leaves Contain:
4x more calcium than milk
3x more vitamin C than oranges
2.5x more protein than yogurt,
2x more iron than spinach, the
same amount of potassium as bananas, and the
same amount of vitamin A of carrots!
If that isn’t enough moringa leaves also contain 18 amino acids including all 9 essential amino acids required by the human body.
The slender and inconspicuous Moringa tree, native to northwestern India, is cultivated and used through much of the world’s tropical belt and even some sub-tropical regions. It is one of the most nutrient-dense foods available. In fact here is whatThe Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) stated about Moringa:
“Leaves are rich in protein, vitamins A, B and C, and minerals – Moringa products have antibiotic, antitrypanosomal, hypotensive, antispasmodic, antiulcer, anti-inflammatory, hypocholesterolemic, and hypoglycemic properties.”
Speaking of the high levels of antioxidants found in moringa the journal Plant Foods for Human Nutrition published:
“…Moringa oleifera both mature and tender leaves have potent antioxidant activity against free radicals, prevent oxidative damage to major biomolecules and afford significant protection against oxidative damage.”
If you have access to fresh leaves through a local market, you are fortunate as Moringa is arguably the most nutritious plant in the world! Fresh leaves are the healthiest way to capitalize on Moringa’s nutritional strength. If you do not have access to fresh leaves, consider growing your own tree
