I would like to let my current, past and future clients and students know that if they are interested in Moringa Seeds or Dried Leaf Tea that I now have each available.

Moringa Loose Dried Leaf 

In comparison a 100 grams of dry moringa leaves contain to other healthy foods:

  • 9 times the protein of yogurt
  • 10 times the vitamin A of carrots
  • 15 times the potassium of bananas
  • 17 times the calcium of milk
  • 12 times the vitamin C of oranges

Dried Moringa Leaves can be steeped into tea or ground into powder.  As tea it has a nice flavour and once infused can be enjoyed warm or cold.  I recommended drinking one to two cups a day to begin to let system integrate the detoxification effects of Moringa.  This tea is beneficial for constipation, can support sounder sleeps and support weight loss due to balancing sugars that changes eating habits.  It’s slows down and reverses some aging due to the increased level of nutrition, antioxidants, beta-carotene, quercetin, and chlorogenic acid.  Read more at Moringa Tree Benefits.

Moringa Seeds

These seeds are viable and living foods as you can see in picture that they are sprouting.  To begin it is recommended to only have one seed and slowly increase this after a number of day.  This gives you time to notice how you are integrating it before add more.  Moringa Seed sweetens the digestive system, works as a detox and immediately cuts cravings for sugar.  It has known to balance out the body sugar levels.  In water purification when the crushed Moringa Seed is added anything that needs to be filtered out sinks to the bottom with the seed particles and the water left on top is clear and potable.  This is similar in the body.  It filters out and takes it out through elimination.

Moringa Seeds & Leaves

Moringa Seeds & Dried Leaves

Early in the year I received some Moringa Seeds as a gift.  Attempts to germinate them was a challenge and unsuccessful.  Though somewhat depressed about not being able to grow them this year I have become enamored by the potential of this plant.  By all accounts it can contribute to the health and wellness on the planet from purifying water, to purifying ones body and supporting nations food and nutritional shortages.

Knowing that the seeds could be eaten, I tossed one in my mouth, chewed and swallowed it.  Later reaching for a glass of water I had the shock of my life.  My mouth exploded with sweetness.  I couldn’t figure out what was wrong.  Was it the water, or was it the glass?   I had to retrace what I had eaten.  Researching this  I received validation when reading it was in fact a common reaction with the Moringa Seed.   I had to smile reading the seed was described as being able to sweeten waters in its ability to purify water.  In some countries that lack potable water the seeds are crushed and added to dirty water.  Any substance in the water sinks to the bottom with the seeds leaving the top water clean and clear.  I am inspired and impressed with this possibility.  I mentioned it to a client whose own brother has developed an industrial water cleaning system and it wasn’t long before I got a message asking what that seed was again!

The Moringa Tree leaves are used fresh, dried as tea or ground into powder to put into capsules for a health supplement.  The pods of the Moringa Tree are cooked and eaten as a vegetable.

I am now drinking 2 small cups of Moringa tea a day made from dried leaves.  It has a nice flavour and I would love to drink more yet want to wait and see how it works with my digestion and elimination system.  I have noticed a change in my hair.  It feels and appears healthier however I am also eating more fermented foods and drinking Beet Kvass.   It will take some time to decide if it is the Moringa or not.

I discovered through Amazon that the Body Shop makes a bar soap using the Moringa Plant.  There is a Body Shop a block away so I stopped in and now trying a bar out.  The immediate effect on my skin is that it is hydrating, it tightens and the skin is softer.  Even with a gardeners hands!   Would I recommend it?  Yes 100%.  However my aim would be to grow it myself and make my soap.  It’s a good thing that one of the new batch of seeds is sprouting!

I have started to use Moringa Oil and find it lighter.  This oil can be used to cook or used for skin, hair and massage products.

Moringa Tree Benefits

Moringa Seeds

Moringa (Moringa Oleifera)

The Moringa Tree is another one of those ancient natural sources of food, nutrition and medicine that has gained popularity as more of us worldwide become aware of it.    It is still used for a cure or prevention of about 300 different ailments in Ayurveda.

This tree grows like a weed in the right climates and with so many beneficial uses it is called a miracle tree.    It originates from the southern foothills of the Himalayas.  It is drought resistant and proven to be good food source so it is being naturalized into the warm areas experiencing food shortages like Malawi, Senegal, and India.  In an earlier post called,  Moringa Seeds & Leaves, a focus was on water purification.  The  Seeds from this tree can purify water when they are crushed making this tree valuable to these countries.

Moringa has antibiotic and antibacterial properties,  and is anti-inflammatory.  It is being explored for edema, suppressing cancer cells, digestion and weight-loss, aging, its anti-diabetic characteristics, ability for lowering cholesterol, and cardio-protective properties.

Moringa Leaves & Seed Pods

The Moringa leaves and seed pods are a source of protein, calcium, beta carotene, vitamin’s A, B1 (thiamine) B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B-6 and and C, folate acid, iron, magnesium,
phosphorus, zinc, potassium, chlorogenic acid and niazimicin.

The leaves are a good source of antioxidants, beta-carotene, quercetin, and chlorogenic acid.  I have read that 100 grams of dry moringa leaf contain:  9 times the protein of yogurt, 10 times the vitamin A of carrots, 15 times the potassium of bananas, 17 times the calcium of milk, 12 times the vitamin C of oranges.
