Moringa is the richest source of protein, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, making it an exclusive remedy for the prevention and treatment of various diseases for over 4,000 years.
The “magic tree” or “Tree of Life” is called the tree growing in Africa, the Himalayas and India. Most Moringa trees grow in Ghana, but they are also found in South Africa. Moringa is also called “drumstick tree” because its seeds are concentrated in the long and thin pods of a drumstick.
Moringa tree is not standard. A cohesive and elegant evergreen tree can surprise you with hanging branches and feathery leaves. But the most beautiful feature of the plant is its many fragrant inflorescences of white and yellow flowers. The Moringa tree grows rapidly, excels at drought, and grows easily on sandy stalks because it is not demanding on the soil; its immature seeds with pods are used for food (taste reminiscent of asparagus) and ripe seeds for oil.
