It is rewarding watching my little moringa tree flourish. Soon I’ll be harvesting my own tree(s). I’m planning on planting at least 6 more. Living in a very warm zone is good in this case, because moringa thrives in warmer climes.
Because my tree isn’t big enough to harvest yet, for now I buy the powdered leaf for my morning smoothies. I fill capsules too, for the mornings I don’t have time for a smoothie, and will share how that works in another post.
It is important to get your vitamins and minerals from real food, not synthetic supplements, and with this plant you just won’t believe the benefits. It has all 9 of the essential amino acids our bodies need. Actually, it has 18 of the 20 existing amino acids, according to the USDA! And vitamin C too! C’mon, are you kidding me? From leaves?
- 25 x more iron than spinach
- 17 x more calcium than milk
- 4 x more protein than eggs
- 15 x more potassium than bananas
- 10 x more vitamin A than carrots
It has been called a supermarket on a tree for good reason! This is an ideal energy food and, whether eaten or used as a supplement, can help offset the problems of the typical Western diet. But hopefully you are not still eating a typical Western diet. 🙂
Why am I so passionate about this? Because in order to really thrive we need our health. Using moringa each day, I know that I am getting the nutrients my body needs, and in a fully bio-available form. And, as the commercial says, “I’m worth it!”
More about how to use moringa later. For now, watch this amazing video, then go on over to my friend Karen’s site, Blue Yonder Urban Farms*, and check it out.
