Moringa

Moringa ( AKA miracle tree, drumstick tree and in Trinidad “Saijan” ) has major benefits from health to beauty 😉

Moringa is a fast growing tree native to India and is cultivated in Asia, Africa and South America and even locally.  Society is now discovering the benefits of this superfood but this was actually used in ancient times by the Romans, Egyptians and Greeks for its medicinal impact.

Its benefits, are as follows:

  • Reduces tiredness and fatigue – A single serving of moringa (2-3tsp) is approximately 32.2% daily requirement of iron. Iron is essential for the reduction of fatigue in the body
  • Vitamin A which is responsible for healthy radiant skin and vision
  • Vitamin E protects cells from oxidative stress which fights against early aging
  • Vitamin C – Immune Booster !
