Moringa Tree is an exceptionally nutritious tree with a variety of potential uses. The tree is slender with drooping branches, and grows up to 10 meters in height. The Moringa tree grows very quickly- it comes into leaves at the end of the dry season, when other foods are the scarcest. Actually, the Moringa grows quickly in any tropical climate. Moringa is a versatile plant that can be grown as a tree or as a “perennial-vegetable” under intensive cultivation. Within six months of planting a seed or a piece of trunk, one can cut leaves from the tree. The leaves can be cooked, which looks like cooked spinach, or dried, ground over a screen for several days, and ground into a fine powder that can be added to almost anything as a nutrient supplement.
Moringa leaf powder can be used as a tea, added to beverages, sprinkled on food or taken in capsules. Moringa leaf powder is loaded with nutrition, easy to make, easy to store and easy to use. The ways to incorporate Moringa leaf powder into the diet are truly endless. It can be used in cooking, but high temperatures destroy some of the nutrients.
