    It Surely IS a Miracle Tree 

    Now modern science is proving that these tiny Moringa (Oleifera) leaves are packed with incredible nutrition that can strengthen our bodies and prevent over 300 diseases.

    Its is like growing multi-vitamins and minerals on your doorstep. The organic green Moringa Powder is prepared from carefully selected fresh Moringa leaves under strict hygienic conditions. Moringa has multiple uses and taking into account its potency it is appropriately called “The Miracle Plant”.

    Its use improves and strengthens the immune system thereby enabling the anti-bodies to work more effectively against all kinds of diseases. Moringa is rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and a host of other life giving materials.

    Moringa controls diabetes, malnutrition, increases milk production and milk quality in breast-feeding mothers, reduces risk of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, urinary disorders, menstrual cramps, semen deficiency, diarrhea, migraine headaches, intestinal worms, ulcers, anaemia, tumors, arthritis, epilepsy, asthma.

    Moringa has 4 times the vitamin A in carrots, 7 times the vitamin C in oranges, 4 times the calcium in milk, 2 times the protein in milk and 3 times the potassium in bananas.

    Vitamin C strengthens our immune system and help us to fight off infectious diseases. Citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons are full of vitamin C. Moringa leaves have even more.

    Vitamin A acts as a shield against diseases of the eye, skin and heart, diarrhea and many other ailments. Carrots are very high in Vitamin A, but Moringa leaves are even higher.

    Calcium builds strong bones and teeth and helps in the prevention of osteoporosis. Milk provides lots of calcium, but Moringa provides even more.

    Spinach is high in Iron, but Moringa has 25 times more iron content than spinach, which when combined with its beta-carotene, helps to improve the hemoglobin levels in the blood, which in turn strengthens the immune system.

    Moringa for Global Warming 

    Global warming affects poor countries much more than rich nations. Changes in rainfall patterns, can be very catastrophic for millions of people.

    So with growing population in many countries, fresh water supply is so limited and is critical to existence. How can we collect water and conserve it? How can we protect it against pollution. Now where does Moringa come in here?

    Moringa grows well and adapts to drought – drought resistant. Where water contains earth, like rivers do after rain, Moringa seeds can be crushed and added to these waters and it acts as a natural coagulant and water purifier.

    I would recommend with other research fellows that every home, every school, and every health centters and hospital should grow Moringa and use Moringa tree. This is what is happening in the Philippines. Infact, Marunggay as is known there has been recommended by the Prime Minister to be included in their School Feeding Program.

    Moringa or Malunggay in Hawaiian Farmers and Flea Market 

    If you really want to see how people can be so conscious of their health and looking very strong and glowing, bubbling with joy, check out the Filipinos. I found their secrets and that is Moringa Tree. Every Filipino household has at least one MoringaTree in their yard whether at the back or in the front yard. It is like their national flag.

    Then go to the Farmer’s Market you will find Moringa fresh leaves, Moringa Flower and long healthy green pods display in bundles. A bundle of Moringa leaf sells for about $1:50 and in the supermarket it goes for $1.79 . The pods and the flowers in the bag is $2.00. You have to go early to be able to get it if you need Marunggay that day otherwise you have to wait for the next market day.

    It is amazing that this beautiful, precious Miracle tree is still not being recognized because is not FDA marked and you don’t have to pay much, but it can save you hundreds of dollars in the Doctor’s office and side effects of prescription.

    Everyday, I drive around many neighborhood to get a sight of this life saving tree and wonder if the people ever know what it can do, many health problems would be solved.

    I went to an interview and after the lady asked me my age I told her, she was so taken aback and said “what do you do and what do you eat, I thought I am older than you”. I started telling her the story of Moringa. The Director who interviewed me, was sold out with my presentation of Moringa, and the flyer and the product and bought one from me for her dad.

    I can truly say that the earlier people become aware of Moringa, not just for money but health wise, I think they could save some money and healthier and live longer just consuming Moringa as a lifestyle maintenance supplement, pure and free from chemicals and directly from mother nature with no additives.

    Eight million children are either stillborn or die each year within the first month of life. This figure never makes news. This is a reality. The vast majority of this case is family suffering from poverty and where there is severe poverty, mothers and children are undernourished, and sometimes even malnourished. Moringa itself is no answer to poverty, but it can help with the problems of nutrition.

    What is so special about Moringa leaves is that they can be eaten directly from the tree. They are comparable to eggs because of its high protein content. The most potent part is drying the leaves and making it into powder, and this powder added to porridge, hot cereal, pancake, shakes and smoothies, and can make flakes and add to soups. The roots and flowers also can be eaten and has high nutritional values.

      In fact, moringa cultivation – which is very easy and inexpensive – is highly encouraged by the Philippine government and other health-related sectors. They believe with strong ground that this wondrous plant is a great boost in fighting the prevalent social problem of malnutrition, a malady shared by many countries around the world – particularly those belonging in the third world.
