Raw moringa

Moringa, the miracle plant, is a tree that is taking leaps and bounds all over the world because of its high contents of vitamins and minerals.  It is native to India, Pakistan, parts of Africa and the Caribbean. 

The medicinal properties are antifungal, expectorant, stimulant, diuretic, antibacterial, antioxidant, emmenagogue, tonic, anti-inflammatory as well as antibiotic.

It has become the talk of the town now in Jamaica and it is on everyone's lips and the fact of the matter is that this plant is always nearby. We pass it every day by the street sides and we never knew the medicinal benefits of this herb until currently. Therefore, it has now become an herb that is currently in high demand and everyone wants to cultivate it, even in their back yards.

According to Paula Gordon, Star writer in Jamaica, it is believed to be able to cure 300 illnesses and it is in high demand in the Western section of Jamaica. The leaves are now sold at the markets and on the streets.  It is also believed to reduce swellings and calming nervous system, according to the reporter.

The botanical name is Moringa Oleifera and it is also known as Malunggay to the Filipinos. Other common names are Arango, Ben nut tree, Drumstick tree, Horseradish tree, kelor tree, Malunggay as well as Indian horseradish.

There are seven different trees in the Moringacea family, the closest being stenopetala.

Health benefits of moringa herb

Health benefits may be derived from the entire plant. The seeds, leaves, oil, powder, roots, bark and flowers are all used as herbal medicine. There are thousands of diseases and ailments that this plant can treat.

Its constituents consist of 7 times the Vitamin C in oranges, 4 times the calcium in milk, 4 times the vitamins in carrots, 3 times the potassium in bananas, and 2 times the protein in milk. It is also rich in folate and biotin.

It is a very fast growing plant because my friend planted some of the seeds recently and already you can see them growing quite nicely. The leaves are very safe for consumption and they have no known negative side-effects, nor toxic elements.

Moringa can be most valuable for people as well as animals' well-being and fitness. This excellent medicinal herb can be acquired in tablets as well as powdery form and when consumed it removes toxins from the body system, purifies contaminants within the veins and arteries as well as works against the build up associated with cholesterol.  It is truly a very good herbal detox remedy.

They say belief kills and belief cures and the reason I mentioned this is that my brother is convinced that by drinking the tea, his eyesight has improved drastically. He is not the only one who has testified of the goodness of this herbal plant, there are many others who will blatantly tell you of its healing powers.

Drumstick tree can boost the immune system to fight against HIV/AIDS because it is very effective in the fight against infections.

This medicinal plant is popularly known as the "drumstick tree" for the reason that the pods are utilized by drummers.  Additionally it is popularly known as "horseradish tree" on account of the taste of the roots and this herb can also be used as vegetable or salad.  I personally use the leaves in some of my cooking and there are times when I wash the leaves with water and consume as salad.

It is effective in the treatment of anemia, skin infections, body pains, bowel disorder, fever, headaches, and many other ailments too numerous to even mention.  I think this miracle plant is a cure all.


You can purchase your tea bags, powder, capsules as well as seeds online.  Four moringa capsules per day is a proper dosage.
