One of the most amazing vegetables with abundant health benefits is the Moringa Oleifera. It is sometimes referred to as the ‘tree of life’ or just Moringa in short. This plant is found in the sub-Himalayan areas in countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and India as well as in tropical countries.
The Moringa is known for its medicinal properties which can be stemmed from its fruits, seeds, leaves, flowers and even the bark. It has been used in the past to treat patients with anaemia otherwise known as ‘tired blood’. Besides that, it can be used to treat people with asthma, digestive problems, epilepsy and joint pains among others.
So how does it work?
Moringa is naturally a very strong antioxidant. This means that it plays a vital role in combating free radicals in the body that can lead to cancer.
Besides that, Moringa is a wonderful source for your body to get amino acids which helps in building protein in your body so that food can be broken down properly and for body tissue repair.
In terms of nutrients, Moringa has a long list of minerals that can enhance your health. By drinking half a cup of Moringa juice, you are getting the recommended daily dosage of Vitamin C and A as well. On top of that, you get a lot of iron, calcium, Vitamin B complex and potassium, just to name a few.
In a long run, you get smoother and brighter skin, stronger bones and better joints and muscles while reduced risk of terminal diseases like cancer and hypertension.
