Moringa Leaves come from a sub-tropical tree known as “the drumstick tree,” and its botanical name is Moringa oleifera. Moringa (Moringa Leaves) is commonly touted as a superfood because it is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds.
Moringa is an extraordinary food source in some parts of the world. When dried the leaves retain loads of vitamins and minerals. Moringa is used in Africa and India in food programs to combat malnutrition. The green seed pods when immature (drumsticks), are prepared similarly to green beans. When the seed pods are mature, the seeds are removed and roasted like nuts or cooked like peas.
