      Moringa oleifera is a plant that is often called the drumstick tree, the miracle tree, the ben oil tree, or the horseradish tree. Moringa has been used for centuries due to its medicinal properties and health benefits. It also has antifungal, antiviral, antidepressant, and anti-inflammatory properties.

      The moringa leaves are nutritionally very rich, leaving behind carrots, oranges and even milk in terms of nutrition value. The leaves find many uses in Indian cuisine as they are versatile and can be incorporated in the diet in many ways. Adding them to juices and using them as a stir-fry vegetable are the most common ways in which they are eaten. When consumed in their natural form, the moringa leaves have no side effects.

      Inflammation is how a body naturally responds to pain and injury. Moringa leaves are anti-inflammatory in nature due to the presence of isothiocyanates. They have niazimicin that is known to reign in the development of cancer cells. Inflammation is the root cause of many diseases like cancer, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and many autoimmune diseases. When we suffer an injury or infection, the body suffers increased inflammation. Basically, it is a protective mechanism against trauma but because of wrong lifestyle and an unhealthy diet, inflammation can increase in the body. Long-term inflammation leads to chronic health issues. Eating moringa leaves helps to reduce inflammation.

      Yes Kamala. The world is slowly waking up to a new superfood, one that’s native to India and that we have consumed for centuries. Moringa oleifera – better known as the drumstick tree and also known as the horseradish/ben tree – has been used in Ayurveda for years now. Moringa health benefits include treating and preventing diseases such as diabetes, anemia, arthritis, liver and heart disease, and respiratory, skin and digestive disorders. The bark, leaves, flowers, fruit, seeds and oil of this tree can be used. In India, drumstick pieces are used to make curries and can be added to sambar, etc. It can also be consumed as a powder – fresh leaves are dried and then crushed to a powder.

      You’ll be surprised to know that this green herb which is commonly used in South Indian meals is actually a powerful superfood. The multi-purpose moringa tree is mostly found on the foothills of the Himalayas. Every part of the plant can be put to some use. The leaves, flowers and roots of the drumstick or moringa tree are all edible. The seeds are used to extract oil while the flowers can be cooked and eaten. The most amazing thing about moringa is that every part of the tree offers great health benefits as they are full of essential nutrients and antioxidants.
      Therefore, it is rightly called ‘miracle moringa’. The moringa powder is extracted from the leaves that are sun-dried, crushed and finally ground. Interestingly, the moringa leaves contain three times more iron than spinach. They are also very rich in Vitamin A.
